Death is a concept we know disturbingly little about. That is, you miraculously evade it one day, and the next, a vengeful force claims your life in the most unexpected way possible. This has been the concept of a popular New Line Cinema film series, which has been stagnant for ten years. However, this situation will change thanks to the director of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Jon watts, who will produce a sixth installment of Final destination. Excited?
This week, it was disclosed that Final Destination 6 will feature Jon Watts as producer, coupled with the fact that he conceived the story for the film and its narrative treatment. Not for that reason, he will act as a screenwriter, since within this department are Lori Evans Taylor -signed in October 2021- and Guy Busick, who has just written Bloody wedding and the novel movie scream. On the other hand, the project does not yet have anyone in the executive chair.
In collusion with Watts, his wife Dianne McGunigle, Sheila Hanahan Taylor and the veteran also produce Craig perry, who played that same role for all previous films in the franchise.
“Both Dianne and I have been huge fans of Final Destination from the beginning,” Watts said in a statement, via Deadline. “So it will be fun and exciting to be able to participate in the making of a new story with New Line and the original team.”

“Jon and Dianne’s passion for the show is only matched by how much fun it is to work with. Sheila and I couldn’t be more excited to have her creative energy powering this latest installment in the franchise. Final destination with New Line. With the inspired execution of Guy and Lori, building on Jon’s original idea, we have a movie that audiences will love. “
