There Will Never Be a Final ‘Final Destination’ Movie

By  · Published on February 1st, 2011

Final Destination 5, which might be annoyingly titled 5nal Destination (and, no, it didn’t make sense when Se7en did it either), hasn’t even seen theaters, but the future looks bright for a sixth and seventh installment of the franchise. Even though the last movie – The Final Destination – was a massive chore to watch, it still made a disgusting amount of money.

Now, according to an interview with Tony Todd (over at Dread Central), if the fifth opens at the number one spot, the production will shoot the next two back to back. Fortunately, we all already know the synopsis for the next three movies: “When a young (man or woman) sees the future and saves his (class/friends/colleagues/internet meet-up group) from dying in an horrific (accident of some sort on a large scale), they think they’ve dodged a bullet. Sadly for them, Death still wants their bodies in the ground and stalks them one by one until they all die in creative ways.

Gird your loins. It’s probably going to happen.
