Nearly 20 years after the first Final Destination was released, Death itself is set to once again stalk a group of young survivors, killing them one-by-one in ridiculous, inventive ways.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a reboot is being written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the duo behind the scripts of four Saw movies, Piranha 3DD and The Collector.
The Final Destination franchise so far consists of five films released between 2000 and 2011, grossing a worldwide total of US$665 million collectively.
New Line Cinema is said to be billing the new film as a “re-imagining” of the franchise, so it may not be titled Final Destination 6.
The studio will be hoping the reboot is as successful as two of its other major horror franchises – It and The Conjuring Universe, both of which have movies set to hit cinemas in 2019.
Final Destination, directed by James Wong, started with a young man having a premonition of a plane crash before taking off. He convinced his friends to get off the plane before it did indeed crash, killing everybody onboard.
However, Death – personified as an unstoppable force – was unhappy with the group “cheating” death, so sought to kill off each one of them via freak accidents.
The sequels all followed the same formula, with different disasters filling in for the plane crash including a suspension bridge collapse, a rollercoaster accident and a multi-car crash on a highway.
Plot details for the new film have not been announced.
