Final Destination 5 Has its Writer – Elm Street and Thing Scribe Eric Heisserer

Talk about hitting the ground running! Having already done a rewrite on the script for Platinum Dunes’ remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street and of course fleshing out the antics of them crazy Swedes in Universal’s prequel of The Thing, writer Eric Heisserer will also be dealing out the death in Final Destination 5!

According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog, “New Line, hoping to stave off a mummifying franchise, is trying to break out of the repetition of the first four movies and believes that Heisserer is part of the solution; the UTA-repped writer is developing a reputation for being the go-to guy for reinventing branded material.”

As of now the exact plot is under wraps, but the above article does confirm that one scene involves a character undergoing laser eye surgery. Anyone who has undergone said procedure can confirm there’s nothing quite like the smell of your own eyes burning!

Look for more soon!
