**UPDATE**: Some Crazy Casting Talk for Final Destination 5
Now we've heard some crazy casting rumors during the time we've been running Dread Central, but today's may just take the cake. What do model, musician, and actor Adam Bertrand; High School Musical alum Ashley Tisdale; and singing sensation Lady Gaga have in common? Read on to find out!
According to TMZ all three could be appearing in the next 3D death-cheating extravaganza from Warner Brothers currently known as Final Destination 5. Bertrand is signed to Warner Bros. Records (so there's that connection) and is said to have "conquered" his audition with Tisdale. Just keep in mind that Bertrand doesn't have the best track record in regards to holding onto roles--he was slated to play the lead in 2009's 'Bandslam' but was replaced last-minute by Gaelan Connell.
As for the Lady Gaga tie-in, Bertrand will be the opening act for her performances at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA, on August 16th and 17th, and fans have made it clear that they hope Gaga, who is said to be best friends with Bertrand and has casted him in several of her music videos, make a cameo appearance in Final Destination 5, which would be her first movie role. Likewise, fans have expressed interest in seeing any number of Tisdale's 'High School Musical' costars make appearances.
The news has come in. The above is all bogus. Funny, but bogus. Breathe easier Destination fans!
At last month's ShoWest convention Warner Bros.' Alan Horn mentioned that this installment will be longer than 2009's The Final Destination. Not sure if that's necessarily a good thing, but we're keeping an open mind for now.
Look for more soon!
