The Final Destination franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month. And to celebrate the occasion, series producer Craig Perry talked a bit about the planned new movie, teasing that nobody will look at a revolving door in the same way again…
Specifically, series producer Craig Perry tells Digital Spy: “I don’t think anybody will look at a revolving door in the same way again…“
This teases comes to us on the heels of Perry revealing the new film will center on EMTs, firefighters, and other first-responders, saying: “We’re toying with having it take place in the world of first responders: EMTs, firemen, and police. These people deal with death on the front lines every day and make choices that can cause people to live or die. We rely on their good judgment, expertise, and calm demeanor. So why not put those people in the nightmare situation where every choice can bring about life and death – but now for themselves? We’re thinking that world might be an interesting way into a Final Destination movie, and one which can also generate unique set pieces in a very credible way.”
For those that somehow might not know, the original film centered on Alex Browning (Devon Sawa), who is embarking on a trip to Paris and experiences a premonition — he sees the plane explode moments after leaving the ground. Alex insists that everyone get off the plane and 7 people including Alex, are forced to disembark. All watch as the plane actually explodes in a fireball. He and the other survivors have briefly cheated death, but will not be able to evade their fate for very long. One by one, these fugitives from fate fall victim to the grim reaper.
