You got to love Twitter, a place where a writer, director or star can spit out a quick quotable blurb for us to quickly write up story on.
Final Destination 5 screenwriter Eric Heisserer reports in with some uplifting news after seeing an early cut of the film. “Saw a cut of #FD5 last week. You guys are gonna love the deaths. Esp the lasik sequence,” he teases, referencing a death sequence that sold New Line Cinema on hiring Heisserer for the fourth sequel. “There is a LOT of character development in the FD5 script,” he adds, “Unsure how much will survive editing. Fingers crossed.”
You’re telling me, I’m crossing my toes too. After the two previous terrible sequels, the producers promised a darker “return to the roots” style. And frankly, the more character development, the more you’ll care when those little teen bastards die.
Directed by Steven Quale, and in theaters August 26, Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.
