Global Renaissance Entertainment Group has entered into a multi-picture production deal with Jeffrey Reddick, creator of the Final Destination franchise, Variety reports.
Reddick’s new slate with Global, which will feature multi-ethnic and culturally diverse casts, will be led off by Reddick’s screenplay Superstition: Final Chance, a horror/thriller set on a university campus.
The film is being set up as the first in a series of pictures aimed at leveraging Reddick’s fan base from the five Final Destination movies. CEO Arthur Wylie and chief operating officer Dale Godboldo will produce with Reddick exec producing.
Producers are in talks with a director.
Reddick will also work with Global to develop the adaptation of Omar Tyree’s supernatural thriller Leslie into a trilogy of pictures that will take its characters beyond the novel’s story. Tyree is known for his “Flyy Girl” trilogy of novels, which were acquired this year by Lionsgate’s Codeblack Films.
