‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Director to Reboot ‘Final Destination’ Franchise

Those who cheat Death will be stalked by its unseen hand once more.

Spider-Man: No Way Home has finally arrived in Philippine theaters, and while we’re still wondering what’s next for Spidey and the whole MCU, we know that its director, Jon Watts, is bringing another movie franchise back to life.

According to Hollywood Reporter, the director has joined the creative team behind New Line’s relaunch of the famous horror franchise Final Destination. Watts serves as the producer and wrote a treatment and story for the project titled Final Destination 6, which will head straight to HBO Max.

Guy Busick, who worked on Ready or Not and the Scream reboot is writing the new project’s screenplay with Lori Evans Taylor. Also on the producing team are Craig Perry, Sheila Hanahan Taylor, and Dianne McGunigle, Watts’ wife and manager.

After its huge success, the first Final Destination film from the early 2000s quickly became a famous horror film franchise, spawning four sequels, novels, and even a comic book series. Each story revolves around an individual who cheats death through a premonition, also saving several people around him or her. But Death is never done with them, as an unseen yet unstoppable force kills them off one by one.

Further details about the upcoming reboot of the film series are yet to be revealed.
