For those following the Final Destination franchise — and box office receipts for 2009's The Final Destination show there's a huge number of fans still interested — it's no mystery that any sequel will include a group of people surviving a major disaster after one person receives some kind of premonition. What fans seem to wait for is the imaginative ways that Death comes for the cast of each sequel.
Emma Bell, the star of horror movie Frozen and the first season of AMC's The Walking Dead, talked to Den of Geek about the "awful and gruesome" deaths in Final Destination 5, which, like The Final Destination, will arrive in 3-D.

These movies just find bigger and better methods of killing people off in just awful and gruesome ways, and people love to watch that. But now with the 3D, it's not just going to be watching it, it's going to be almost feeling it. I've seen some of the 3D footage and it's terrifying. When things come flying at the characters in the movie, they really come flying into the audience. People are going to be squirming. The target audience is just going to love, love, love it.
The latest additions to the Final Destination 5 cast, also known as 5nal Destination (no, really), include Ellen Wroe (The Etiquette Ninjas), David Koechner (The Office), P.J. Byrne (Evan Almighty) and Nicholas D'Agosto (Fired Up).
Steven Quale (Aliens of the Deep) is directing, with Eric Heisserer (A Nightmare on Elm Street) responsible for the screenplay. Part 5 in the popular horror franchise sees the characters working on a corporate retreat and escaping the collapse of a bridge. As with the previous 4 Final Destination movies, the set-up will no doubt involve annoyingly stupid teenagers, innovatively dramatic deaths and a higher ick-factor than Piranha 3D.
Final Destination 5 is set to start shooting this month, with an expected 2011 theater release. Posted 08.31.10 by reelz
The makers of the fifth Final Destination movie have titled their sequel with a name that sets new heights of ridiculousness. While the fourth Final Destination eschewed having a number in its title, preferring The Final Destination (and the transparent illusion that the movie would be the last of the franchise), according to Bloody-Disgusting, the fifth Destination movie will be titled 5nal Destination ("five-nal destination?" asks anyone who can read). The title is, thankfully, tentative. Forget the name, what's it about? >> Posted 06.30.10 by Ryan
The Final Destination movies are usually about a group of friends who happen to cheat death until it comes to take its revenge, the franchise is no different. The Final Destination, a.k.a. Final Destination 4 was declared the last movie, until it cheated death with a box office take of $181 million dollars worldwide, despite getting panned by critics. NY Magazine reports that one New Line executive called The Final Destination "the worst film of the franchise." And that's not my opinion; that's everyone's opinion.
Part of The Final Destination's success was from 3-D, the first of the franchise to use the format. The other part was the international box office, totaling $116 million of the overall box office. Hoping to continue their success, New Line hired A Nightmare on Elm Street screenwriter Eric Heisserer to help bring the franchise back to basics, and have brought in a director that has experience not only with special effects but 3-D as well.
