Todd Threatens Final Destinations 6 & 7
Next instalments will shoot together

01 February 2011  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Dread Central

Tony Todd has revealed that two more Final Destination sequels are almost certain, as part 5 heads our way.

What was missing from part 4, The Final Destination? Scares? Yes. Entertainment? Certainly. But the cause of the most fan chagrin was Todd's absence as portentous series regular Bludworth. 

That oversight seems to have been thoroughly rectified in the forthcoming 5nal Destination (yes, we know what it looks like, just, y'know, don't), with Todd confirming to Dread Central that his part has been hugely expanded (fnar) this time around.

The erstwhile Candyman also reveals "The producer told me that if [part 5] opens at number one... they're going to shoot the next two simultaneously."

Todd says that historically the series has performed in just this chart-topping way, making its survival very likely. He's not quite right though: the fourth is the only one to have topped the box office on its opening weekend, although its predecessors certainly performed strongly. 5nal Destination then (look, just stop it!), has the weight of future Finals on its shoulders. Did The Final Destination sound the death knell of the franchise, or will it beat the reaper yet again? And following a plane crash, a freeway pile-up, a rollercoaster smash, a NASCAR tragedy and a suspension bridge collapse, what disasters are left? We've got our fingers crossed for asteroid strike.

5nal Destination 3D is out on August 26.

why?
i was under the impression that the 4th was the last? THE final destination? the 4th was shite, trashy 3d graphics and crap plot, it wasn't entertaining and the gore was like something out of a tv movie.... granted final destination was never the pinnacle of movie making but they have(had?) a loyal following as they were fun and for the most part unique.... this will kill the series....don't do a SAW....

EARTHQUAKE!
They should do an earthquake if they want to go bigh! Or maybe thyey can take to the seas and have a Shipping accident. But it isn't the catastrophe that matters - it's they way they deal with it. all four have had a character getting freakout out by visions and then seeing it happen. Maybe next time they shoulkd just have it happen without the tedious build up. Shipping accident could be cool. They could set the whole thing at sea.. have an accident be averted, and then for the rest o More
