    David R. Ellis (Final Destination 2) has signed to direct and develop Final Destination 4, the latest installment of New Line's popular horror series, which the studio plans to shoot in 3-D.

    While plot details for "FD4" are being kept under wraps, the movie will stand alone: It will feature new teens facing new forms of death.

    The script was written by Eric Bress, who co-wrote Final Destination 2.

    The "Final Destination" films have been solid performers for New Line since they debuted in 2000. The first film grossed $53.3 million, the 2003 sequel made $46.5 million and the third, released in 2006, collected $54 million.

    I like them going back to 3-D with movies. It's a gimmick, but it's a fun gimmick.

    Well, Ellis and Bress were able to put a good spin on the concept with the second film, having the survivors of the traffic pile up turn out to be people who would have died if not for the deaths that occured in the first film. Although I didn't like the main character having multiple prophetic visions throughout the entire film. And I think the ending should have been more suggestive, instead of trying to cram in another shock death.

    Number three was nothing more than the writers/director saying, "how many ways can we obliterate someone's cranial cavity?"

    I'd normally pass...but if it's in 3-D, it could be pretty fun. Decapitated heads and **** flying at you will probably get me laughing my ass off.

    the beginning disaster sequences of two and three were ingenious unfortunatley everything else was lackluster . i think 3-d is worth the effort though . that could turn any mediocre horror flick into a good experience.

    Well if its in 3-D it might be worth seeing I guess. The third installment was kindof lame,and just did'nt contribute any worth to series. I prefered the second movie overall,now that car accident would be hella cool in 3-d.

    I thought the third one was better than the second, but I'm not so sure about them making a fourth one. But since it's in 3-D, I'll probably see it.

    Well, I can see a few more flicks from this series.

    You can have disasters on a...

    Cruise ship.

    That's really it, I guess. In terms of the opening big disaster scene. We've seen the airplane, car crash highway, and rollercoaster. What else it there left?

    it should always include a disaster including multiple people, so far we've seen only modes of transportatin, i've always found it interesting to see an earthquake be the disaster with people that are suppossed to die in a building (collapsing floors, elevator, etc) making it out alive somehow. make it more than just a teen-biased movie. i think if they were to switch it up a little bit with a different audience it woudl fare well. i know there is usually enough middle-aged people in the theatres and buying the dvds, it's not always the youn people, they are a whole audience that is practically forgotten with these movies when you think about maturity and more complex and belivable incidents that don't involve kids. the 2nd one got away from that teen feeling, however the first and 3rd were all about that.

    i'm all for a 4th, i was hoping they'd make another one, i just wonder if it is made in 3-d how it will come off on dvd

    So we had "Saw 4 - It's a trap"

    Now we got "Final Destination 4 - It's a trap"

    I guess we'll get "Mission Impossible 4 - It's a trap"

    End of FD3.:cwink:
    The third had all teens yes, but the first and second had a wider age frame.

    The movies just keep getting more worse as they go along. There is no need for this.

    I always have thought the concept of death as a villain, as a natural force and such was intriguing, original and interesting.

    It's just that the execution needs work. And imagination in regards to the mythos that has potential to expand. And better and more rounded out characters.

    In the right hands ie more talented hands, the franchise would have been a lot more memorable than what currently stands. It's a bit disappointing, to be honest. They heavily focus on the teenage factor as well as style in terms of innovative death scenes, more than the story which could honestly have gone anywhere.

    I think for this one, Rube Goldberg should actually come back to life and start killing people.

    The phrase "It's a trap!" should just die already. Admiral Ackbar must be rolling in his grave.

    I heard that FD3 was actually pretty decent and liked by the fans and critics. If they think the market is right for another, hey, I'd say they should do it.
