Steven Quale To Helm Fifth "Final Destination"

By our guest blogger, Matt Jussim


Steven Quale, the visual effects guru who also worked as second unit director on "Titanic" and "Avatar," has been hired to helm the 3D fifth entry in the "Final Destination" franchise for New Line.

According to Variety: New Line has tapped visual effects vet Steven Quale -- a longtime associate of James Cameron -- as director for "Final Destination 5." Quale also worked on special effects on "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" and directed "Aliens of the Deep" for Disney.

Story details on the sequel are being kept under wraps, but it will kick off with an opening scene on a suspension bridge and involve laser eye surgery in another scene.

Eric Heisserer ("A Nightmare on Elm Street") is penning the script while Craig Perry and Warren Zide will produce.

Although the “Final Destination” films have declined in quality as each sequel has come out, they are sure money makers. With Quale directing, the franchise is moving in the right direction. Even if the story is poorly written, you know the action will be top notch given all of his experience with James Cameron. If the story is up to snuff, this could end up as a much better film than the past few installments.

Shooting kicks off September 13th for release next August.
