Dunstan And Melton Make A Date With Death – The ‘Final Destination’ Franchise Reboot Chooses Its Writers

I’m a big fan of the warped minds of horror super scriptwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. I latched onto their careers when their script for Feast got optioned on Project Greenlight – and have delighted in their sick, twisted take on horror ever since.

New Line announced today that they have brought the duo on board to script the return of their uber-popular Final Destination franchise.

I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m very curious to see where the boys might take this delightfully diabolical series of films. No details other than the fact that they are terming this sixth go around as a “re-imagining” of the original concept.

As this one works it’s way through the process – I’ll be keeping a very close eye and will send updates your way as they arrive.
