BLOODLINES Has Started Production — GeekTyrant

The Final Destination franchise is being resurrected with a sixth film titled Final Destination: Bloodlines. The film recently started production, and producer Craig Perry shared the following statement on social media, saying:

“After a long, hard slog through the pandemic and the strikes, Day One is finally in the can. 2025 will mark the 25th anniversary of the release of the first installment in the franchise. To honor the occasion with another worldwide theatrical release (in IMAX, no less) is a rare and wonderful thing.

“See you next year! PS: I know, I know — Pet Sematary: Bloodlines. But this is the title we’ve had for three years, and we’re keeping it… for now.”

The next installment of the franchise is being directed by Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein (Freaks). Franchise creator Jeffrey Reddick previously offered up an interesting tease last year, saying:

“This film dives into the film in such a unique way that it attacks it from a different angle so you don’t feel like, ‘Oh, there’s an amazing setup and then there’s gonna be one wrinkle that can potentially save you all that you have to kind of make a moral choice about or do to solve it.’ There’s an expansion of the universe that – I’m being so careful.

“It kind of unearths a whole deep layer to the story that kind of, yes, makes it really, really interesting.”

He added that they are going to change things up a lot as the story will not involve the formula that the franchise beat to death over the first five films.

“I will say that it’s not just going to be another kind of ‘we set up a group of people, they cheat death, and then just death gets them.’ And there’s one wrinkle that we kind of added to every movie to kind of like change it up a little bit: this one is… a true Final Destination movie, but it doesn’t follow that kind of formula that we’ve kind of established.”

I’ve enjoyed some of the films in this franchise, but the first one was the best. I’m curious to see how this sixth film will reinvent things. One thing we do know about the story is that Tony Todd will return to the franchise as William Bludworth, and it will center on first responders.

It’s also said that the film ”digs into Bludworth’s backstory, including a flashback to his childhood that reveals more about his connection to death.”
