Ellis Returns for Final Destination 4


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.
