The next 'DESTINATION' is 3-D

Snakes on a Plane director David R. Ellis has signed on to helm his second Final Destination film, this one to be shot in 3-D.
David R. Ellis is returning to the Final Destination franchise, says The Hollywood Reporter's BORYS KIT.

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

The premise of the series is that even if you cheat death once, it will stalk you until it finishes what was started, usually in a gruesome manner.

FD4, featuring new teens facing new forms of death, was scripted by Eric Bress, a co-writer of Final Destination 2, the Ellis-directed installment which was praised for its elaborately-orchestrated killings.

Ellis, who also directed Cellular, cut his teeth as a second unit director on such films as Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone He currently is in post-production on the thriller Asylum.

Final Destination 3 was planned as a 3-D project until costs ran too high, but now 3-D has become easier to producer.

The modestly-budgeted Final Destination films have been solid performers for New Line Cinema since the 2000 debut of Part 1, which grossed $53.3 million. The 2003 sequel made $46.5 million, and the Number 3 collected $54 million, making it New Line's highest grossing film of 2006.

Final Destination 4 has no announced start date.
