Last Friday, Hollywood actors joined screenwriters on strike— the first double strike since 1960 — which means actors who are members of the SAG-AFTRA guild likely won’t be able to work on the New Line Cinema movie.

The 6th movie in Final Destination franchise was scheduled to start filming in metro Vancouver at the end of the month, with much of the action to take place in Cloverdale.

What’s a Final Destination movie about?: A character has a premonition of a horrific and deadly event, cheats their own death, and saves several other lives in the process, only to have Death, as a personified but unstoppable force, come for the survivors one by one.

Final Destination Franchise:

So far, the Final Destination horror movies have centred on people who have premonitions of a plane crash, multi-car freeway pileup, roller coaster crash, racetrack stands collapse and bridge collapse, who then cheat their own deaths, as well as saving other lives in the process, only to have Death come for them all in the end — one by one.

In Final Destination 5 (2011), Vancouver’s Lions Gate Bridge starred as the collapsing bridge.

Death returns to claim the lucky survivors of a deadly bridge collapse in this fifth frightening installment in the series.

Final Destination 6 is headed for Warner Bros.-Discovery’s Max streaming service.
