FD4 4 Realz!

Possibly my favorite existing franchise, the Final Destination films, whether merely good (Parts 1 and 3) or incredibly eye-gougingly instantaneous-orgasm-inducingly awesometastic (Part 2, I am looking at you), are always a fun time in the theater. So imagine my happiness (seriously, stop everything you're doing right now - set down the scone! - and just imagine it!) upon reading that plans for a Part 4 are moving ahead.... and it's gonna be in 3-D!!! From BD:

"David R. Ellis is coming back to New Line for more death, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The director 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.

The premise of the series is that even if you cheat death once, a force that is death itself will stalk you until it finishes what is started, usually in a gruesome fashion. 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."Ellis directed the second installment, which was praised for its elaborately orchestrated killings. New Line's Richard Brener and Walter Hamada are overseeing the project, which has no start date.

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. The movies usually are made for at least half that and do well on home video."

So what we have here are the writer and director of the aforementioned awesometastic Part 2 teaming up again! And what we have here, as in "right here in my pants," is a mess from this news.

This series is so so so so ripe for 3D, too. I can only imagine the dodging of intestinal matter I will experience in spectacular 3D glory. Wonderful!!!

I hope you'll pardon me if I find the mess in your pants far more exciting.

Yeah, so I was reading slash last night. So?

OMG, this is incredibly awesome. And we all know that 3D makes horror franchises instantly better.
