New Line is reviving its "Final Destination" franchise, which has been dormant since 2011, reports variety.com.
The five films grossed nearly $700 million worldwide between 2000 and 2011. Unlike most horror franchises, the antagonist was Death as an unavoidable fate manifesting itself in a myriad of ways.
In the first "Final Destination", a high school student played by Devon Sawa has a premonition the plane he is about to board will explode, leading to several passengers being left behind before the plane actually explodes.
The survivors are then killed in a series of bizarre accidents, such as Kerr Smith's character being crushed by a neon sign.
New Line's most successful recent movies have been in the relatively low-cost horror genre. Those include the adaptation of Stephen King's "It", which hit $700 million in worldwide box office, and in the "Conjuring" universe, which has seen five films deliver $1.6 billion cumulatively in worldwide box office since 2013.
