‘Final Destination’ Creator Launching Scare-Fare Production Deal (EXCLUSIVE)

Final Destination 5

Global Renaissance Entertainment Group has entered into a multi-picture production deal with Jeffrey Reddick , creator of the “Final Destination” franchise.

Reddick’s new slate with Global, which will feature multi-ethnic and culturally diverse casts, will be led off by Reddick’s screenplay “Superstition: Final Chance,” a horror/thriller set on a university campus.

The film is being set up as the first in a series of pictures aimed at leveraging Reddick’s fan base from the five “Final Destination” movies. CEO Arthur Wylie and chief operating officer Dale Godboldo will produce with Reddick exec producing.

Producers are in talks with a director.

The five “Final Destination” films grossed over $650 million worldwide. Wylie noted that Global Renaissance wants to take advantage of the interest in such films as Warner Bros.’ “The Conjuring,” which generated over $300 million worldwide.

“We knew that we wanted to be in the horror/thriller space,” he said. “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Jeffrey on this endeavor, who enables us to take full advantage of the market’s clear demand for this genre.”

Reddick will also work with Global to develop the adaptation of Omar Tyree’s supernatural thriller “Leslie” into a trilogy of pictures that will take its characters beyond the novel’s story. Tyree is known for his “Flyy Girl” trilogy of novels, which were acquired this year by Lionsgate’s Codeblack Films.
