Gruber, Bress inked to pen ‘Final’ redux

Zide/Perry to produce pic, set for production before anticipated strikes

Scribes Jonathan Gruber and Erik Bress have been hired to pen “Final Destination 2,” the sequel to last spring’s hit New Line Cinema release.

Warren Zide and Craig Perry of Zide/Perry Entertainment will, as with the first pic, produce this one, which is on a fast track to move into production before the anticipated writer and thesp strikes next summer.

“Final Destination” told the story of a boy who foretells a plane crash and warns his friends not to take the flight. The airliner goes down without his pals on board, but subsequently they get killed in mysterious ways.

Prior pen credit

Gruber and Bress previously penned the spec “Frozen,” an actioner that Phoenix Pictures acquired earlier this year.

Gruber and Bress are repped by Endeavor and attorney Dave Krintzman; Bender-Spink are their managers.
