Tony Todd has confirmed that Final Destination 6 will go into production later this year.
Beloved by horror fans for his role as the Candyman, amongst others, Todd recently sat down with Fangoria to talk about some of his upcoming projects. The actor with the voice more gravelly than Michael Clarke Duncan gargling pebbles, confirmed that he’s starting shooting the next instalment in the franchise that ironically just won’t die, towards the end of the summer:
“The latest instalment of Final Destination will begin pre-production in Vancouver by the end of this Summer… I know personally I can’t wait to get started. This is one going to be smart, fresh, and definitely a big hit with the fans.”
Todd will be reprising his role as the malevolent William Bludworth, the Reaper’s right-hand man. For the uninitiated (the hell have you been for the last 20 years?), the Final Destination movies see Death setting out to reap the souls of people who have survived accidents at the last minute. Having literally “cheated death”, the Reaper is unhappy and takes these unsuspecting people down with extreme prejudice. And pain.
So, another hour and a half of needlessly violent deaths lies ahead. Any takers? Yep, thought so. Just make sure you’ve not eaten anything first.
