Final Destination 6 Directors Had the Perfect Pitch To Get the Job

On the heels of their hiring, new details about Final Destination 6 directors Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein delivered their perfect pitch to get the job, as reported by Screenrant.

Created by Jeffrey Reddick and based on a script not picked up for The X-Files, the horror franchise revolves around a protagonist who has a premonition of their violent death and saves themselves and a group of people.

The Final Destination films then see the survivors picked off one by one by an unseen force generally assumed to be Death making up for their attempts to escape fate.

Currently spanning five movies, the Final Destination franchise has seen a range of critical reception, with praise generally directed towards the innovative death sequences while the writing and characters have largely seen mixed reviews.

Having grossed over $666 million against its combined $154 million production budgets, many expected the franchise to keep going, only for New Line Cinema to let it remain dormant after Final Destination 5, in spite of its seeing the best reviews and second-best box office returns.

Word of a Final Destination 6 began swirling in 2019, with initial reports calling it a “re-imagining” of the franchise, and now fans of the series have a reason to feel confident for its return.

This past week brought the news from The Hollywood Reporter that Final Destination 6 had founds its directors in Freaks duo Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein.

Included in the report was details of their perfect pitch to get the job, in which they faked their deaths on a Zoom call with producers for the film, quickly assuring their confidence in hiring the two. See the pitch details below:

Lipovsky and Stein rose to the top thanks to their ideas and passion for the Final Destination brand. According to sources, the duo were already in line to get the gig when one final Zoom pitch meeting became what some in Hollywood called the Zoom call to end all Zoom calls. The duo made their pitch to New Line execs and producers together, with a burning fireplace behind them. As they wrapped up the meeting, the fire came alive, and the mantel began burning. The filmmakers stopped and, after a tense moment, quickly extinguished the flames. As they sat down, everyone relieved the accident had passed, a wrenching creak was heard and suddenly, the whizzing ceiling fan broke off and flew down, decapitating one of the filmmakers. The execs and producers went from concern to all-out laughter. The bit, using a combination of prerecorded footage and visual effects, had transitioned seamlessly and showed their unabashed enthusiasm. It was, to all involved, the cherry on top.
