Marvel director at Final Destination 6 production

Jon Watts, director of the Spider-Man trilogy with Tom Holland, will produce a sixth installment of the Final Destination 6 saga for HBO Max.

Sequels, reboots and other spinoff productions are legion in Hollywood. Final destination, a symbol of the horror genre in the 2000s will not escape it since a sixth opus is in preparation.
