Final Destination isn’t the kind of franchise that surprises — if you’ve seen any of the four previous installments, you probably already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Final Destination 5.

We’ve been getting a lot of casting info about Final Destination 5, which James Cameron protege Steven Quale is soon directing. Emma Bell from Frozen and The Walking Dead is signing on as the female lead.
She’ll join P.J. Byrne, Tony Todd, David Koechner, Meghan Ory, Nicholas D’Agosto, Ellen Wroe, Arlen Escarpeta and Miles Fisher when the film shoots in Vancouver later this month. Expect more antics in which death stalks people, who end up expiring in rather extravagent ways. [Arrow in the Head]
