The first supernatural thriller in New Line's Final Destination series was released in 2000. Starring Devon Sawa, Ali Larter and Seann William Scott, it was about people killed after escaping a plane explosion that one member of the group had a premonition about.

The most recent installment -- Final Destination 5 -- was in theaters in 2011. The cast included Nicholas D'Agosto, Emma Bell, Miles Fisher, Arlen Escarpeta, David Koechner and Tony Todd.

No plot details or casting for the new movie have been announced yet.
