Lori Evans Taylor (Bed Rest) and Guy Busick, who penned the new Scream that hits theaters on Friday, are writing the script based off of Watts' story and treatment.

Joining Watts on Final Destination 6 as a producer is his wife and manager Dianne McGunigle. Final Destination series producer Craig Perry is also producing along with Sheila Hanahan Taylor.

"Both Dianne and I have been massive fans of Final Destination from the very beginning. So to be able to have a hand in crafting a new story with the original team and New Line is going to be both fun and exciting," Watts said in a statement.

Final Destination 6 will be released as an HBO Max original. Final Destination 5 was released in 2011. The horror series follows a group of characters who die in unique ways after they initially escape death.
