Devon Sawa explains why he didn’t return for FINAL DESTINATION 2

The first film of Final destination the franchise is easily the best. Now there’s a new movie in the works called Final destination: Stirpiwhich will attempt to breathe new life into the franchise.

Since the film is in production, Devon Sawawho starred in the original film, talked about the franchise and even explained why he didn’t return for the sequel.

Not only did Devon Sawa not appear in Final Destination 2, but the film made sure to mention that his character died at some point between the two films due to a brick falling from a building and hitting him in the head.

Speaking to CB, the actor said: “It just didn’t work out. I wasn’t… I just wasn’t really able to work. Then I took some time out of the business.”

He continued, “My agents have spoken to the producers. They eventually discussed going in a different direction. Maybe I thought I would come back for the third one, but then I never… it just didn’t work out.”

He added: “There were no hard feelings with anyone. I’ve seen every single movie since I went to a couple of previews. They are great films. I am very happy for them.”

Sawa then talked about the upcoming film, saying: “Teo, who played my son in the first season of Chucky, will actually be one of the protagonists in the new season, and I can’t wait to see it. It couldn’t have happened to a better guy. I think he’s a very talented young man, so yeah, I love those movies.”

He then goes on to talk about how the first film was born from an episode of The .”

He continued: “It was originally an episode of The X-Files that was made into a movie, and so it had that supernatural sci-fi element. I think before we started learning how to use CGI so well, and then that’s where we started veering into how many heads we can cut off and all that.

He also spoke about the previous films in the series: “Final Destination 5 was made in 3D and was made exceptionally well. I remember seeing all that stuff flying off the bridge in 3D, and it was done perfectly.”

Speaking about the future of the franchise he added: “Look, it’s evolved. It’s a different movie. I think if I ever revisit Final Destination, I hope it returns to a somewhat supernatural feel. I’m just happy to be a fan right now.”

The next chapter of the franchise will be directed by Zach Lipovsky AND Adam B. Stein (Strange). Franchise creator Jeffrey Reddick he previously offered an interesting preview last year.

Reddick said, “This movie dives into the movie in such a unique way that attacks it from a different angle, so you don’t feel like, ‘Oh, there’s a cool setup and then there’s going to be a wrinkle that can potentially save you. ‘.anything you have to make a moral choice about or do to resolve.’ There is an expansion of the universe that I am very careful about.

“It kind of brings out a deep layer of the story that, yeah, makes it really, really interesting.”

He also said that they will be changing things up a lot since the story won’t involve the formula that the franchise beat to death in the first five films.

Reddick said, “I will say that it won’t be just another kind of ‘let’s create a group of people, they cheat death, and then only death gets them.’ And there’s one feature that we’ve added to each movie to change it up a little bit: This is… a real Final Destination movie, but it doesn’t follow that kind of formula that we’ve established.”

Final destination: Stirpiis now in production and stars Brec Bassinger (A.D Stellar girl), Teo Briones (Chucky), Kaitlyn Santa Juana (The flash), Richard Harmon (The 100), Anna Lore (The Knights of Gotham), Owen Patrick Joyner (Julie and the ghosts), Max Lloyd-Jones (The Boba Fett book), Rya Kihlstedt (Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi) AND Tinpo Lee (The manor).
