  The company is restarting its Final Destination horror franchise, hiring scary movie mavens Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to pen the script.

  Final Destination proved to be a cornerstone for New Line’s horror business in the early 2000s.

  Four more installments followed through 2011, with the franchise balancing shock, blood and giggles while being a consistent moneymaker for New Line, grossing almost $700 million, even as the deaths became more and more elaborate.

  New Line is one of the few major companies working with horror, which is consistent with its long history, dating back to the A Nightmare on Elm Street years in the 1980s.
