"Saw" screenwriters Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have been hired by New Line studio to write the sixth instalment of "Final Destination" horror franchise.

New Line is reviving its "Final Destination" franchise, which has been dormant since 2011, reports variety.com.

The five films grossed nearly $700 million worldwide between 2000 and 2011. Unlike most horror franchises, the antagonist was Death as an unavoidable fate manifesting itself in a myriad of ways.

In the first "Final Destination", a high school student played by Devon Sawa has a premonition the plane he is about to board will explode, leading to several passengers being left behind before the plane actually explodes.

The survivors are then killed in a series of bizarre accidents, such as Kerr Smith's character being crushed by a neon sign.

New Line's most successful recent movies have been in the relatively low-cost horror genre. Those include the adaptation of Stephen King's "It", which hit $700 million in worldwide box office, and in the "Conjuring" universe, which has seen five films deliver $1.6 billion cumulatively in worldwide box office since 2013.
