Steven Quale will direct the next installment of New Line's horror franchise Final Destination 5. Quale is the protege of James Cameron, he worked with Cameron as second unit director on the film Avatar, and Titanic, but he started as a production assistant on The Abyss. This will be his first time directing a feature film, and we wish him luck.
Apparently Cameron called up New Line to give them his recommendation. Of course that's what landed him the gig! It should be interesting to see if he takes the franchise in a whole new direction, which is what it needs if they are going to keep telling the same story over, and over again.
