Back in August we reported that the Goetz Brothers were in talks to direct a film titled Superstition for Lionsgate and we can now confirm that they have officially signed on for the film, which is now titled Superstition: Final Chance.
The creator of Final Destination, Jeffrey Reddick has been working on Superstition: Final Chance since he signed a production deal with Global Renaissance Entertainment Group in 2013. Finally, the film has landed itself a couple of directors who, most recently, brought us the re-imagining of Martyrs. We actually thought it wasn’t too bad; not a touch as disturbing or affecting as Pascal Laugier’s original of course, but a solid remake nonetheless. You can check out our review here.
After two deaths occur on a university campus, a young co-ed (Cara) and her friends are lured into participating in The Dead Pool – an online game based on the superstition that ‘death comes in threes,’ where students place bets on who will die next. No one knows who started the game, but everyone’s playing. However, what starts as a morbid joke soon turns to terror when the person Cara ‘selected’ actually dies and Cara wins The Dead Pool. Now, The Reaper, the mysterious creator of The Dead Pool, starts stalking Cara and her friends, killing them one by one. To make things worse, all of the clues point to Cara as the killer, making her an outcast on campus.
Superstition: Final Chance has now begun filming, so expect some images and a trailer very soon.
