- After years of second unit directing for James Cameron, Steven Quale will make his big screen feature debut on Final Destination 5. At the very least, given Quale's involvement with Avatar, the 3D deaths this time around should look better than they did in the abysmal The Final Destination. I'm sure plenty will rightfully scoff at the idea of yet another Final Destination film, but I actually think this is pretty cool news if only because Quale started his career as a production assistant on The Abyss. It always makes me happy to see people climb the ranks, even if it is a slow and steady climb.
