‘Final Destination’ Creator Tapped To Adapt YA ‘The Undertakers’ Series


Jeffrey Reddick, creator of the multi-sequel Final Destination franchise, will adapt the Young Adult ‘Undertakers’ series, by Ty Drago.


Jeffrey Reddick has signed on with Andrew van den Houten’s Modernciné Films to bring Ty Drago’s zombie young adult series to the big screen. “I’ve been trying to find a project to do with Andrew for years and when I read Ty’s book I knew this was the one. It’s a unique concept with compelling characters and a fun mixture of adventure, cool sci-fi and intense horror,” said Reddick, who created the multi-sequel Final Destination franchise. Drago’s The Undertakers: Rise Of The Corpses was published in 2011 with The Undertakers: Queen Of The Dead following in 2012. Reddick has already completed a screenplay based on the first book.
