MORE LARTER, MORE DESTINATION
Ali Larter talked with Sci-Fi today about how a Final Destination 2 was never really an option and how he never thought he'd be doing a sequel. Plus, check out some new photos.
Sci-Fi reports, 'Ali Larter, who reprises the role of Clear Rivers in the upcoming sequel Final Destination 2, told SCI FI Wire that she originally had no intention of returning for a second film. 'I have to say that, number one, I didn't plan on coming back,' Larter said in an interview while promoting the film. 'When we shot the first one, we had no idea there was going to be a sequel at all. And with the first one being such a hit, and so many people really [loving] the movie, then I started hearing through the grapevine that another one may be happening. And then three years had passed since the first one, and I've grown on an emotional level and a work level, and I wasn't really sure if it was something that I wanted to do.'
'Larter was ultimately convinced, she said, by a strong script that remained true to the spirit of the original. 'I felt like the script was really tight, and it was what the first one was about,' she said. 'This is for the fans of the first one. What they loved about that, they're getting 10 doses of in this one.'
'Like the original, Final Destination 2 centers around a teenager who has a premonition of a horrible crash and saves the lives of seven others who would have otherwise died. But the survivors learn there is no escaping death, and perish one by one in seemingly bizarre accidents. This time, the crash takes place on a crowded freeway, rather than an airplane, and the subsequent deaths are even more elaborate and outlandish. 'I think it's definitely a little bit more tongue-in-cheek,' Larter said. 'I think that they understand the tone of the movie in this one. In the first one, it was just a fluke that it came together, so I think they kind of figured out the formula and brought it back.' Final Destination 2 opens Jan. 31.'
