Jeffrey Reddick made his first connection to the film industry, at age 14, when he wrote a prequel to “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and mailed it Bob Shaye, the President of New Line Cinema. Five years later, when Jeffrey went to New York, at age 19, Bob Shaye offered him an internship at New Line Cinema, which turned into an 11-year stint at the studio.
Jeffrey shot to horror fame with the creation of “Final Destination” film franchise. He co-wrote the story and Executive Produced “Final Destination 2.” With the release of the fifth “Final Destination” in 2011, Jeffrey cemented his status as one of the few screenwriters to create an enduring horror franchise.
