New Line has set The Thing prequel scribe Eric Heisserer to write the script for Final Destination 5, according to Heat Vision.

The plot is being kept under wraps, although one scene involves a character undergoing laser-eye surgery.

New Line is trying to break out of the repetition of the first four movies and believes that Heisserer is part of the solution.
