Our Co-Founder Jason Klinger (@klinger716) did an interview for the Down the Road Show.
Jeffrey Reddick got his start in the film industry by interning at New Line Cinema when he was 19. He parlayed that into a full time job and worked at the studio for over 11 years. While working at New Line, the studio bought his pitch for Final Destination (2000) and hired him to write the first draft. The film earned over $100 Million at the worldwide box office. Final Destination 2 (2003), which Jeffrey co-wrote the story for and executive produced, was released in 2003 and also crossed the $100 million mark worldwide. With the release of two additional sequels, Final Destination has proven to be an enduring franchise.
Jeffrey’s love of the horror genre is evident in the twelve genre scripts he has sold, or written, for various studios and productions companies. In 2006, Lions Gate Home Entertainment released teen thriller, Tamara (2005) and April 2008 saw the release of the Reddick-scripted remake of the George Romero classic, Day of the Dead (2008).
Currently, Jeffrey has supernatural thriller, Dead Awake, set up at Gold Circle Films - urban horror film, The Pool, at Regent Entertainment and a supernatural TV series at Valhalla Motion Pictures. In addition, Jeffrey is preparing to make his directorial debut with the supernatural thriller, The Final Reel, which is based on a script he wrote.
