Jeffrey Reddick

Jeffrey Aaron Reddick (professionally known as Jeffrey Reddick) was born in Jackson, Kentucky in 1969 and studied at Berea College, the first college in the southern United States to be co-educational and racially integrated.  

At the age of 14, Reddick wrote a treatment for a prequel to the Wes Craven classic, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and sent it to distribution company, New Line Cinema. New Line Cinema returned the treatment unread as it did not accept unsolicited materials. Reddick wrote an aggressive letter to New Line Cinema founder, Robert “Bob” Shaye, which won him over. Shaye read the treatment and responded. This started a phone-and-letter relationship between Reddick, Shaye, and Shaye’s assistant, which lasted for years. While in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, Reddick was offered an internship by Bob Shaye and accepted. This internship turned into over a decade at the studio. In the year 2000, New Line Cinema produced Reddick’s screenplay for the film, Final Destination, which was created by Reddick, spawned four successful sequels (with another on the way!) and grossed over $650m worldwide. 

Whilst most notable for his work in the horror genre, Reddick has recently been involved in two animated projects for Netflix, including a spin-off of the classic Japanese comic book Usagi Yojimbo by Stan Sakai. He is currently working on an adaptation of the Young Adult book series, The Adventures of Young Captain Nemo and made his directorial debut with the mystery thriller Don’t Look Back in 2020. 

Film credits include Final Destination, Final Destination 2, Tamara, A Life’s Work, Day of the Dead, 200 Hours, The Final Wish, The Call, Good Samaritan, Don’t Look Back, Dead Awake, Return to the Cabin by the Lake, Solo Respira, The Night Sitter, Sleep No More, Bodysnatch, 13 Slays Till X-Mas, Deathcember and Extremity.
