Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
In a world that is full of remakes, we bring you word on yet another classic that will soon be receiving this treatment. It was announced a while back that the 1990 sci-fi thriller FLATLINERS would be getting a redo. The film starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon. It was directed by Joel Schumacher and revolved around a group of medical students who journeyed into the afterworld to find meaning in their own lives before being resuscitated in the nick of time. Of course, things end up going horribly wrong.
With filming now ready to begin, things continue to move forward and take shape for the project as we have learned that original cast member Kiefer Sutherland is looking to join the project.
The actor is currently in serious talks to come on board for the new film. So much so that schedules have been worked out so that he will be able to do work on both FLATLINERS as well as his new ABC series DESIGNATED SURVIVOR.
Sutherland is set to be playing "a seasoned doctor" in the remake. Who knows, if Sutherland's character name turns out to be Nelson Wright, then this film could turn out to be some type of a sequel.
The current cast is made up of Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Kiersey Clemons, Nina Dobrev, and James Norton.
"University Hospital School of Medicine, a group of ambitious medical students are about to die... and live to describe the experience.
Embarking on a daring and arrogant experiment, the five aim to push through the confines of life and touch the face of death.
In their search for knowledge, however, the five discover the chilling consequences of daring to tamper with immortality."
The new FLATLINERS film will be directed by Niels Arden Oplev, who is best known for helming the original THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO and the pilot episode of MR. ROBOT. Ben Ripley will pen the screenplay with Laurence Mark and Michael Douglas producing.
As of now there is no release date for the new FLATLINERS film.
We will continue to bring you more on this story as it unfolds.
