Back in 1990, the sci-fi thriller FLATLINERS arrived on the scene. The film starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and was directed by Joel Schumacher. The story 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.
It has been known for a little while now that a FLATLINERS remake has been in the works. As a matter of fact the film just recently went into production.
We have now learned that actor Beau Mirchoff has officially joined the cast.
Mirchoff previously appeared in SCARY MOVIE 4 as well as THE GRUDGE 3.
He joins a cast that is made up of Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Kiersey Clemons, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, Charlotte McKinney, and original cast member Kiefer Sutherland.
"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.
Be sure to mark your calendar down for August 18th, 2017 as this is the current release date for FLATLINERS.
