Sony is moving quickly on their remake of Flatliners, which is being directed by Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
Bloody Disgusting can confirm Sony’s plan to dabble in death on August 18, 2017.
Kiefer Sutherland (Mirrors, The Lost Boys), who played Nelson in the 1990 sci-fi/thriller of the same name, has committed to joining the upcoming remake that also stars Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Kiersey Clemens.
The original film follows a group of medical students who purposefully die and bring each other back to life so as to study “near death” experiences. It was released in 1990 and starred Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, and Julia Roberts.
It is being produced by Laurence Mark and Michael Douglas and will go into production in Toronto in the coming days.
