Casting is heavily underway with Kiefer Sutherland – star from the original 1990 heart-stopping thriller – Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemens all set to feature in a remake of the great, but criminally underrated, Flatliners.
It has now been announced that Flatliners will be released on 18th August 2017. The new film has been directed by The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo helmer Niels Arden Oplev who has, since 2009, directed episodes of Millennium and Mr Robot, as well as feature films Dead Man Down and Speed Walking.
The original Flatliners followed a group of people who stopped each other’s hearts in the hope of discovering what lies beyond death. As they stayed dead for increasingly longer periods of time, they became haunted by childhood terrors that were more dangerous than the memories themselves once were.
Flatliners has been in development for 3 years, so it is great to see that it finally has cemented a release date!
