Flatliners: Kiefer Sutherland To Star In Remake

Film News - Flatliners - Kiefer Sutherland Joins RemakeDeadline exclusively reports that Kiefer Sutherland, one of the originals from the Flatliners film released in 1990, has joined the upcoming remake from Sony Pictures.


The original Flatliners cast included Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, Billy Baldwin and Oliver Platt. The synopsis for the film is as follows:

 Flatliners has us following five medical students who decide to trigger near-death experiences by purposely stopping their hearts. However, as they delve more into their work, the experiments become more and more dangerous and even scary as they are forced to confront the sins of their pasts as well as contend with the paranormal consequences of crossing a line to the other side.


The report states that he and Sony Pictures were able to strike a deal (which hasn’t been signed yet) for him to commit to the role of playing a seasoned doctor in the remake after working out a filming schedule to appear in the film whilst he’s starring on ABC’s Designated Survivor. The cast of the remake so far includes Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemens. The Flatliners remake is being directed by Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo original) on a screenplay written by Ben Ripley (Source Code).


There’s no release date as of yet for the remake. Now I know what some of you are thinking, will the ‘seasoned doctor’ in fact be Kiefer Sutherland reprising the role of Nelson Wright? Time will tell I suppose.
