Flatliners set pics: Remake of the 1990 movie about medical students who take themselves to the brink of death appear online

The Flatliners set pics show Diego Luna and Nina Dobrev shooting.

It has only just started shooting, but there are already some Flatliners set pics hitting the net. Based on the 1990 movie of the same name which starred Kiefer Sutherland and Julia Roberts, Flatliners revolves around a group of medical students who begin to explore the realm of near death experiences, hoping for insights.

The original was directed by Joel Schumacher, though the in-production remake is being helmed by Niels Arden Oplev, the filmmaker responsible for the original version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Noomi Rapace.

Ben Ripley, who wrote Source Code, is penning the screenplay for the redo.

Here’s the plot synopsis for the original.

Dope Actress Kiersey Clemons Eyes Female Lead In Rick Famuyiwa’s The Flash

8 July 2016 11:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Powers That Be over at Warner Bros. could be teeing up a possible Dope reunion.

That’s according to Variety, revealing today that up-and-comer Kiersey Clemons is circling the coveted female lead in Rick Famuyiwa’s The Flash. Details remain scarce for now, but all signs point to Clemons assuming the role of Iris West, journalist cohort and potential love interest to Barry Allen. Currently portrayed by Candice Patton in The CW’s live-action series, it’s worth remembering that both movie and show will take place in two entirely different worlds.

When it comes to Clemons, viewers first clocked eyes on the 22-year-old in Famuyiwa’s Sundance darling Dope. She would then go on to appear in a handful of New Girl episodes and comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. The meteoric rise doesn’t stop there, though; the actress has also secured a place in Sony’s redo of cult sci-fi Flatliners, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” may not have jump started the DC Comics movie universe with the excitement as planned, but that’s not stopping us from getting excited for the franchise’s future.

Flatliners Remake Brings Back Original Star Kiefer Sutherland

8 July 2016 8:14 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March, we reported that a reboot of the 1990 sci-fi thriller Flatliners is gearing up to start filming this summer, with Ellen Page, Diego Luna and Nina Dobrev attached to star. It was never clear if the filmmakers had planned on reaching out to original cast members such as Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon, but today we have word that Kiefer Sutherland is closing his deal to co-star in the rebooted thriller. The deal isn't finalized yet, but the actor has committed to the project.

The original film followed a group of medical students and close friends who conduct experiments with near death experiences. Each one of them has their heart stopped before being revived instantly, which causes them to experience nightmarish visions of their childhood, reflecting either sins they have committed, or sins committed against them. Their unorthodox extracurricular studies have very dark consequences, as their supernatural visions begin to intensify. »

Kiefer Sutherland On Board For Flatliners Remake

8 July 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kiefer Sutherland is ready to indulge in some wacky science once more.

Deadline reports that, pending a final confirmation between Sutherland and Sony, the actor has committed to starring in the studio’s long-rumored Flatliners remake. It’s a deal that came about after both parties sussed out schedules for both Sutherland’s ABC series Designated Survivor and Flatliners itself.

A re-do of the cult 1990 original, Sutherland is linked to the role of a senior doctor, and will star alongside the fresh faces of Ellen Page, Rogue One star Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemens.

Almost three decades ago, the seasoned actor played the part of a medical student who, alongside Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon and William Baldwin, come together to discover what mysteries lie beyond death – a daring hypothesis that involves the students pushing themselves to their absolute limits to produce near-death experiences.

Unsurprisingly, such an »

Kiefer Sutherland joins the ‘Flatliners’ remake

7 July 2016 11:08 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Kiefer Sutherland has joined the cast of the Flatliners remake over at Sony. The film is a redo of the 1990 original in which Sutherland actually appeared.

Deadline reports that Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kersey Clemens star in Flatliners, a film which sees ‘five medical students 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.’

Niels Arden Oplev is directing, hot of his success with the original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie and the TV series Mr. Robot. Source Code screenwriter Ben Ripley wrote the script for the new version while Laurence Mark and Michael Douglas produce.
