Last week, we reported that original Flatliners star Kiefer Sutherland has signed on to star in Sony Pictures new remake, which was scheduled to start shooting late last week. While we don't know if filming has in fact started, Sony Pictures has gone ahead and set a release date for this new Flatliners, which will hit theaters on August 18, 2017. While it is currently the only movie set for release on that date, that entire month is chocked full of high-profile releases.
The schedule for August 2017 at Box Office Mojo reveals that 20th Century Fox's Alien: Covenant and Open Road Films' Blazing Samurai will hit theaters on August 4, 2017. That will be followed by Warner Bros.' theatrical remake of CHiPS, Focus Features' The Coldest City and Sony/Columbia Pictures' EmojiMovie: Express Yourself on August 11, 2017. The only other movie slated for release that month is Disney's Villa Capri, hitting theaters »
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. »
Ian Truitner's deep space thriller Teleios had its world premier at the Sci-Fi London Film fest on last night and it screens again this Wednesday, May 4 at 9:00 pm.

Teleios stars Sunny Mabrey (Species III, Michael Nouri (Damages), Lance Broadway (Olympus Has Fallen), Tj Hoban ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") and Mykel Shannon Jenkins ("The Bold and the Beautiful").

Just over a year ago, Nina Dobrev announced she would be leaving her hit series The Vampire Diaries to pursue more work on the big screen. Earlier this year, she landed a role in XXX: The Return of Xander Cage alongside Vin Diesel, and now the actress is eyeing her follow-up to that project. Today we have a new report that the actress is in talks to join Sony Pictures' remake of the 1990 sci-fi classic Flatliners.
Ellen Page and Diego Luna are already on board to star, although nothing is known about the characters they're playing. Deadline reveals that Nina Dobrev is portraying Marlo, an overachieving student who is at the top of her class. 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 »

First up we have an early effort from comedy maestro Bob Clark (Porky’S, A Christmas Story… Ok, Ok, he die-rected the original Black Christmas and Deathdream too) titled Children Shouldn’T Play With Dead Things. Now, if you are of a certain age, you have doubtless seen this flick and know of its merits (or charming lack thereof), but for the majority of you, this is going to be your first time. So, much like that captain of the football team did on prom night, I’m going to gently ease you through this experience… or fondle you clumsily.
At the insistence of their boorish (that’s really too polite; douche-nozzle would probably be more accurate) stage director, »
