Flatliners' Steve Byers talks shooting in his native Toronto

Flatliners' Steve Byers talks shooting in his native TorontoFlatliners' Steve Byers talks shooting in his native TorontoMarni Weisz - Editor, Cineplex Magazine9/27/2017 10:54:00 Am

Every actor knows, you always say yes.

When a director asks, “Can you ride a horse?” Yes. “Bungee jump?” Yes. “Speak Mandarin?” Yes. You figure it out later.

So when Flatliners director Niels Arden Oplev asked Steve Byers if he could drive standard, well, that was an easy one. At some point in his life the Toronto actor had been behind the wheel of a standard vehicle.

Byers (TV’s "Reign", "Slasher" and "Falcon Beach") had been cast as Sam, boyfriend to Marlo (Nina Dobrev), one of the medical students experimenting with near-death experiences in the spooky sequel to 1990’s Flatliners.

Oplev was thrilled. He’d found a vintage Porsche he wanted to use, and it was only available in standard.

“I said to my wife,

Flatliners Trailer #2 Makes Death Look Like a Blast
Just like this group of medical students in this upcoming thriller, the Flatliners franchise has been brought back from the dead with a new movie hitting theaters later this month. To get fans ready for this "revival" that continues the story from the original 1990 movie, Sony Pictures has dropped a new trailer, that shows how these medical students' lives change drastically after an experiment where they're brought back from the dead. The trailer also reveals the sequel's new tagline, "You haven't lived until you've died."

In Flatliners, five medical students, obsessed by the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. But as their experiments become increasingly dangerous, they are each haunted by the sins of their pasts, brought on

Flatliners Remake Is Ready for Reshoots

Flatliners Remake Is Ready for Reshoots
Back in November, Sony Pictures made a numberof changes to their upcoming release schedule, including a shift of their Flatliners remake release date, pushing it from the summer slot of August 18 to September 29. As it turns out, there was a good reason for that shift, with director Niels Arden Oplev assembling his cast once again for reshoots, which will take place in Toronto next month. If the studio would have kept the old release date, it would have been cutting it too close for comfort.

Iatse 873, the local Toronto chapter of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees union, revealed on their website that Flatliners reshoots have been scheduled in Toronto for eight days, spanning July 24 to August 1. If Sony would have kept the August 18 release intact, the production would have certainly been rushing to get this new footage into the movie in just a few short weeks. Still, even with the release date delay,

The Evolution of Hercules in Pop Culture

  • VH1.com
This weekend marks Hercules’ return to the big screen. A staple in the hero canon, the half man, and half god has slayed lions, bedded mortal women, and even hung out with the Three Stooges. Over the past seven decades, the hero has transformed from an Italian Stallion of the 1950s to the Blockbuster Beefcake we see today thanks to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kellan Lutz taking on the title role. With the former’s film (Hercules directed by Brett Ratner) opening this weekend, we thought it was a good time to look at the evolution of Hercules on the big screen.

’50s: The Italian Stallion

A star of the “sword and scandal” genre, Hercules became a regular fixture in Italian cinema during the 1950s. These historical epics were seen as the country’s answer to successful big-budget Hollywood films, such as Spartacus and The Ten Commandments.

Martin Sixsmith: 'Scared by spin doctors? I've been in war zones'

The former foreign reporter and New Labour insider on his brush with MI6 and being played by Steve Coogan

Martin Sixsmith is already well known as a BBC foreign correspondent (Moscow, Washington, Warsaw), but the film Philomena, may make him very famous. The film is based on his 2009 book and stars Steve Coogan as "Martin Sixsmith" and Judi Dench as Philomena Lee, the woman whose son (taken as a baby by nuns in 1950s Ireland) he helped search for. Sixsmith (the real one) has also been a communications director for New Labour – until he was forcibly "resigned" in 2002 – as well as an adviser on the TV series The Thick of It.

What do you think of how you are portrayed in the film?

It's tricky for me to give an objective judgment, but I think the character traits are exaggerated for dramatic effort. So in the beginning of the movie,

‘L.A. Complex’ Finale: Cassie Steele Talks Abby’s Life-Changing Decision

Cassie weighs in: Is Abby gone for good? (Stop reading if you haven't watched the second season finale of 'The L.A. Complex!') When we first met Abby (Cassie Steele) on The L.A. Complex, she was a starry-eyed girl ditching her Canadian boyfriend for the lights and promises of Los Angeles. But the second season finale found Abby coming full circle, choosing to leave L.A. behind for a new life in Germany with husband Gray (Steve Byers). Cassie spoke to HollywoodLife.com about Abby's departure and the prospects of a third season for the fan-favorite drama. That finale was nuts. What was your initial reaction to it? "Even when [the cast] read the scripts, we were floored. But I do like that everything's really flexible. Every character still has a lot of options, which is great, because so many things can happen." And how did you feel about Abby choosing Gray over L.

Alphas Ep. 2.3, “Alpha Dogs”: Bill takes charge and enters the arena

Alphas Review, Season 2, Episode 3, “Alpha Dogs

Written by Nick Copus

Directed by Eric Tuchman

Airs Mondays at 10pm (Et) on SyFy

One of the consistent surprises about Alphas is the way it wades into conventional plots but sidesteps a predictable outcome. This week, SyFy’s promos had teased a Fight Club-like underground fighting ring that looked very similar to other shows. The first-season Sanctuary episode “Warriors” also showed individuals with extraordinary abilities battling in front of roaring crowds. The surprise with “Alpha Dogs” is that it doesn’t spend that much time in the arena. Bill gets his chance to battle some tough foes, but it plays out much differently than the anticipated formula. The fights are just one part of an episode that delves into Stanton Parrish’s background, brings a new living situation for Gary, and adds a possible love interest for Rachel. It’s an engaging

An extended TV spot for Total Recall

Ahead of its impending release, Columbia Pictures has debuted a new extended international TV spot for director Len Wiseman's (Underworld, Die Hard 4.0) sci-fi action remake Total Recall, which you can view below courtesy of Empire.

Colin Farrell (Fright Night) leads the cast as Douglas Quaid, a lowly-factory worker who looks to escape the monotony of his day-to-day life by paying a visit to Rekall - a company that offers to turn your dreams into a reality by implanting memories. However, when the procedure goes wrong, the lines between fantasy and reality become blurred and Quaid finds himself a hunted man.

Joining Farrell in the $138m production are Underworld veterans Kate Beckinsale and Bill Nighy, along with Jessica Biel (The A-Team), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), John Cho (Star Trek), Ethan Hawke (Training Day), Bokeem Woodbine (Devil) and Steve Byers (Immortals).
