Diego Luna (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Y Tu Mama Tambien”) is in talks to star alongside Ellen Page in the remake of the 1990 near-death thriller “Flatliners” at Sony Pictures.
The story follows a group of medical students who experiment with ‘near death’ experiences that involve past tragedies, until the dark consequences begin to jeopardize their lives.
Luna will likely portray one of the medical students. Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Billy Baldwin and Oliver Platt all starred in the original.
Niels Arden Oplev, the Swedish “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” helmer, will direct from a script by Ben Ripley. Laurence Mark and Michael Douglas will produce with filming to begin in early July.
