Sutherland Returns For “Flatliners” Remake

He was the star of the original 1990 Joel Schumacher-directed thriller, now Kiefer Sutherland has signed on to return for the remake of “Flatliners” at Sony Pictures.

Both the original and the new take follows a group of medical students exploring near death on the examination table until the consequences began to jeopardize their lives.

Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemons take on the roles of the students in this outing. Niels Arden Oplev helms the new version from a script by Ben Ripley.

Laurence Mark and Michael Douglas will produce and shooting is slated to begin in Toronto this week.
