You remember Flatliners, the 90’s film about students obsessed with near death experiences? In a slightly unexpected turn of events, it’s getting a reboot, and Ellen Page is in talks to star in the film.
This seems like a pretty odd choice to reboot, as while reboots have been coming out thick and fast lately, they are usually done for classics such as Jurassic Park, Ghostbusters and Mad Max.
So it definitely seems strange that Flatliners has been chosen, given that it wasn’t hugely successful or that well received. The concept was an interesting one, but it was hardly a film for the ages.
But, it looks like Ellen Page is in talks to fill the role originally played by Julia Roberts, so who will take the place of Kevin Bacon and Kiefer Sutherland? The only other details we know are that Niels Arden Oplev, the director of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, is on board with Michael Douglas producing.
