‘Flatliners’ Remake is Heading to Theaters Next Summer
With production on the upcoming “Flatliners” remake ramping up, Sony has gone ahead and given the film a juicy release date in the tail end of the summer.
“Flatliners” originally starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Oliver Platt, Kevin Bacon, and William Baldwin as medical students who attempt to learn what lies beyond death. However, their secret experimentations awaken something within that brings them face to face with their sins.
The new “Flatliners” will star Diego Luna, Ellen Page, James Norton, Nina Dobrev, and Kiersey Clemons. It was also recently announced that Kiefer Sutherland would be appearing in the film playing a seasoned doctor. It’s not clear if it’ll be more than a cameo, but it’s still great to see at least one original cast member returning.
Avoiding the increasingly crowded October 2017 calendar, Sony has opted to try their luck in the Summer season. The film is set to release on August 18, 2017. Right now it’s only direct competition is the Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson action-comedy “The Hitman’s Bodyguard”, which comes out on the same day.
Stay tuned for more as we wait to see if this remake is dead on arrival or full of life.
