First of all, I'd just like to point out that there was already, ostensibly, a remake of Flatliners. But okay, they're still doing another one anyway! LALALALALALA CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER THE SOUND OF THIS COLD HARD CASH. The new film stars Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, Kiersey Clemens and now original cast member Kiefer Sutherland, who's is in talks for the role of a “seasoned doctor,” according to Deadline.
Hmmm…”seasoned doctor”…could he possibly be playing Nelson Wright, the same character he portrayed in the original movie? Medical students do tend to pursue careers in the medical field, just saying!
The original Flatliners was directed by Joel Schumacher and starred Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Oliver Platt, William Baldwin and Kevin Bacon as medical school students who experiment with near death experiences. The film grossed over $60 million in North America.
