Joel Schumacher’s 1990 cult classic science fiction psychological horror film Flatliners was groundbreaking for its time, and starred a very talented young cast, which included Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt.
Sony Pictures are preparing to release their new take on September 29, 2017, directed by Niels Arden Oplev and starring Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemons. The film is produced by Laurence Mark and Michael Douglas, along with Ben Ripley who wrote the screenplay.
Today, Dark Universe bring you the first trailer for their new version of Flatliners, and I hate to say it, but the film looks so awful with horrible dialogue. We do have one good thing to say about it, the poster is very cool. Head on down to check out the footage and artwork.
“Five medical students, hoping to gain insight into the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment. By stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience. As the investigation becomes more and more perilous, they are forced to confront the sins of their pasts, as well as contend with the paranormal consequences of trespassing to the other side.”
Last Year, Dark Universe learned via Metro that Kiefer Sutherland joined the cast of the Flatliners remake, reprising his role from 27 years ago:
“I play a professor at the medical university. It is never stated but it will probably be very clearly understood that I’m the same character I was in the original Flatliners but that I have changed my name and I’ve done some things to move on from the experiments that we were doing in the original film.
Sutherland on making the first film:
I loved making the first film and when I was asked if I would be interested in taking part in this, it didn’t take more than a minute to say yes.”
