Find out which of the cast will be returning to the 1990s thriller Flatliners reboot…
But guess who will be coming back to add some extra chills to the hit 90s thriller Flatliners?
Is it Julia Roberts? NOPE! Kevin Bacon? Nah! Oliver Platt? Nada! Stephen Baldwin? Who? It’s Keifer Sutherland. Hell Yeah!
Keifer is the first actor from the original to join up.
Deadline has the scoop on this casting news:
Keifer Sutherland has not yet signed on the dotted line, but his people and the production are close to making a deal. What we find interesting is that the report does say that he will be a “seasoned doctor” in the movie. What’s unclear is the possibility that he could once again be playing Nelson Wright (making the Flatliners remake less of a remake and more of a sequel).
We’ve been hearing stories about Hollywood wanting to bring back Flatliners for quite a long while now, with buzz starting in 2008 about a potential television series based on the movie. It was in 2011 that this feature version remake started moving, getting a script written by Source Code scribe Ben Ripley. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’s Niels Arden Oplev has been sticking with the project since early 2012, and you have to give him a lot of credit. A lot of projects in development this long simply fade away, but the industry knew it wanted more Flatliners, and that’s exactly what it’s getting. According to Deadline, production on the picture is starting later this week in Toronto – and while no release date has been announced, we can expect it to land some time in mid-to-late 2017.
We look forward to this movie…but Joel Schumacher was a genius when he put this film together. From script to actors to the set design. It was flawless!
