According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ellen Page is in talks with Sony to star in an upcoming remake of the 1990 film Flatliners, which has The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev set to helm with Source Code writer Ben Ripley writing the screenplay.
The 1990 original, which was directed by Joel Schumacher and starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon, follows a group of medical students who begin to explore the realm of near death experiences, hoping for insights. Each has their heart stopped and is revived. They begin having flashes of walking nightmares from their childhood, reflecting sins they committed or had committed against them. The experiences continue to intensify, and they begin to go deeper into the death experience to find a cure.
