‘Flatliners’ Legacy Cameo Revealed In New TV Spot

Flatliners cameo

Joel Schumacher’s 1990 sci-fi horror movie Flatliners is undoubtedly a goofy film, but it’s also a stylishly directed, visually striking piece of work from a filmmaker that’s often unfairly derided for his later superhero work (hey, Batman Forever is pretty good!). It also has a killer cast that included then-up-and-comers like Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin, and Oliver Platt, and now we know that one of those actors will also appear in the upcoming remake/sequel, too. And based on that selection of names, the culprit may not be who you think.

Join me below to watch a new TV spot that gives away the Flatliners cameo, and while you’re there, stick around for a full trailer for the new version.

From producer Michael Douglas comes a remake of Flatliners. Based on Joel Schumacher‘s 1990 film, the premise appears to be more or less the same with some modern touches. It’s a fine movie that doesn’t quite live up to its premise, so unlike a lot of cases, a remake here makes sense. So far, based on the marketing, it doesn’t look like Niels Arden Oplev‘s (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) movie is bringing a whole lot new to the table – except for a strong cast.

Below, watch the new Flatliners trailer.

Flatliners Remake Trailer

If Netflix’s The Discovery wasn’t quite what you were hoping for in a movie that explores what happens after we die, maybe the remake of the 1990 thriller Flatliners will make up for it.

Ellen Page (Juno), Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Nina Dobrev (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), James Norton (Happy Valley) and Kiersey Clemons (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) star in the remake of Joel Schumacher’s film, taking on the roles originated by Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kevin Bacon. They are five medical students who learn about what lies beyond mortality when they stop each others’ heart for a few minutes at a time before immediately resuscitate them. What starts as an almost indescribable thrill that seems to have a positive impact on their brain slowly turns into a nightmare as they are each haunted by something tragic from their past.

jumanji release date

Sony is reorganizing its release calendar, and that means a few big titles are getting shifted around. First off, The Dark Tower has been postponed from February 2017 to summer 2017, as we reported earlier today… and it’s taking over Jumanji‘s slot, which means Jumanji is now getting pushed to Christmas 2017.

Meanwhile, Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver has gone from being a spring movie to being a summer movie, and The Equalizer 2 — the first sequel of Denzel Washington’s entire career — is getting delayed one year to fall 2018. Get full details on the Jumanji release date and more below.  Read More »

Flatliners Sequel

Just a few weeks ago, the developing Flatliners remake gained an interesting name with Kiefer Sutherland joining the cast. What’s interesting about the addition of Sutherland to the cast is that he starred in the original 1990 cult favorite thriller, and his involvement in the new take on the story opened up the possibility of this being more of a sequel instead of a true remake. Now we seem to have confirmation of as much from Kiefer Sutherland himself. Find out what the actor had to say about the Flatliners sequel after the jump. Read More »

Is there anyone out there demanding a Flatliners remake? Probably not. The original 1990 film is fine, a perfectly adequate supernatural thriller that goes down easy enough and then vanishes from the brain without leaving a last impression. In a weird way, this actually makes it the ideal movie for the remake treatment – there is no reason to film new versions of beloved, classic movies when there are plenty of great concepts attached to forgettable movies floating around, awaiting resurrection.

The last we heard from Flatliners, the delightful Ellen Page was attached to lead the film. Now, she has her first co-star in the form of Diego Luna, the talented Mexican actor known for his work in films like Milk, Elysium, The Terminal, and Y Tu Mamá También. Oh yeah, he’s also in some upcoming movie called Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Ellen Page Flatliners remake

Ellen Page may be this generation’s Julia Roberts. The Freeheld star could lead a remake of Roberts’ 1990 sci-fi thriller Flatliners, about a group of medical students who experiment with near-death experiences. (Because what could possibly go wrong?) Niels Arden Oplev, of the Swedish The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo adaptation, is directing.
