Flatliners, the 1990 drama/thriller about medical students who killed themselves and then brought themselves back, and then had to deal with the demons from their past, is being remade.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Source Code writer Ben Ripley will pen the screenplay for Columbia Pictures. The original was not a particularly good movie, but it holds a lot of charm to people because of the cast. It starred up and coming actors Keifer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, and Julia Roberts. Hell, it even had a Baldwin.
I cannot tell you how many times Flatliners comes up when playing ‘Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon‘.
