So let’s just cut to the chase. The Flatliners remake we’ve previously reported to be in the making, isn’t a remake. It’s a sequel! The news comes right front the lips of Kiefer Sutherland (star from the original film) who revealed this during a Metro interview.
“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 played Nelson Wright in the 1990 original film opposite Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin, Oliver Platt and Kimberly Scott. Sutherland’s character was that of a medical student who want to see what the afterlife was like, so he allowed himself and and his partners To be killed and resuscitated minutes afterwards.
“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,” Sutherland excitedly continued during his interview.
The Flatliners sequel will star James Norton, Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, Ellen Page and Kiersey Clemons and is being directed by Niels Arden Oplev.
Flatliners comes out August 18th, 2017.
