Columbia Pictures is reviving the 1990 sci-fi classic Flatliners with a new remake. The studio has hired Source Code screenwriter Ben Ripley to tackle the writing duties.
The original Flatliners, which starred Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, and Kevin Bacon, focused on a group of medical students who conduct experiments with near-death experiences to see if there is life after death. The group members eventually start re-living traumatic childhood experiences.
No production schedule was released for this new Flatliners remake. Laurence Mark, who produced the original Flatliners, is on board to produce this new remake.
