Flatliners remake wants Ellen Paige in a lead role…

October 7th, 2015 by James Campbell Comments


Another week, another remake, apparently, is in the works.

This week we have the 1990 cult film, Flatliners, up on the chopping block. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, this remake, directed by Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and written by Ben Ripley (Source Code) wants Ellen Page for one of the lead roles.

For those who are unaware, Flatliners told the story of four medical students experiment on “near death” experiences that involve past tragedies, until the dark consequences begin to jeopardize their lives.

Very little else is known about this remake at this moment in time. Before I say what I’m going to say, as a rule, I don’t mind remakes. As long as there is enough of a gap in time between the films, I don’t mind them. However, remaking a movie that was only released back in 1990 seems to be a little too soon to be considering a remake… At least, that’s how I feel.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
