Ellen Page in Talks to Star in ‘Flatliners’ Remake (EXCLUSIVE)

Ellen Page is in talks to star in a reboot of the 1990 sci-fi thriller “Flatliners” for Sony.

Niels Arden Oplev, director of the original Swedish “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” is on board to helm from a screenplay by Ben Ripley. Michael Douglas along with Laurence Mark are producing.

The original, which was toplined by Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland and Kevin Bacon, revolves around a group of medical students who journey into the afterworld to find meaning in their own lives before being resuscitated in the nick of time. As expected, the experiments soon go awry.

Page has been busy promoting her drama “Freeheld,” which opened in limited release last weekend, in which she stars opposite Julianne Moore and Steve Carell. Page also produced the gay rights drama. Her movie “Into the Forest,” co-starring Evan Rachel Wood, also recently premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, where it was acquired by A24.
