“The Vampire Diaries” alum Nina Dobrev is in talks to join Ellen Page in Sony’s “Flatliners” remake, sources confirmed to Variety.

Diego Luna is also on board to star in the film from “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” helmer Niels Arden Oplev

Ben Ripley wrote the screenplay and Laurence Mark will produce with Michael Douglas. Production is expected to start in early July.

The original 1990 thriller followed a group of medical students who experimented with “near death” experiences that involved past tragedies until the dark consequences began to jeopardize their lives.

Luna will most likely portray one of the medical students, according to sources. Sony declined to comment.

Dobrev was last seen in “Final Girls” as well as the Fox comedy “Let’s Be Cops.”

She is currently in production on Paramount’s “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage,” opposite Vin Diesel. Dobrev recently wrapped the indie comedy “Crash Pad,” with Domhnall Gleeson. She is also in “Arrivals” opposite Maisie Williams and Asa Butterfield.

Dobrev is repped by CAA, Lighthouse Management and Media, and lawyers Hanson, Jacobson, Teller. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
