» Sony’s ‘Flatliners’ Isn’t a Remake, It’s a Sequel

by Jonathan Barkan, published on July 29, 2016 - 3:50 PM


We’ve been reporting that Sony’s upcoming take on Flatliners was a remake, a brand new take on the original 1990 film. However, it turns out that this isn’t the case as word comes directly from Kiefer Sutherland, who starred in the original, that the film is, in fact, a sequel.

“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 tells Metro.

Sutherland played Nelson Wright in the original film, a medical student who wanted to see what the afterlife held by allowing himself, and his partners, to be killed only to be 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 tells the site.

The 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.
