Ellen Page To Star in Flatliners Remake
90’s classic Flatliners is getting the remake treatment with Juno star Ellen Page in the lead role. The original, which starred Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon, was released in 1990 and revolved around five medical students that attempt to find out what lies beyond death. Flatliners earned a mixed reception, but has developed a cult following since.
Page, 28, is set to play Julia Roberts’ part in the remake, according to Variety, and the rest of the roles have yet to be announced. Niels Arden Oplev, director of the original “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” will helm the remake.
