Columbia Pictures is developing a remake of "Flatliners," the 1990 film starring Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt. Directed by Joel Schumacher, the movie earned $61.5 million at the domestic box office.
In the original film, Sutherland played ambitious, charismatic medical student Nelson, who persuades classmates to take part in a reckless experiment. To see if there is life after death, they will kill themselves: temporarily shut down ("flatline") their heart and brain functions to briefly experience clinical death. After Sutherland survives the first experiment, the others flatline for increasingly longer intervals. - But their horror begins when they realize that although they've come back alive... they haven't come back alone.
