  • Flatliners
  • added a synopsis Aug. 27, 2011
  • A group of medical students subject themselves to near-death experiences in order to see if anything lies beyond the big sleep. The members of the group are then revisited by physical manifestations of childhood sins, but they are not sure if what they are facing is real or hallucination.
  • Ben Ripley, who most recently penned Source Code, has been signed to a development deal with Sony to write a contemporary reimagining of Flatliners, the 1990 Joel Schumacher drama about medical students who dabble too far into near-death experiments that starred then-emerging actors like Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and William Baldwin, as well as Kevin Bacon.
