If anyone can do a young Julia Roberts justice, we have confidence in Ellen Page. The talented actress is taking on a sequel of one of Roberts’ early films.
If you haven’t seen the 1990 sci-fi thriller classic, Flatliners, starring Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, and Kevin Bacon, it should be required viewing. The now-A-listers played young medical students who experiment with near death experiences for an ultimate high. But their out-of-body experiences come with psychological consequences, past tragedies that return to haunt them.
The sequel follows a new batch of students who discover the same afterlife experience. Page leads a talented young cast including Nina Dobrev, Diego Luna, and Kiersey Clemons. Sutherland also makes an appearance, reviving his role from the original movie.
Flatliners premieres September 29. Watch the trailer below:
