HOLLYWOOD – Flatliners remake will get a sequel – Flatliners 2 – despite atrocious reviews.
Michael Douglas announced Flatliners 2. The remake of the 1991 Joel Schumacher thriller about medical students exploring death died at the box office and with the critics. The follow up will take the first film’s fate as its inspiration. A source close to the production told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
It’s going to be really meta. We’re going to have a bunch of film students who in order to explore what is wrong with Hollywood start to experiment with how to remake Flatliners, a remake starring Ellen Page of a relatively uninteresting Kiether Sutherland thriller. The film is death itself. Way too long and uninteresting with no right to exist. I mean no one really liked the 1991 version either. So they go in deep, but before you know it they’re going in deeper trying to remake Herbie Reloaded and Total Recall again.
Flatliners 2 will be released in 2019.
