“Rogue One” star Diego Luna is in talks to star with Ellen Page in Sony’s remake of “Flatliners,” sources confirm to Variety.
“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” helmer Niels Arden Oplev will direct the film from a script by Ben Ripley. Laurence Mark will produce with Michael Douglas. Production is expected to start in early July.
The original 1990 thriller follows a group of medical students who experiment with “near death” experiences that involve past tragedies until the dark consequences begin to jeopardize their lives.
Luna will most likely portray one of the medical students, according to sources. Sony declined to comment.
