Screenwriter Ben Ripley [Source Code] has been hired by Sony to pen a remake of Joel Schumacher's supernatural thriller Flatliners. The movie that arrived in 1990 starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin & Oliver Platt as medical students whose experiments with death & revival took an unexpected turn & earned $61.5 million at the domestic box office. To be honest I think this could probably work out pretty well as a remake, although Ripley did draft Species III & Species: The Awakening, the screenwriter did do a great job with Source code & Flatliner's plot is pretty strong with plenty of room for expansion. Larry Mark is producing & Further Films is expected to be involved in some producorial capacity. David Blackman is overseeing the film for Mark's company Laurence Mark Productions.
