Joining Sony’s upcoming Flatliners reboot, which already counts Ellen Page, Diego Luna and Nina Dobrev among its cast, will be supermodel Charlotte Mc Kinney. Deadline reports that McKinney, who is arguably best known for an infamous Carl’s Jr. Super Bowl commercial that went viral, has been added to the film’s ever-expanding casting roster.
The supermodel will play a nurse “in a funny sex scene involving her and a medical student (played by James Norton)”.
The reboot is being directed by Niels Arden Opley (TV’s Mr. Robot) from a screenplay by Source Code scripter Ben Ripley. Original star Kiefer Sutherland is reportedly making a cameo in the film, which is scheduled to start production this summer. Sony Pictures will be releasing the feature in theaters on August 18, 2017.
A remake of Joel Schumacher’s Flatliners has long been discussed but it wasn’t until very recently that the project began to gain steam. Now things are moving full speed ahead.
Flatliners follows a group of medical students who conduct a series of experiments where they intentionally flatline for a short time, only to be resuscitated by their cohorts, moments later. But, predictably, things don’t go as planned and the aspiring physicians get more than they bargained for.
