Prepare to once again learn that we can't cheat the inevitable--the "inevitable" being a modernized remake of every reasonably successful film--because Ellen Page is going to star in a new version of Flatliners. Original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev is reportedly already signed on to helm the film from a script from Source Code writer Ben Ripley.

The original 1990 film starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, and William Baldwin as medical students performing dangerous secret experiments in death, resurrection, and the afterlife experienced in the interim. The remake will tell a similar story, only now, to modernize things, the characters will constantly mention how, no, they have not yet found time to watch and learn the lessons of this year's The Lazarus Effect.
