The FLATLINERS remake may be getting a little bite.
VAMPIRE DIARIES star Nina Dobrev is in talks to join Ellen Page and Diego Luna in the Sci-Fi medical thriller, playing Marlo, a Type A overachiever, according to Deadline. Since leaving TVD, the Canadian actress has finished the comedy CRASH PAD with Domhnall Gleeson, Christina Applegate, and Oscar nominee Thomas Haden Church, and xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE, the latest xXx installment with Vin Diesel, Toni Collette, and Samuel L. Jackson as well as appearing in last year’s horror-comedy gem THE FINAL GIRLS.
Based on the 1990 hit starring Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, and Oliver Platt, the remake has snagged Denmark’s Niels Arden Oplev (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO) to direct.
Page, Luna, and Dobrev will play med students experimenting with near-death experiences. With as many times as she died and came back on TVD, Dobrev should have no problem with that!
Fun fact: Dobrev’s full name is Nikolina Constantinova Dobreva.
