In news that will shock no-one, another 90s movie is getting the Hollywood remake treatment: this time it's the much-loved Flatliners.

The 1990 original starred Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin and Kiefer Sutherland and was directed by Joel Schumacher, so the new school have some big shoes to fill.

Fortunately the first names announced look solid, with Ben Ripley (Source Code) slated to write the screenplay and Niels Arden Oplev, who directed the original movie version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo set to perform the same role on this film.

For those who don't remember, and shame on you, the film revolved around a group of medical students who investigated what would happen if they died for a brief amount of time. Understandably, things went awry.

The tagline on the original was "some lines shouldn't be crossed" - fans will be hoping this isn't one of them.

What do you think about the remake?
