If you love scary movies, then get ready for the Sept. 29, 2017, premiere of "Flatliners" — a sequel to the original 1990 film in which five medical students embark on a dangerous experiment to see if there's really such a thing as life after death. To help satisfy our morbid curiosity, Wonderwall.com took a look at the stars headlining the newest incarnation of the film to find out where we've seen them on-screen before. Keep reading to see which actor starred in the original flick as well as the reboot and more…
Actress and LGBTQ advocate Ellen Page stars as Courtney in the 2017 sci-fi thriller "Flatliners."
You probably remember Ellen Page from her Oscar-nominated performance in "Juno" back in 2007. Ellen played the title character — a newly pregnant teen trying to figure out her future and her relationship with her baby's father, played by Michael Cera (seen here with Ellen in a scene from the movie). Her other major films include "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past," in which Ellen played Kitty Pryde. She also had a role in the sport drama "Whip It" and the psychological thriller "Inception." One thing Ellen is perhaps even more known for is her openness about her sexuality. In 2014, the actress spoke out at a conference in Las Vegas benefiting LGBTQ youth, saying, "I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission… I'm here today because I am gay." In 2016, Ellen starred in a six-episode documentary travel series titled "Gaycation," in which she and co-host Ian Daniel journeyed around the world to learn about LGBT cultures abroad. The show earned Ellen two Primetime Emmy nominations in both 2016 and 2017.
Mexican actor, director and producer Diego Luna stars as Ray in the 2017 horror film "Flatliners."
It's likely that you remember Diego Luna as Cassian Andor (seen here with Felicity Jones) in "Rogue One" — the 2016 "Star Wars" prequel and sequel. Other places you might have spied Diego's handsome face are in Katy Perry's music video for "The One That Got Away" and alongside Will Ferrell in the comedy western "Casa de mi Padre." He also starred in the Academy Award-winning film "Milk" with Sean Penn and was the voice of Manolo in the animated hit "The Book of Life." In 2017, after a series of devastating earthquakes rocked Mexico City, Diego teamed up with fellow Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal to start a relief fund to help rebuild homes, hospitals and schools. Up next for this talented star is "Berlin, I Love You" and a currently untitled Woody Allen project due in theaters in 2018.
Bulgarian-Canadian actress Nina Dobrev plays Marlo in the 2017 sci-fi drama "Flatliners."
Beautiful Nina Dobrev is best known for her work as Elena on "The Vampire Diaries" (seen here with co-stars Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder). Before spending eight years on the show, Nina was a regular on the popular high school series "Degrassi: The Next Generation" from 2006 to 2009. Other places you might have seen Nina include in the 2017 action thriller "xXx: Return of Xander Cage" starring Vin Diesel or perhaps the 2012 romantic drama "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." On Sept. 26, 2017 (three days before "Flatliners" arrives in theaters), Nina's next movie, "Crash Pad" debuts.
Primetime Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award-winning actor Kiefer Sutherland stars in the 2017 thriller "Flatliners" as Dr. Barry Wolfson. He also starred in the original 1990 "Flatliners" movie as Nelson Wright, a medical student who has since changed his name.
While Kiefer Sutherland's most recent claim to fame was his Emmy-winning performance as Jack Bauer on the hit TV drama "24" (seen here), others might recognize him from the current TV thriller "Designated Survivor," which debuts its second season on Sept. 27, 2017. Long before Kiefer became a major TV star, he was a Hollywood film actor starring in movies like "Stand By Me" and "The Lost Boys" in the 1980s.
British actor James Norton stars as Jamie in the 2017 movie "Flatliners," due in theaters Sept. 29, 2017.
While James Norton only began his on-screen career in 2009, he's amassed several impressive credits including as Sidney Chambers on the ITV and PBS crime drama "Grantchester" (seen here). Before that, James had a recurring role on British television's "Happy Valley" and starred on "War & Peace." In 2017, along with his role in "Flatliners," he appeared in the movie "Hampstead" with Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson.
Actress Kiersey Clemons stars as Sophia in the 2017 sci-fi horror flick "Flatliners."
If Kiersey Clemons looks familiar, it's because over the past few years, she's appeared on numerous hit shows like "New Girl" (where she played Winston's love interest, KC), "Transparent" (where she played Tammy's ex step-daughter, Bianca) and "Extant" (as Lucy, an android-human soldier seen here with co-star Pierce Gagnon). She was also cast as Iris West in the DC Comics adventure "Justice League," which is due in theaters Nov. 17, 2017.
Actor Beau Mirchoff plays Brad Mauser in the 2017 film "Flatliners."
Chances are you remember Beau Mirchoff as Matty McKibben from the high school comedy "Awkward," on which he starred alongside Ashley Rickards (seen here) from 2011 to 2016. Before that, Beau had a recurring role as Danny Bolen on the hit series "Desperate Housewives" and from 2007 to 2008, he appeared on the TV drama "Heartland."
Young actress Madison Brydges plays Tessa in the 2017 film "Flatliners."
Newcomer Madison Brydges doesn't have a lot of credits to her name (yet), but you might remember her as the plucky young daughter Jo Tyler in the Hallmark Channel holiday movie "Love You Like Christmas" (seen here). In addition to "Flatliners," Madison has appeared in several short films like "ROPEd" and "Do Disturb." She got her start acting in commercials for Polly Pocket and Nissan.
