“The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” helmer Niels Arden Oplev will direct the movie, which also stars Diego Luna and Nina Dobrev.
Ben Ripley wrote the screenplay and Laurence Mark will produce with Michael Douglas. Production is expected to start in early July.
The original movie followed a group of medical students who experimented with “near death” experiences that involved past tragedies until the dark consequences began to jeopardize their lives.
Clemons will play a young medical student struggling to endure both the rigors of her workload and the overbearing mother with whom she still lives.
I never saw the 1990 original, but the premise sounds intriguing. IMDB has a fuller description of the plot (if it follows closely to the original):
