Ellen Stars In Flatliners Trailer

Screen Shot 2017-06-14 at 7.53.46 AM

On Tuesday, the lesbian actress debuted the trailer for Flatliners, a remake of the 1990 film starring Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts, Billy Baldwin, Oliver Platt, and Kiefer Sutherland. The 2017 remake features Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, Kiersey Clemons, and James Norton.

For those not familiar with the original’s plot, the story centers around five medical students that devise a pretty creepy and risky experiment to experience what happens after death. Taking turns, the students stop and restart each other’s hearts, with the experiment getting more intense as time goes on. Not only do the students become increasingly more competitive about who can stay dead the longest, but the afterlife also proves to be vengeful. Spoiler alert: dead people are pissed.

Watch the trailer below:

Flatliners comes out on September 29.

YESSSSS. If you’re a fan of Tig’s show One Mississippi like me, you’ll be pleased to hear it’s returning to Amazon in September. The cherry on top? On June 9 Notaro opened up to Deadline about the show’s second season.

On what to expect for season two:

“That’s really been the fun of it: I don’t know where it’s going to go; let’s figure out where this is going to go. I’ve brought in ideas to the writer’s room of where I’d like things to go; everybody has. We follow those storylines, and sometimes we get to a place where they have to scrap it. Those have been sad moments, because I’ve had a couple of storylines that I really was excited to do, and then it didn’t quite make sense with what we were doing with other elements of the show. As time has gone on, and there’s been more distance from that traumatic time that I went through, it’s been so fun to move away from and let go of it more and more, as thankful as I’ve been for all these different outlets to let me express myself in all these different ways.”

On if Tig’s character will be dating:

“Well, there are people that I’m dating [on the show], and checking things out with, and checking out the spark that got started with the Kate character. That’s definitely in Season 2.”

On the possibility for a third season:

“Season 3 would be dreamy. I never know. It’s like going back to the thing I was saying: I don’t know if people really think of me. I don’t ever assume that people are going to love or appreciate what I do. It would be great. I don’t assume that they’re not going to. I just am like, ‘I’m going to do my absolute best at everything I do, and I’m going to put it out with pride, and hope people enjoy it.’ That’s how I feel about Season 2. Maybe people will be like, ‘Wow, you completely lost us here,’ or it’ll be like, ‘Yeah, let’s have Season 3.’ Like I said, I want to do a new comedy special. I have an idea for another book. I have my babies and my wife, and I can’t wait to spend the summer with them. I just feel truly on top of the world, and the luckiest, luckiest person.”

Tig’s wife Stephanie Allynne also shared a pic from the second season’s wrap party:

Eek! I can’t wait for the show’s return.
