EXCLUSIVE: Supermodel Charlotte McKinney, probably best known for last year’s Carl’s Jr. Super Bowl spot that went viral and broke viewing records across the Internet, has been cast in Flatliners. McKinney joins Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, Kiersey Clemens and Kiefer Sutherland in the Sony reboot written by Ben Ripley (Source Code). She will play a nurse in a funny sex scene involving her and a medical student (Norton).
Flatliners, directed by Niels Arden Oplev (the Swedish Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), is being produced by Laurence Mark and Michael Douglas. The latter also produced the original 1990 film on which this one is based.
The original Flatliners cast included Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, Billy Baldwin and Oliver Platt.
Next year, McKinney will be in Baywatch, the Paramount Pictures feature based on another iconic IP of the 1990. She will play Julia in the film directed by Seth Gordon and starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
McKinney’s Super Bowl commercial broke records with 2.5 billion media impressions and 9.5 million YouTube views. Shen then participated in Season 20 of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars and has appeared in Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle and in the feature Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser. She also has been on the covers of GQ Mexico and Galore, as well as fashion campaigns including GUESS.
