The Cheesesteak has a rich theatrical history — from the original “Rocky” through the recent “Creed” — the cheesesteak made important cameos.  So when Hollywood was looking for an important Philly venue to launch the sequel to the 1990’s movie “Flatliners,” they came to the experts at the Philly Cheesesteak and Food Fest and Devault Foods.

The challenge presented to Devault Foods was to create a sandwich that represented the movie. As the oldest continuously operating Philly-style steak manufacturer in the county and with a wide array of Philly-style meats to choose from, Executive Chef, Ethan Posilkin used his expertise to create his own Hollywood magic.

“The Flatliners” sequel brings back Dr. Nelson Wright (Keifer Sutherland) with a new set of students determined to learn what lies beyond death. Several experiments result in heart-stopping experiences. What the students don’t immediately realize is that when in the beyond their brains re-wire so their memories, experiences and reactions are forever altered. Chef Ethan created not one but TWO unique sandwiches which reflect the experience of being deconstructed and rewired.

It was an interesting challenge to deconstruct an iconic Cheesesteak sandwich and develop something new that respects its origins while bringing forward different textures and flavors.
