Community’s Donald Glover and American Horror Story’s Evan Peters have signed up to star in Reawakening for director David Gelb (a few months about the directorial quartet Radio Silence (V/H/S) were in talks to helm, but they are no longer involved).
The film, based on Luke Dawson’s script, is about a group of students who find a way to bring the dead back to life. As you might expect, they soon discover that there are dire consequences to those actions (these sort of things never go well in the movies, do they?). Donald Glover and Evan Peters will play members of this research team, alongside the previously-attached Mark Duplass and Olivia Wilde.
Jason Blum is producing through his Blumhouse Studios company, with Lionsgate’s Erik Feig and John Sacchi overseeing the project for the studio. (Source: TheWrap)
