Over the summer we told you about an upcoming zombie flick called Reawakening, which was building up a pretty respectable cast. Though we hadn't heard anything in the past couple of months, it has returned to our radar today with a brand new name as well as a release date.
As reported by Variety, Reawakening has title morphed into Lazarus, and Lionsgate has set a U.S. theatrical date of January 30th, 2015. Refresh your memory with all the undead details below!
The cast includes Olivia Wilde (pictured), Sarah Bolger, Mark Duplass, Donald Glover, and "American Horror Story" regular Evan Peters.
Jason Blum is producing through his Blumhouse banner along with Mosaic Media Group.
Lazarus follows a team of research students who discover the secret to bringing subjects back from the dead. However, their actions result in a series of sinister consequences. Glover and Peters will play members of the team along with Duplass and Wilde.
David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi) is directing from a script written by Jeremy Slater (Fantastic Four) and Luke Dawson (Shutter), who is executive producing with Matt Kaplan. Lionsgate execs Erik Feig and John Sacchi are overseeing the project for the studio.
