Community and American Horror Story Cast Members Join Lionsgate’s Reawakening
As horror fans know all too well, bringing folks back from the dead rarely has a happy ending, and two familiar faces from popular TV shows are about to learn that first-hand now that they’ve joined Lionsgate’s upcoming Reawakening.
Per The Wrap, “Community” star Donald Glover and “American Horror Story” regular Evan Peters (pictured; also recently cast as Magneto’s mutant son Quicksilver in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past) are joining the previously announced Mark Duplass and Olivia Wilde in the film, which Jason Blum is producing through his Blumhouse banner along with Mosaic Media Group.
Reawakening 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 will oversee the project for the studio.
