A couple of young TV vets are joining the cast of the promising Lionsgate horror thriller Reawakening. Written by Jeremy Slater (Fantastic Four reboot) and Luke Dawson (Shutter), the film stars Mark Duplass and Olivia Wilde and follows a team of research students who discover the secret to bringing subjects back from the dead. Naturally, their actions result in a series of sinister consequences. The Wrap now reports that Community’s Donald Glover and American Horror Story’s Evan Peters have joined the ensemble as part of the research team in question. David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi) is directing, with low-budger horror uber producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, Sinister, Insidious) producing through his Blumhouse banner.
Peters recently landed the role of the mutant Quicksilver in director Bryan Singer’s sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Glover will be seen later this year in the anticipated sex comedy The To-Do List before reporting back to the Community set for what’s likely to be the NBC sitcom’s final season. However, creator Dan Harmon recently agreed to return to Community as showrunner, so the show will undoubtedly go out with a bang.
