Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass Find a ‘Reawakening’ With Lionsgate
Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass are set to star in Lionsgate medical thriller “Reawakening” with Jason Blum producing.
“Jiro Dreams of Suishi” helmer David Gelb will helm with Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater penning the script.
The story follows a team of research students that discovers the secret to bringing subjects back from the dead — however, their actions result in a series of sinister consequences.
Blum will produce through his Blumhouse banner along with Mosaic Media Group. Matt Kaplan and Dawson are exec producing.
Erik Feig, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group’s president of production, and John Sacchi, Lionsgate’s executive VP of production, will oversee the project for the studio.
With a wave of interest in the “Frankenstein” storyline (Fox has one and Lionsgate also has “I, Frankenstein), the pic gives Lionsgate a project with a similar theme but with an original twist.
