Olivia Wilde is set to star in 'Reawakening'.

The 'Incredible Burt Wonderstone' actress has signed on for a lead role in the David Gelb-directed horror film along with 'The Mindy Project' actor Mark Duplass, reports Variety.

The film centres on a group of medical students who discover how to bring dead patients back from the grave, but their actions lead to dire consequences.

The script was written by Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater, while Jason Blum will produce alongside Matt Kaplan and Dawson.

The medical-themed horror flick is being produced and distributed by Lionsgate.

Wilde recently starred alongside Steve Carrell and Steve Buscemi in box office flop 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone', while her next movie is Ron Howard's highly anticipated 'Rush' co-starring Chris Hemsworth. The biographical film tells the story of the 1976 Formula 1 season, particularly the heated rivalry between racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

The actress has also wrapped filming on Joe Swanberg's 'Drinking Buddies', a comedy co-starring Anna Kendrick.

Director David Gelb is best known for his 2011 documentary 'Jiro Dreams of Sushi'.
