We’re big fans of Olivia Wilde (check out our viral Wallpaper collection). While most people know her from her roles in blockbuster movies like TRON: Legacy, Cowboys & Aliens, and In Time, those films haven’t exactly given her much to chew on as an actress. She’s done some solid work in smaller films like Drinking Buddies and People Like Us. One of her newest projects is a movie called The Lazarus Effect. Here’s the official synopsis:
When a team of research students mapping the human brain accidentally kills one of their own, they unwittingly unlock a deadly force by reanimating their colleague. Fighting for their own lives, the team must contain their colleague in the lab before she is unleashed on the world.
It sounds a bit like a twist on the 1990 movie Flatliners, a film that gave a jolt to the careers of Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, and Julia Roberts. The Lazarus Effect has a great cast of its own, including Wilde, Mark Duplass(The League, Safety Not Guaranteed), Sarah Bolger (The Tudors, Once Upon A Time), Evan Peters (X-Men: Days of Future Past, American Horror Story), and Donald Glover (Community).
