The lead has been cast in the remake of Sam Raimi‘s The Evil Dead and it’s the last person you’d expect. Mirror, Mirror and Abduction star Lily Collins is in talks for the role of Mia, who is essentially the new Ash. Mia is a troubled young woman who is brought to the doomed cabin by her brother and his friends for an intervention. Imagine going through that embarrassment but also have a forest of demonic rape trees try to get all handsy with you. Or branchy. Or whatever.
The project is being produced by Raimi with Panic Attack’s Fede Alvarez directing from the screenplay by he and Rodo Sayagues. Diablo Cody came in to do punch up work on the script. These demons are going to have the best one-liners. (Bloody Disgusting)
