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)

UPDATE: Mandate has confirmed that this is really a thing that’s happening. However, the project will be a remake instead of a sequel as originally reported.┬áDiablo Cody is currently doing a rewrite on a script by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues.

It’s been a pretty tumultuous day for not believing Evil Dead 4 would actually happen. First, Dread Central received word that Sam Raimi‘s editor Bob Murawski is in Detroit to start work on a new Evil Dead movie. Which is news that isn’t exactly a confirmation. Then Bruce Campbell took to Twitter to say:

“Believe in the remake, dawg! The project is real. In the works. Cool as hell. Scary as hell.”

Of course it’s scary as hell. They’re working in Detroit. But that still isn’t exactly a confirmation. Then Bloody Disgusting dug up an ancient book that revealed Fede Alvarez (Panic Attack! short) has been hired to direct. So maybe this thing is actually happening. But there are still so many unanswered questions. Who will be cast? Is Bruce Campbell playing the lead? Most importantly, should we give Bruce Campbell a pass for using the term “dawg?”
