Lily Collins cast in EVIL DEAD remake
We all know that there is an EVIL DEAD remake currently well on its way. But this time the lead character won’t be male. Lily Collins has been cast to play Mia, the main person of interest for us to cheer for in the new version of the film.
In this version, the story centers on five friends (David, Natalie, Eric, Olivia, and Mia) holed up at a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead with a demonic force unleashed possessing each until only one is left to fight for survival. As we also exclusively reported, there is a drug subplot.
As previously explained, David is a mechanic and is engaged to Natalie. Mia is the friend who is heading to the cabin to detox; Olivia is her best friend/nurse. Eric, presumably, is the kid who unleashes the demons.
After a recent overdose, Mia struggles with her new-found sobriety. She begins acting insane, so it comes as no surprise that nobody believes her crazy claims of coyote dogs and trees attacking her!
Lily Collins was in such films as the BLIND SIDE, MIRROR MIRROR as well as PRIEST. I’ve haven’t seen to much of her work but hopefully she does Campbell’s classic Ash justice. Fede Alvarez directs the redo of Sam Raimi’s cult classic 1981 The Evil Dead from his own screenplay co-written with Rodo Sayagues. Revisions were done by Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody.
