Lily Collins Cast In The Evil Dead Remake

Federico Alvarez’s Evil Dead remake has begun its first bit of casting and Bloody-Disgusting received the first word. According to the site, Lily Collins (Priest) is currently in final negotiations to star in the flick as the character Mia.

“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. 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!”

Evil Dead is slated to begin filming this March in New Zealand with a release date scheduled for April 12, 2013 via Film District.
