No Evil Dead for Lily Collins

No Evil Dead for Lily CollinsHere today, gone tomorrow. Such is the case with Lily Collins, who was in talks to play "Mia", the female version of Ash, in the upcoming Evil Dead remake. So what happened? Read on for the details.

According to Variety's Jeff Sneider on Twitter, "Due to date issues, LILY COLLINS will not be able to star in THE EVIL DEAD reboot!" What a shame. She would have looked so friggin' hot all covered in blood and guts. That being said, the hunt for a new star is on.

Fede Alvarez directs the redo of Raimi's cult classic 1981 from his own screenplay co-written with Rodo Sayagues. Revisions were done by Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody. 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.

FilmDistrict's reboot is aiming for release on April 12th, 2013.

More soon!
