The Evil Dead Remake Finds its Leading Lady - Jane Levy





The Evil Dead Remake Finds its Leading Lady - Jane LevyWhen we say more soon, we mean more soon! Just minutes after we did our last news story on The Evil Dead remake, news has come in that the powers-that-be have found their female Ash! Read on for the skinny!

According to Deadline, Jane Levy is in talks to play the lead in the remake of Evil Dead that Fede Alvarez will direct shortly. She replaces Lily Collins, who exited the film recently. Levy is the star of the ABC series "Suburgatory" and stars in Fun Size, the Josh Schwartz-directed film for Paramount.

In FilmDistrict’s remake of Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead, Levy would play Mia, a character that corresponds to Ash, who was played by Bruce Campbell in the original 1981 movie. Mia is one of five young people who head to the remote cabin where evil awaits. Recovering from a recent overdose, Mia is particularly vulnerable.

Raimi, Campbell and Rob Tapert are producing with Ghost House Pictures. Fede Alvarez is directing and co-wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues. Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) revised the latest draft. The movie is targeted to open April 12, 2013.
