Raimi Drags Three More To Hell
Including Cloverfield's Jessica Lucas

Three more actors have joined the cast of Sam Raimi’s eagerly-awaited return to horror, Drag Me To Hell, which starts filming on Monday in LA.

The film’s leads, Justin Long and Alison Lohman (who replaced Ellen Page) have been on board for a while, but today Sam The Man added Cloverfield’s Jessica Lucas, cracking character actor David Paymer and Lorna Raver in the tale of a vengeful supernatural curse.

Lucas will play the best friend of Lohman’s Stephanie, who is unwittingly laid low by said curse. The aptly-named Raver will play Mrs. Ganush, an Eastern European woman who unleashes the curse after she’s humiliated, while Paymer will play Lohman’s bank manager boss.

OK, so it’s not Evil Dead IV, but any chance to see Raimi return to his horror roots must be celebrated. Now, what price of a Bruce Campbell cameo?

L: umer_ejaz what's with people's name being double highlighted in green and words? seems empire are now copying ingsoon.netote] It's the Intellitext site that handles that, both sites use it, IIRC.  If you have FireFox and the NoScript add-on, you can disable them by just preventing the Intellitext Web site from running javascript.
