Collins In Talks For Evil Dead Remake

Like a demon tearing through a forest, the remake of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead has suddenly picked up pace in the last few months and is now racing to our screens. And according to the gang at Bloody Disgusting, one of the main elements could soon be in place, with Lily Collins in final talks to play Mia, the leading lady.

While we doubt Collins will be channelling Bruce Campbell’s style, it sounds like Mia is the new Ash in the story, one of a group of friends who head to a remote cabin where they unleash evil forces from the Book of the Dead. One by one, they’re possessed...

This time around, there’s also a subplot that finds Mia on the trip to detox after a battle with drugs - which factors into people not believing her when she tries to get some outside help.

With Raimi’s Ghost House team overseeing things, Fede Alvarez is directing the new movie, working from a script he wrote with Rodo Sayagues, which has also been through the polishing hands of Diablo Cody.

The film is looking to start shooting this March in New Zealand. Collins, meanwhile, we be seen this year in Tarsem Singh’s take on the Snow White story Mirror Mirror. That one will arrive on March 16.

Please let this just be a horrible and dispicable rumour! This has got to be possibly the worst idea for a remake ever! In fact why the hell are they remaking this when the original is an absolute classic? PLEASE ABORT THIS HORRIBLE IDEA NOW AND NO MORE POINTLESS REMAKES!!!! More

RE: Collins In Talks For Evil Dead Remake
You can see why they have gone in this direction though....   No one can replace Ash.......no can do what Bruce Campbell did......   So they replaced the problem by not even having the character....makes sense but like you all.....its a dumb idea....for another dumb re-make.....   Why are they doing this when what all Evil Dead fans want is Part 4 which follows on from the ending in which Ash is in the future.......I have been waiting for that since Army Of Darkness i More

RE: Dear God NO
L: Hobbitonlass *waits for Clowny to implode* bet he'll argue that Evil Dead was already remade.................as Evil Dead 2. nyway, as far as Evil Dead is concerned, it only gained notoriety for being banned rather than actually being any good (IMO). Evil Dead 2 however is awesome. More
