That didnâ€™t take too long.
Just a week or so after losing Lily Collins, Deadline reports that the upcoming remake/reboot of the Evil Dead franchise regained a leading lady, this time in the form of Suburgatory star Jane Levy.
The new Evil Dead will be helmed by Fede Alvarez, who also wrote the filmâ€™s script which is currently getting the once over from current â€˜itâ€™ scribe Diablo Cody, and will find Levy as Mia, â€œa character that corresponds to Ash,â€ the original series protagonist.
According to the outlet, the film will follow â€œfive young people who head to a remote cabin where evil awaits. Recovering from a recent overdose, Mia is particularly vulnerable.â€ Original director Sam Raimi is aboard as producer with his shingle Ghost House Pictures, so hopes are insanely high for this project.
Personally, while Iâ€™m not hugely sold on a remake, I think that a new take on this story could be really great, particularly with the creative team in place here. Iâ€™m a huge fan of Cody as a writer, particularly following Young Adult, so hopefully this can continue that trend.
