Lily Collins joins the Evil Dead remake that no one wants
Although the people involved with the old EVIL DEAD (most notably, Bruce Campbell) are on board and actually producing the remake of the 1981 cult classic, I just can’t get on board with it. I’m not really even that big of a fan of the original, I’m just so jaded with lazy remakes that any remake is going to get negativity from me. I’m disappointed in the decision for Lily Collins to hop on board this remake since I thought she was heading in the right direction. Granted, ABDUCTION was unwatchable and MIRROR MIRROR doesn’t look great, but at least those are headlining roles and give her decent exposure.
Collins is actually the first actress/person to join the remake. She’ll play Mia, a drug addict looking to detox at the abandoned cabin. Fede Alvarez is directing the film from a script he wrote with Rodo Sayagues. Diablo Cody also did some re-writes on the script. The film is due to hit theaters on April 13th, 2013.
