WWW.COLLIDER.COM: Fede Alvarez‘ remake of Sam Raimi‘s The Evil Dead has lost its star. While things looked to be moving quickly, Variety’s Jeff Sneider now reports that Lily Collins has had to withdraw from the project due to scheduling issues. The only other project on her slate (that we know of) is the adaptation of The Mortal Instruments, so it’s possible that the shooting schedule for that film is the culprit. Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell are all producing the update based on Raimi’s 1981 horror film, and they hand-selected Alvarez to direct. Plot details are still scarce at this point, but Diablo Cody (who did some rewrite work on the script) described the project as “unbelievably violent.”
The lead in the remake will undoubtedly be a coveted role, so it’ll be interesting to see who steps in to replace Collins. The Abduction actress will next be seen in Tarsem Singh’s Snow White pic Mirror Mirror. The Evil Dead is slated for April 12th, 2013.
Looking as stunning as always in a Chanel gown combined with pretty Chanel Fine Jewelry, Lily attended yesterday’s (January 21) Chanel Numéros Privés Opening Night Party and Dinner.

WWW.CINEMABLEND.COM: Lily Collins is having a massive 2012. She’s set to play Snow White opposite Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer in Mirror Mirror. And now Bloody Digusting says she’s the first name added to the cast of Fede Alvarez’s The Evil Dead reboot.
The site says Collins, who most know for playing Sandra Bullock’s daughter in The Blind Side, will play Mia, one of the five friends stranded in a cabin in the woods who come across the Book of the Dead. One by one, each character is possessed by an evil force until only one survivor is left standing. Mia, according to the site, is recovering with sobriety after a recent drug overdose, which explains why the other four campers don’t believe her claims that strange things are attacking her in the woods.
Bloody says the characters in Rodo Sayagues and Diablo Cody’s screenplay are David, Natalie, Eric, Olivia, and Mia. (No Ash? WTF?!) The site says David is a mechanic. He’s engaged to Natalie, and the crew heads to the isolated cabin to help Mia detox. They speculate that Eric is the one who unleashes the centuries-old evil.
This is not to be confused with Drew Goddard’s anticipated The Cabin In the Woods, which has a similar plot but apparently goes in very, very different directions. As for Evil, I’m still getting used to the idea that they’re going to try and improve on Sam Raimi’s horror classic in the first place. But if they’re going to give it a whirl, they better commit to the trilogy, because we all know that Evil Dead 2 is the true masterpiece, and Army of Darkness could use a retouch. Oh, and more Bruce Campbell.
