New cast member added to THE EVIL DEAD remake

The search is still on for a leading lady to star in The Evil Dead remake. But in the meantime, a new cast member has been added and we have the news for ya right here fiends.

According to Variety, Red Riding Hood star Shiloh Fernandez is venturing back into the dark and scary¬† woods to appear in FilmDistrict and Mandate’s Evil Dead reboot.

Fede Alvarez directs the redo from his own screenplay co-written with Rodo Sayagues. Revisions were done by Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody. In this version the story centers on five friends (David, Natalie, Eric, Olivia, and Mia) holed up at a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead with a demonic force unleashed, possessing each until only one is left to fight for survival.

This is shaping up to be pretty awesome. Hopefully Bruce Campbell makes a cameo as a hick or one of the kids parents. We will see.

FilmDistrict’s reboot is aiming for release on April 12th, 2013.
