New leading lady found for THE EVIL DEAD remake

Today has been rife with Evil Dead news. We lost a leading lady, we got a new cast member, and we now have a brand new leading lady! Read on to find out who the lucky(or unlucky) lady is.

Originally, Lilly Collins was the leading lady but had to depart but no worries folks, everything is groovy, because director Fede Alvarez filled in that empty role with Jane Levy.

The actress will play “Mia,” a young woman trying to kick a drug addiction; her friends take her to a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization.

Playing the taped incantations, the youths unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

  She joins previously announced cast member Shiloh Fernandez.

Fede Alvarez is directing the redo of Sam Raimi’s classic film.  Raimi is on board as producer and so is Bruce Campbell.  Shooting begins soon in New Zealand.
