Remakes. Oh how I loathe them. But I still go and see them because, hey, what eles is there really to see? But I have to say, I’m looking forward to seeing what they’re going to do with The Evil Dead. And Jane Levy talks opening about it so read on to see what she has to say….
Cameras have begun rolling on The Evil Dead remake under the direction of Fede Alvarez. Jane Levy, Lou Taylor Pucci, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore star and, recently, Levy spoke to The Marin Independent Journal about her turn in the film.
“For a while, whenever I was asked what my dream role would be, my answer was always to play a killer or a psychopath. I get to do that in this movie, although I’ll be possessed while I destroy my victims. So basically, it’s a perfect job…
I really wanted to work on “Evil Dead” because of how different it is from “Suburgatory.” I guess that’s my main goal in this industry, to work on different stuff and to play a wide range of characters. That process of creating a new person is so fun for me. I love the initial makeup/hair tests before the start of a new job; I’m always campaigning for a new hair color or length, anything to look as different as possible.
This role also intrigued me because of how much I will learn, mostly technical stuff like special effects. That’s fascinating to me. I had to get my body “casted” for this role so they can make me prosthetics. That process entailed getting your whole body covered in green goo, like the stuff they put in your mouth for a tooth casting, and then being papier-mâchéd. It was the coolest thing ever.”
The Evil Dead remake – produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell – will be released through Sony.
