The Evil Dead Remake: Lady Lead

Posted by Courtney Ferguson on Thu, Jan 5, 2012 at 1:44 PM

I don't know who this Lily Collins is (oh God, just Googled, she's Phil Collins' kid), but I'm sorry, she is no Bruce Campbell. She's set to play the lead in the new remake of The Evil Dead (produced by Sam Raimi and Campbell). Her character's name's Mia and she's going to the cabin in the woods to detox (sigh). While Ashley J. Williams always had a girlie name, I'm not sure how I feel about this gal taking the lead—she seems a little wispy to be taking on Deadites.

From Bloody Disgusting:

Bloody Disgusting has learned exclusively that Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Priest, Mirror Mirror)... is the female version of Ash, once donned by Bruce Campbell in the original trilogy. Fede Alvarez directs the redo of Sam Raimi's cult classic 1981 The Evil Dead from his own screenplay co-written with Rodo Sayagues. Revisions were done by Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody.

That seems a little misleading, because by all accounts it sounds like the remake is going in a completely different direction than the original as Raimi and Campbell opted to not reproduce the Ash character. But even though she's not playing Mr. McChinnychin, it's nice to see some nice strong eyebrows on this Collins chick.
