Lily Collins is in early discussions for the lead role in FilmDistrict’s remake of Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead. Collins’ character Mia would be the main character that corresponds to Ash, who was played by Bruce Campbell in the original 1981 movie, according to the Bloody Disgusting blog. Mia is one of five young people who head to the remote cabin where evil awaits. Recovering from a recent overdose, Mia is particularly vulnerable. Collins plays Snow White in the upcoming Mirror Mirror directed by Tarsem Singh and previously was seen in The Blind Side and Priest. Raimi, Campbell and Rob Tapert are producing with Ghost House Pictures and Mandate Pictures. Fede Alvarez is directing and co-wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues. Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) is revising the latest draft. The movie is targeted to open April 12, 2013.
