Lily Collins Inherits Bruce Campbell’s Role in ‘Evil Dead’ Remake

10395175.jpgThe long-developing remake of Evil Dead, Sam Raimi’s cult horror-comedy classic, has found its star, and it isn’t what genre fanatics — or anyone, for that matter — expected. Ash, the character memorably portrayed by Bruce Campbell in the original film, has been rechristened “Mia,” and she will be played by Lily Collins, Bloody-Disgusting reports. Star of the ill-fated Taylor Lautner vehicle Abduction and the Tarsem-ized Snow White hallucination Mirror, Mirror, Collins is in final negotiations to star in an Evil Dead update which focuses 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.” BD adds that “there is a drug subplot” involving Collins’ character, who was foolish enough to kick her habit before all the demonic shenanigans began.
