Lily Collins Cast in The Evil Dead remake. Fede Alvarez‘s The Evil Dead (2013) has cast Lily Collins in the Sam Raimi remake. It “seems like [Lily] Collins will be playing one of the most prominent characters, probably even the lead role” of Mia. Mia is “one of a handful of friends who retreat to a remote cabin where, as in Sam Raimi’s original film,” evil forces are released to possess them.
We posted a synopsis of the remake here: The Evil Dead (2013): Plot Synopsis for Fede Alvarez Remake.
Lily Collins, touching fingers
Apparently, Lily Collins character “Mia is trying to detox, and that is a big part of the motivation for the kids to head to the cabin.”
On Mia’s past and place in The Evil Dead film (*possible spoilers*):
Mia and David, estranged siblings who have recently lost their mother (Mia’s taking it the hardest being that she’s the one who spent most days at the hospital watching her mother deteriorate) have reunited, along with some old friends and his David’s fiancee, for an intervention at THAT old cabin. It’s here that the near rehabilitated Mia will also toss the last of her drugs down the well and finally go cold turkey.
With Diablo Cody involved, I will give the film the benefit of the doubt. I love Evil Dead 2 so I hope that with Cody and Riami’s involvement, this will be cool.
