Lily Collins Set For Evil Dead Remake

Lily CollinsLily Collins is set to star in the Evil Dead remake. The Mirror Mirror star - daughter of singer Phil Collins - is being lined up to take on the role of Mia, who is one of the five friends who decide to take an ill-advised trip to a remote cabin in the woods.

Just like the original film, the group of pals discover a dusty tomb known as The Necronomicon, from which reading a passage out loud results in chaos with the release of flesh-possessing demons. Lily's character has recently suffered a drug overdose and is looking forward to a weekend of detox at the cabin. So when she starts claiming to have been attacked by the trees outside, her friends just assume it's some sort of post-traumatic paranoia.

The remake of the 1981 film will be directed by Fede Alvarez from a script co-written with Rodo Sayagues and Diablo Cody, Bloody Disgusting reports. It is due for release in April 2013.
