Jane Levy to star in Evil Dead remake
Suburgatory star Jane Levy is set to take on the lead role in Fede Alvarez’s remake of The Evil Dead, Deadline reports.
Levy’s character, Mia, is the female equivalent of Bruce Campbell‘s Ash from Sam Raimi‘s original Evil Dead trilogy. Having recovered from a recent drug overdose, she and four friends head to a cabin in the woods where they accidentally unleash evil.
Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) did a pass on the script, originally penned by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues. Raimi’s company Ghost House is producing.
The film is expected to hit cinemas April 2013.
