Very soon, filming will commence on The Evil Dead, Fede Alvarez’s remake of the Sam Raimi film starring Bruce Campbell. Recently, the redo – which saw Diablo Cody coming in to make a few revisions to the script – faced a bit of a casting switcheroo.
Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror, Priest) dropped out and Jane Levy (pictured) stepped in.
The Insider spoke with the latter about the film and, after the jump, you’ll find out what she had to say about the project and a brief, spoilery bit from Bruce Campbell himself.
Levy told The Insider:
The outlet also spoke to Campbell, who serves as a producer on the film. And while he didn’t necessarily say anything new, he did confirm the evil trees will be back this time and “They’re not terribly well-behaved this time either,” he said.
The Evil Dead will shoot in New Zealand for Sony. Lou Taylor Pucci co-stars. Expect more casting news soon.
