Deadline has reported actress Jane Levy is in negotiations for the lead actress role in the horror â€œEvil Deadâ€ remake. The actress would join Shiloh Fernandez (â€œRed Riding Hoodâ€) who signed on as the male lead yesterday.
Levy would replace Collins, who had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. She would play Mia, the recovering drug addict and sister to the main character.
The young actress is best known as a star in the ABCâ€™s television show â€œSuburgatory,â€ and stars in the upcoming Josh Schwartz-directed comedy â€œFun Size.â€
The remake story is about a group of young friends escape to a cabin in the woods to help out a recovering drug addict. However, one of the friends accidently unleashed demons from the Necronomicon.
â€œEvil Deadâ€ will begin production in March with a release date on April 12th next year.
In addition, director Fede Alvarez posted a set photo from his Twitter account. Not much to see, but just creepy trees in a forest.
