Has The Evil Dead remake found its leading lady in Lily Collins?

According to Bloody Disgusting, Fede Alvarez's remake of THE EVIL DEAD has nabbed its first actor: Lily Collins. The site reports that Collins will portray the role of "Mia". BD claims that this role is essentially the new "Ash", although what exactly that means is unclear. (I'm guessing she's the "final girl".)

Collins is an up-and-comer whom you might have seen in the craptastic adaptation of PRIEST last year. She also played Taylor Lautner's girlfriend in ABDUCTION, but she'll soon be on display in her biggest feature yet as Snow White in Tarsem's MIRROR, MIRROR (pictured right), which is due out this spring.

In THE EVIL DEAD, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

Shooting on the film will begin this year in New Zealand. Sony Pictures' THE EVIL DEAD will be released on APRIL 12, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: What do you think of this casting, if indeed it pans out?

Final Girl?

I'm all for powerful female characters and leading ladies - but the "final girl" thing is the norm for horror. Evil Dead (the original) always seemed different to me because we had a male lead, scared shitless but kicking ass. I know it's been said before but why can't we just get Evil Dead 4?

Speaking of tree rape

I'm wondering how Sam Raimi handles the angry apple-throwing trees in his Wizard of Oz flick.

I mean she's not half bad.

She's probably one of the few redeemable parts of that Snow White movie. Let's see how she handles tree rape.

Think we can count out a tree rape. She has yet to any nudity in anything yet. My guess is the mention of the trees attacking her will be just trees whipping and slashing at her.
