Lily Collins ditches the new Evil Dead

01.24.2012

If only Llly Collins had actually said, "f*ck this remake" and dropped it. Instead, the actress can't take on the role of female Ash due to scheduling issues.

Variety's Jeff Sneider shared this with the masses on Twitter:

"Again, in case you missed it, LILY COLLINS is OUT of THE EVIL DEAD reboot due to a scheduling issue. Agents, start your engines..."

Which actress will step in now? Or maybe they will decide to push it back further (April 12, 2013) and do a rewrite with a male lead? Yeah, I suppose that's wishful thinking. Any suggestions for the role?

The film will be directed by Fede Alvarez with a script from Diablo Cody. There's also a new take on the original: "Mia and David, estranged siblings who have recently lost their mother (Mia’s taking it the hardest being that she’s the one who spent most days at the hospital watching her mother deteriorate) have reunited, along with some old friends and his David’s fiancee, for an intervention at THAT old cabin. It’s here that the near rehabilitated Mia will also toss the last of her drugs down the well and finally go cold turkey."

Extra Tidbit: Eh. Too bad. Her dad could have done a remake of "In the Air Tonight" for the soundtrack.

They just need to re-release the original movies in theaters. Screw this remake/reboot crap. They'd make a good amount of money if they brought them back. Hell, why do you think they keep re-releasing new DVD/Blu-ray editions? It's because us fanboys can't help but to keep buying into it.

Hey, Diablo Cody...

No, don't do a female lead...it's not clever.
-Siblings...not clever.
-Drugs and intervention...not clever.
-Remaking this film...not clever.

I guess I'll just have to keep looking to the comic series for the continuing adventures of Ash.

She does realize...

That we've seen the Mirror Mirror trailer right? Even an Evil Dead Reboot could help her career get back on track after seeing that trailer.

REBOOT this is not.

REMAKE yes... REBOOT? no, a reboot simply means they plan on making more of them and rebooting the franchise this will not happen... Friday the 13th offered up the BEST chance of a sequel to a remake and it did NOT happen (the only new horror remake that I can think of that actually has a sequel is the Rob zombie Halloween II so that is (as painful as it sounds) an actual reboot. Evil Dead will be a RE-MAKE and nothing more with ever come of it.... kinda like DRAG ME TO HELL. LOL

Just for those who haven't been keeping up

There is no "female Ash". It's just that the lead character in this version will BE a female.
Which by me is fine, if you're going to re-make the fucking Evil Dead, you may as well go as far away from the original in everything but cabin/book/demons. With any luck we'll get a "Dawn of the Dead" style, completely different movie from it.

I hope they rewrite it for a male lead. Bruce Campbell as the lead, and Sam Raimi as director. Thats where the money for this project should've gone to begin with.
