Lily Collins ditches the new Evil Dead

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.
