She may be the spawn of Phil Collins, but Lily Collins isn’t going to let that stand in her way, as she turning into quite the starlet, thanks to landing the lead in the upcoming Snow White tale, Mirror Mirror. Now she’s looking ahead to the future, which could include a bit of The Evil Dead.
Bloody Disgusting reports (since confirmed by THR) reports that she’s currently in talks to star in the long-gestating remake of Sam Raimi’s cult horror classic. She would be Mia, who’s trying to kick drugs, and so goes with a handful of friends to a remote cabin where, as in Raimi’s original film, evil forces are released and cause them everybody more than a spot of bother.
The film has been coming together for some time, with Fede Alvarez, director of the short Panic Attack, set to helm from a script he co-wrote with Rodo Sayagues (there’s since been a Diablo Cody rewrite). The Evil Dead,. which has Raimi as a producer, will his cinemas next year.
