The Evil Dead remake latest
The cast for the remake of The Evil Dead has been fleshed out a bit, as production is set to begin next month.
The collective willpower of Evil Dead fans hasn’t, clearly, been enough to stop the planned remake going ahead, with production of the new film set to begin next month. The new Evil Dead is set to shoot in New Zealand, with Fede Alvarez directing. Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell are both on board as producers.
In terms of casting, there’s been quite a bit of news. Shiloh Fernandez, Jane Levy and Lou Taylor Pucci had already been added to the cast for the movie. And now, The Hollywood Reporter says that Jessica Lucas is set to board the project, too. Lucas is best known to date for her work on Melrose Place. Also signing up is Elizabeth Blackmore.
It looks like it’s full steam ahead, then, with a release date of April 12th 2013 already marked in the calendar. As we hear more on the project, we’ll reluctantly let you know…
