    Lily Collins set for Evil Dead remake

    Lily Collins is set to star in the 'Evil Dead' remake as one of the group of friends who take an ill-advised trip to a remote cabin in the woods.


    Lily Collins is set to star in the 'Evil Dead' remake.

    The 'Mirror Mirror' star – daughter of singer Phil Collins – is being lined up to take on the role of Mia, who is one of the five friends who decide to take an ill-advised trip to a remote cabin in the woods.

    Just like the original film, the group of pals discover a dusty tome known as 'The Necronomicon', from which reading a passage out loud results in chaos with the release of flesh-possessing demons.

    Lily's character has recently suffered a drug overdose and is looking forward to a weekend of detox at the cabin.

    So when she starts claiming to have been attacked by the trees outside, her friends just assume it’s some sort of post-traumatic paranoia.

    The remake of the 1981 film will be directed by Fede Alvarez from a script co-written with Rodo Sayagues and Diablo Cody, Bloody Disgusting reports.

    It is due for release in April 2013.
