Jane Levy, best known as the start of ABC’s sitcom “Suburgatory,” has officially been cast as the new female lead in Sam Raimi’s “The Evil Dead” remake. A role previously attached to Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror), who was previously cast but had dropped out.
While I’m sad to see Collins go, I think Levy is a fine addition. Although I’m not too familiar with Levy’s body of work, I have confidence that she’ll do well.
Levy will play Mia, the female Ash character in the remake which tells the story of five friends (David, Natalie, Eric, Olivia, and Mia) who hole up at a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead and accidentally releases a demonic force possessing each until only one is left to fight for survival.
“The Evil Dead” remake is set to open April 12th, 2013.
