Red Riding Hood co-star Shiloh Fernandez has been cast in the remake of Evil Dead. He’ll play one of the hapless teenagers trapped in a ghoulish cabin in the woods, but he won’t be filling the role of Ash. That character, played by cult icon Bruce Campbell in the original, is not expected to appear in the remake.
Priest co-star Lily Collins was attached to play the new female protagonist before dropping out last month. The role will instead be played by Jane Levy, star of the comedic TV series Suburgatory.
Shooting on the remake of Evil Dead will begin soon, with a release date slated for next year.
