Jane Levy Replacing Lily Collins as Star of 'The Evil Dead' Remake

It looks like the twenty-two year-old star of TV's Suburgatory will replace Lily Collins in the Evil Dead remake. Redhead Jane Levy is in talks to play the central role in director Fede Alvarez's film. More after the jump.

According to a Deadline exclusive, "In FilmDistrict's remake of Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead, Levy plays Mia, a character that corresponds to Ash, who was played by Bruce Campbell in the original 1981 movie. Mia is one of five young people who head to the remote cabin where evil awaits. Recovering from a recent overdose, Mia is particularly vulnerable. Raimi, Campbell and Rob Tapert are producing with Ghost House Pictures. Fede Alvarez is directing and co-wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues. Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) revised the latest draft. The movie is targeted to open April 12, 2013. Levy is repped by Gersh, Suskin Management and Robert Offer."
