Evil Dead Remake: Out With The Ash, In With The Mia

When we previously discussed the Evil Dead remake, the writers were still aiming to have the character David as the star replacement for the original Ash. According to news released yesterday by Ghost House and Mandate Pictures, however, his sister Mia stole the limelight and will now wear the mantle as Ashs replacement.

The decision makes sense: no living male can match the manly, chainsaw-wielding imagery of Bruce Campbell’s Ash. But a female – that’s a whole different story. A woman can create her own image and personality as Ash, one that may even rival the original popularity of Bruce Campbell’s Ash.

Lilly Collins (The Blind Side, Priest, Mirror Mirror) is scheduled to play the part of Mia in the Evil Dead remake, which should hit cinema theaters on April 12, 2013.

Here’s a recent photo of Lilly:

According to BloodyDisgusting, In this version, the story centers on five friends (David, Natalie, Eric, Olivia, and Mia) holed up at a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead with a demonic force unleashed possessing each until only one is left to fight for survival.

Mias character has a background of drug use, a habit that recently caused a nonfatal overdose. Mia goes with her friends to the cabin to escape from all temptations of drug relapse. Since she is struggling with sobriety, none of the other friends believe her claims of seeing and experiencing paranormal activity, like trees coming alive and attacking her.

The Evil Dead remake begins filming this March, in New Zealand.
