Red Riding Hood and Deadgirl star Shiloh Fernandez (pictured below) has now become the first official cast member (after the departure of Lily Collins) in FilmDistrict and Mandate’s Evil Dead reboot.
Per Variety, “The ‘Evil Dead’ role was highly sought after by young actors. Though the plot is similar to the original, the idea is a new take, this time without the character of Ash.
Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell will produce through Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures banner. The project was announced in November in a worldwide deal (excluding the U.K. and France) between Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions, FilmDistrict and Ghost House Pictures. Sony Pictures will distribute.
Now that the male lead is set, the search is on for the female lead, as Lily Collins fell out after scheduling conflicts.”
