Now this is what I call out-of-the-box casting.
Thumbsucker and Carriers star Lou Taylor Pucci (an ex-Sundance darling once targeted by Steven Spielberg) is in talks to join the young ensemble of The Evil Dead remake.
Pucci will play Eric, an intense academic whose intellectual curiosity gets his group of friends into trouble. In short, he’ll be reading out of the “Book of the Dead” and resurrecting “Him”.
He joins Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez and Bruce Campbell i the remake of Raimi’s classic being helmed by Fede Alvarez.
