Close to a month ago, we reported that Lily Collins would be the lead lady in the new Evil Dead reboot but it appears that isn't the case anymore. Jeff Sneider of Variety has tweeted that director Fede Alvarez is looking for a new leading lady because Lily Collins has been forced to drop out of the film due to scheduling conflicts.
“Again, in case you missed it, LILY COLLINS is OUT of THE EVIL DEAD reboot due to a scheduling issue. Agents, start your engines…”
No word on who the director or studio maybe checking out to replace Collins as filming is set to begin soon for the April 12th, 2013 release. The script was co-written by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues with Diablo Cody doing a rewrite.
