Meet the star of the new Evil Dead

Meet the star of the new Evil Dead

Bloody Disgusting says Lily Collins (“Abduction”, the upcoming “Mirror Mirror”) will play ‘Mia’, the recovering drug-addict who falls prey to the cabin of horrors, in the remake of “Evil Dead”.

Fede Alvarez directs the redo of the Sam Raimi classic, which goes into production in New Zealand in March.

As per my recent character breakdown piece, here’s the lowdown on the character of ‘Mia’ :

Mia and David, estranged siblings who have recently lost their mother (Mia’s taking it the hardest being that she’s the one who spent most days at the hospital watching her mother deteriorate) have reunited, along with some old friends and his David’s fiancee, for an intervention at THAT old cabin. It’s here that the near rehabilitated Mia (who has apparently already been cast) will also toss the last of her drugs down the well and finally go cold Turkey.

A big storm sets in. Everyone heads to the cabin. The book of the dead is found, and arrogant Eric (one of the friends along for the trip) takes the most interest in transcribing passages from it. Always the dicks that bring the trouble, right?

Meanwhile Mia struggles with her newly sober self — BIG TIME. She was going slightly loopy anyway from a recent overdose (one in which she technically died from but was brought back) so no surprise that Mia is the first and worst to go bananas. And no surprise either that nobody believes her crazy claims of coyote dogs and trees attacking her!

Convinced this is just a crazy druggo coming to grips with her new reality, the gang insist Mia stay put. As far as they’re concerned, she’ll do anything to get out of the cabin and back to the comfort of a bar.

The stuff Mia starts seeing (she sees in the mirror a bloody face with a cracked skull sticking out) and doing (vomiting blood and vile at her friends; getting trigger-happy with a rifle) is alarming; but again, David and co say she’s not leaving until she’s cold turkey. Bad idea obviously — the more time in the cabin, the further the demon that lives there can climb inside her body and take it over. (Continued…)

Is Milly Collins the right choice or Mia, ya think!?
