It looks like the rapey trees from Evil Dead are really going to have a blast molesting a whole new set of hot women in the upcoming remake of the 1981 cult classic. Actresses Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) have just joined the cast alongside Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, and Lou Taylor Pucci.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lucas is in final negotiations to star as the best friend of the withdrawing drug fiend (Levy) while Blackmore is set to star as the fiancee to the druggie’s brother (Fernandez). Lucas’s character will play a nurse, who will obviously come to the rescue when shit hits the fan, while Blackmore will be the new girl to the group, who will most likely provide the vulnerable and shy stereotypical horror character.
The film is being produced by Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Rob Tapert and being directed by Fede Alvarez–whoever the hell that is. The Evil Dead Remake is still set for a release date of April 12, 2013.
I personally love Lucas and think she’s not only gorgeous (with amazing breasts), but she’s a really great actress as well. I’m not too sure about Blackwell and I could care less about her but at least I have Lucas and Levy to look forward to. It looks like this movie may not be completely painful to watch when it comes out after all.
What do you think about the new cast?
