Collins lands role in Evil Dead?

Lily Collins is apparently in final negotiations to star in the Evil Dead reboot.

The Mirror Mirror actress would play the lead role of Mia in the film, a remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 cult horror movie, the Bloody Disgusting blog reports.

In this version, the plot focuses on five friends staying in a remote cabin, who find a book of the dead which unleashes a demonic force.

Lily's character would reportedly be heading to the cabin to detox after a recent overdose.

Fede Alvarez is directing the remake from his own screenplay, co-written with Rodo Sayagues. Oscar-winning Juno writer Diablo Cody also helped revise the script.
