EVIL DEAD Remake Begins Production

Fede Alvarez-directed remake goes before cameras.

Ghost House Pictures has announced that principal photography has begun on the remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult-hit horror film ‘Evil Dead.’

Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

A core cast of young, fresh talent includes Jane Levy (‘Suburgatory’) as Mia; Shiloh Fernandez (‘Deadgirl,’ ‘Red Riding Hood’) as David; Lou Taylor Pucci (‘Carriers’) as Eric; Jessica Lucas (‘Cloverfield’) as Olivia and Elizabeth Blackmore (‘Legend of the Seeker’) as Natalie.

‘Evil Dead’ marks director Fede Alvarez’ feature debut.
