It’s been reported that Lily Collins (who has been cast as Clary Fray in the City of Bones film) has dropped out of The Evil Dead remake she was cast in, due to “a scheduling conflict”.
Fede Alvarez‘ remake of Sam Raimi‘s The Evil Dead has lost its star. While things looked to be moving quickly, Variety’s Jeff Sneider now reports that Lily Collins has had to withdraw from the project due to scheduling issues. The only other project on her slate (that we know of) is the adaptation of The Mortal Instruments, so it’s possible that the shooting schedule for that film is the culprit. Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell are all producing the update based on Raimi’s 1981 horror film, and they hand-selected Alvarez to direct. Plot details are still scarce at this point, but Diablo Cody (who did some rewrite work on the script) described the project as “unbelievably violent.” (via: Collider )
I think it’s safe to say that this gives us all hope for the filming of City of Bones. Cassandra Clare stated that Screen Gems was hoping to start filming in spring of this year. The Evil Dead is scheduled to start filming in March. Could it be happening? Should we be on the look-out for more movie news to come? Us fans can only hope so!
The Fans are hard, but these are no ordinary Fans.
