Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood) has signed on to play the male lead in the upcoming big-screen remake of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead, Variety reports. With the departure of Lily Collins as the female lead, Fernandez is now the sole confirmed cast member.
Fede Alvarez, who will direct the film, wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues. Diablo Cody did revisions on the draft. Original producing partners Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell (who also starred in the original franchise) and Sam Raimi will produce. Ghost House Pictures partners Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane will executive produce.
In this retelling, five friends hole up at a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead. A demonic force is unleashed possessing each until only one is left to fight for survival.
Evil Dead will begin production shortly in New Zealand, planning an April 12, 2013 release.
If you look at this year’s Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor Drama, it could also be for the year’s best screen hunk. George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt join two of our choices — Ryan Gosling and Michael Fassbender — for the hottest Hollywood leading men.
Both make this list because they were in two of the year’s hottest films — Gosling in “Drive” and Fassbender in “Shame,” two movies that feature sexy anti-heroes that have put them on top of the year’s best performances. That they both were seen in multiple films (Gosling in “The Ides of March” and “Crazy, Perfect Love”) Fassbender in “Jane Eyre,” “A Dangerous Mind” and “X-Men: First Class”) also had them on screen more than their peers.
Others on the list were in more than one film or had success on television. Some were hits, some not; but each is a looker that will likely be profiled on “E” in 2012 or (with apologies to Taylor Lautner) on the cover of People Magazine.
So here are some of the hunks that made a splash in the movies this past year and will likely do so next.
He lost the role of Edward Cullen to Robert Pattison, but Catherine Hardwicke (who directed the first film in that franchise) didn’t forget Shiloh Fernandez’s audition in her Venice Beach garage and cast him as one of the two hunks in “Red Riding Hood,” her tween update of the classic fairy tale. In the film, he starred with Max Irons as two village hunks in love with Amanda Seyfried.
Fernandez’s dark, bad-boy looks are why he’s getting more attention in Hollywood. According to his Wiki posting: “MTV Networks’ NextMovie.com named him one of the ’Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2011’. As he shot into the spotlight he became the cover model of Nylon Guys March 2011 issue, introducing him as “Hollywood’s New Rebel”. He then became the cover man for the April/May 2011 issue of Da Man magazine.”
Fernandez is currently filming “The East,” a terrorist thriller with Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page. He also recently co-starred in “Syrup,” a caper comedy with Kellan Lutz, Amber Heard and Britanny Snow, and is scheduled to be starring in “Adult World,” a comedy opposite Emma Roberts, playing a graduate student who thinks she is going to be a great poet, but ends up working in an adult bookstore.

I hope everyone’s having a great holiday!
Shiloh Fernandez has signed on to star in Fox Searchlight pic “The East.”
Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page were already lined up to star in the film, which Zal Batmanglij will direct.
Marling and Batmanglij wrote the script, which follows an employee of a private contracting firm who goes undercover to infiltrate a mysterious anarchist org known only as the East.
Michael Costigan will produce with Jocelyn Hayes Simpson and Marling through Scott Free Prods.
Fernandez will play the free-spirited and sexually adventurous member of Skarsgard’s eco-terrorism group.
While production is set to get under way soon, Batmanglij had been testing actors for months to find the perfect complement to Skarsgard and Page.
Fernandez was most recently seen in the Warner Bros. pic “Red Riding Hood” and just wrapped production on the indie “Syrup.”
“I grew up with the members of the band,” Shiloh said. “We’re all from Northern California and really like that soft reggae music, and I think they’ve done a great job and this album [The Sound] is fantastic. They sent it to me and I thought maybe we could come up with something that is beautiful and also of the area that we grew up in, and represent the band in a different way that you might not normally see.”
Shiloh also revealed that they shot the video on a budget of about $100 and that his brother and ex-girlfriend (who is also featured in the video) helped out in holding the camera when he had to be in the shots himself.
“Some of the inspiration for the video was, I had had a girlfriend in high school, from [the ages of] 14-19. I had this girlfriend, and we all knew each other, and we’d break up and get back together, and when I heard the song and how they described it to me, about their own relationships and the tumultuousness of young love and breaking up and getting back together, and how there is always that passion that always burns for one of your first loves, and actually use the girl from high school in the video, I connected with that.”

We all know marketing pours through every part of New York like spilled soda, covering us in sugary slogans and sexy fashion.
So when it came time to spoof a target, there was nothing like the real thing for “Syrup,” a fast-talking romantic comedy which finished shooting around the city this week.
Based on a comic novel by Max Barry, “Syrup” involves an up-and-coming marketing man named Scat (Shiloh Fernandez) who rises to the top of the soft drink game by adding some A-game pop and X-rated fizz. But first he must deal with a duplicitous roommate (“Twilight’s” Kellan Lutz) and a vixen named “Six” (Amber Heard, soon to be seen on TV’s “The Playboy Club”).
There’s also a competing hottie (Brittany Snow) called “3″ – because she’s half as sexy as 6 – and more corporate weaseliness than there are lights on Broadway.
FOX has officially announced plans to bring the 2010 Anthony Burns directed film “Skateland” starring Shiloh Fernandez, Ashley Greene and Heath Freeman to Blu-ray Disc on August 30th. Tech specs for the release include full 1080p Hi-Def video in the 2.40:1 aspect ratio and DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound. The title is already available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon with a $19.99 price tag. The only bonus materials set to be included on the release are Deleted Scenes.

Production just started for ‘Syrup’. You can read Max Barry (Syrup’s author) blog about the movie here. He already posted a few things about Shiloh:
It was also my first look at Shiloh Fernandez, outside of “Red Riding Hood” trailers, and holy hell, he is wonderful. He said lines and they magically became way better than they sounded in my head. He was Scat sprung to life. (People call him “Scat” even when he’s not acting, which reinforced my feeling that I had invented him.)
At the end of the day, I met Shiloh and Kellan and found them to be incredibly friendly and charming. I feel so grateful to these guys for not sucking. I should probably think of a better way to express that. What I mean is: you know when you have an awesome dream and you try to explain it to someone? And as it’s coming out of your mouth you realize this actually sounds incredibly lame. These guys are making the dream sound awesome.
I seriously can’t shake the feeling that I’m talking to Scat.
Included on the Red Riding Hood Blu-ray edition are many of these special extras including casting tapes, the making of the wolf, gag reels and deleted scenes. Hardwicke also shot an alternate ending, which appears on the Blu-ray edition. “As a director, every moment when you’re on set you try to be creative in that moment and one moment during filming I had this crazy idea and thought, ‘why don’t you try this?’ So I shot a different ending and then we tried it as one of the possible endings for the final version and I liked it a lot. I think the final one you saw in theaters might be better but I like them both. It’s kind of like a contest, ‘which one is more interesting?’”
