Jane Levy is in talks to play the lead in the remake of Evil Dead that Fede Alvarez will direct shortly. She replaces Lily Collins, who exited the film recently. Levy is the star of the ABC series Suburgatory, and stars in Fun Size, the Josh Schwartz-directed film for Paramount.
In FilmDistrict’s remake of Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead, Levy’s plays Mia, a character that corresponds to Ash, who was played by Bruce Campbell in the original 1981 movie. Mia is one of five young people who head to the remote cabin where evil awaits. Recovering from a recent overdose, Mia is particularly vulnerable. Raimi, Campbell and Rob Tapert are producing with Ghost House Pictures. Fede Alvarez is directing and co-wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues. Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) revised the latest draft. The movie is targeted to open April 12, 2013. Levy is repped by Gersh, Susskin Management and Robert Offer.
Just how important are “the woods” to an Evil Dead film? Pretty goddamn important. The environment certainly sets the atmosphere for this cabin in the woods tale. Today, director Fede Alvarez shared a glimpse, via Twitter, at the locale he is using for his remake of The Evil Dead. It’s just a tease, but we’ll take it!
Alvarez labeled this pic, “the path to hell.” Presumably, this dirt road will take you to the film’s cabin.
Shooting begins soon in New Zealand and casting is underway. Shiloh Fernandez of Deadgirl joined the production yesterday. Stay tuned for more updates!
With a polish by Diablo Cody, the story follows five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths 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.
Wow, what a news day! Shiloh will lead another movie, “Deep Powder”!
Killer Films has set up “Deep Powder” with “Uptown Girls” helmer Mo Ogrodnik writing and directing.
Pam Koffler is producing through Killer with plans to shoot the film in Gotham at the end of the month. Plot details are being kept under wraps.
Fernandez is likely to shoot “Deep Powder” first with “Evil Dead” later in the year.
Fernandez recently wrapped production on indie “The East” starring Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page as well as “Syrup,” also starring Amber Heard.
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.
