Phil Collins’ girl Lily to star in Evil Dead remake

Lily Collins is set to star in the Evil Dead remake.

The Mirror Mirror star – daughter of singer Phil Collins – is being lined up to take on the role of Mia, one of five friends who take an ill-advised trip to a remote cabin in the woods.

Just like the original film, the group of pals discover a dusty tome known as The Necronomicon, from which reading a passage out loud results in the release of nasty demons.

Lily’s character has recently suffered a drug overdose and is looking forward to a weekend of detox at the cabin.

So when she starts claiming to have been attacked by the trees outside, her friends just assume it’s some sort of post-traumatic paranoia.

The remake of the 1981 film will be directed by Fede Alvarez from a script co-written with Rodo Sayagues and Diablo Cody, Bloody Disgusting reports.

It is due for release in April 2013.
