Production on director Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead remake officially wrapped last month, and fans of director Sam Raimi's 1981 original and subsequent sequels are anxiously awaiting the results. Despite being a producer on the remake, Raimi admitted to MTV during the San Diego Comic-Con that he too was excited to see the results.
"I just think Fede Alvarez has really made a great horror movie," said Raimi. "It's scary. The actors are great in it. It's really gut-wrenching, real low budget and intense."
Adding to Raimi's "gut-wrenching" assessment is actor Jessica Lucas (CW's Melrose Place, Cloverfield), who will play the best friend to lead Jane Levy (Suburgatory) and told Digital Spy (via Evil Dead News) that the remake is "very dark and violent." read lucas' comments >> Posted 08.01.12 by Ryan
With production set to start next month in New Zealand, director Fede Alvarez is filling out his cast for the upcoming remake of Evil Dead.
Like director Sam Raimi's 1981 original, the remake will follow five friends who spend a weekend in a remote cabin and find the mystical Book of the Dead. Jane Levy (Suburgatory) is set to play the lead Mia, who heads to the cabin to detox from some substance abuse issues and ends up having to tackle evil spirits, and Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood) will play Mia's brother David. THR reports that Jessica Lucas (CW's Melrose Place, Cloverfield), pictured, is in talks to play Levy's best friend who is also a nurse. Newcomer Elizabeth Blackmore (Burning Man) will play Fernandez's fiancée and is new to the group. Lucas and Blackmore join a cast that also includes Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) as Eric, the group's "academic" who find the Book of the Dead and likely reads it and releases the evil spirits. more about the Evil Dead remake >> Posted 03.08.12 by Ryan
Last April, Samuel L. Jackson revealed that his nine-movie deal with Marvel did not include the upcoming Thor, but would include Captain America. During an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jackson went back on his own word and revealed that he will, in fact, appear in Thor.

In the next month or so, I have to do one day on Thor, and I gotta do another day on Captain America, and in April we start Avengers — the big deal with everybody. Thor and Captain America are pretty much done, but I haven’t done my part in them yet. I’m just connective tissue for them to join The Avengers.
