There has been a bit of revolving casting going on with The Evil Dead remake as Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror) was set to star and then left the project. But it looks like the leads are set now with Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood) and Jane Levy (Suburgatory) in place. Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) is now in talks to join the project, a reimagining of Sam Raimi’s 1981 original that follows a group of teens who unleash a horde of demons through their discovery of the Book of the Dead. Pucci is expected to play Eric, an overly curious intellectual type who stirs up most of the trouble. Hit the jump for more on The Evil Dead, as well as a casting addition to Django Unchained.

Variety reportedevil-dead-remake that Pucci is in talks to join the Fede Alvarez-directed remake. Alvarez co-wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues and revisions by Diablo Cody.
