Cloverfield actress Jessica Lucas will be joining the cast of Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead remake, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Lucas would join Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore as five friends stuck in remote cabin who happen upon the Book of the Dead. They then unwittingly unleash a demonic force that possesses each person until only one is left to fight for survival.
Alvarez wrote the script alongside Rodo Sayagues, with Diablo Cody providing revisions. Production will begin shortly in New Zealand for an April 12, 2013 release.
