TV star JANE LEVY and Shiloh Fernandez are in talks to lead the cast of Sam Raimi's the Evil Dead remake.

Levy, the star of hit U.S. TV series Suburgatory, is slated to replace Lily Collins, who was forced to drop out of the project last month (Jan12) due to scheduling issues.

Deadline.com reports Red Riding Hood star Fernandez has already signed on to play the male lead in the horror film, which will be produced by Raimi and Bruce Campbell - the star of his cult original.

Director Fede Alvarez and Diablo Cody teamed up to work on the script for the film.
