The Sam Raimi-produced, Diablo Cody-polished, Fede Alvarez-directed "The Evil Dead" remake continues to line up some young victims and the latest is a name who has been working steadily the past few years, but hasn't quite matched his breakout film.

Lou Taylor Pucci, who first came to attention of film fans in Mike Mills' "Thumbsucker," is the latest to head into the forest of "The Evil Dead," joining Jane Levy and Shiloh Fernandez. The new spin on the story will follow a group of teens out to the woods to help their friend detox, only to stumble across the Book Of The Dead, and well, you know what happens next. Those demons won't be hallucinations caused from withdrawl. Pucci will play Eric, an intense academic whose intellectual curiosity gets them into trouble (and is probably super annoying).

Filming kicks off next month in New Zealand, with "The Evil Dead" arriving on April 12, 2013.

    No Bruce Campbell? No Raimi directing? Who gives a fuck?

    Bruce Campbell was horrible with the originals. Who the hell cares if HE'S not in it? Raimi is still producing it along with Bruce. Do some research.

    "Those demons won't be hallucinations caused from withdrawl"
    Would you bet on that ? ;)
    I mean with Cody writing and this pitch as a starter I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be a hipster/armchair-sociology shlockfest.

    Beside: remember those dreadful Lewis/Argento lines in Juno ...
