In purely practical terms, it’s unlikely that Fede Alvarez‘s Evil Dead remake will live up to the marketing promise that it’s “the most terrifying film you will ever experience.” But even if it fails to meet that high bar, it’s clearly trying its hardest to push that envelope.
The first red-band trailer was packed end to end with disturbing, blood-drenched images, to the point that it made Sam Raimi‘s 1981 original look mild and mellow in comparison.

Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood) and Lou Taylor Pucci (Beginners) boarded the project last month, as Jane Levy (Suburgatory) stepped up to replace Collins.
Now the newest addition to the roster is Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker), while Jessica Lucas (Melrose Place) has entered talks. The actresses will play two more pals who get wrapped up in the horrors released by the Necromonicon. More details after the jump.

Update: I’ve heard from reliable sources that Mary Elizabeth Winstead is not testing for The Avengers.
Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson, recently told Jimmy Fallon that he would be doing tests with “like five” different actresses who are up for a yet-to-be-cast role in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers. That role is for Fury’s assistant and The Hollywood Reporter says four of the actresses who will be testing are Morena Baccarin (who has previously worked with Whedon on Firefly and Serenity and is now seen on V), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) and Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother).
