As production progresses, it was also announced that Mia Challis will be part of the film. The young actress, who will also appear in the eight-episode thriller on Netflix, Clickbait, will play an 18-year-old girl obsessed with fashion and social media in evil dead rise, according to deadline. She joins Lily Sullivan (In the jungle) and Alyssa Sutherland (The fog) in the cast of the feature.
In addition, more details of the plot were also revealed. In the fourth film in the franchise, Beth (Sullivan) decides to visit her older sister (Sutherland), who is raising three children alone in a cramped Los Angeles apartment. What should have been a happy reunion turns into a nightmare when they discover an ancient book that causes demons to appear to threaten their lives. Now Beth finds herself in a battle for survival as she is faced with the most terrifying version of motherhood.
In addition to taking care of the direction, Cronin also signs the script for the film. He was hand-picked by Sam Raimi, creator of the franchise, who said he was “excited to be working with a director whose talents as a storyteller make him the ideal filmmaker to continue the enduring legacy of evil dead”.
Morgan Davies, Gabrielle Echols and Nell Fisher complete the film’s cast, with roles not yet released.
evil dead rise arrives exclusively at the HBO Max catalogue. The film still has no confirmed release date.
