Evil Dead Rise stars Lily Sullivan and Alyssa Sutherland recently met up with Evil Dead 2013 star Jane Levy
Evil Dead Rise (read our review right HERE) will be introducing fans of the Evil Dead franchise to sisters Beth and Ellie, played by Lily Sullivan and Alyssa Sutherland, when the film reaches theatres on April 21st. In the build-up to the release of the film, Sutherland has taken to social media to share an image of her and Sullivan hanging out with another Evil Dead franchise heroine: Jane Levy from Evil Dead 2013.
It should be noted that Levy does not appear in Evil Dead Rise, this is just a fun picture of the stars of different entries in a franchise hanging out together:
Evil Dead franchise creator Sam Raimi handpicked Lee Cronin to write and direct a new Evil Dead movie after seeing his feature directorial debut The Hole in the Ground. The story Cronin crafted for Evil Dead Rise has the following synopsis: A road-weary Beth pays an overdue visit to her older sister Ellie, who is raising three kids on her own in a cramped L.A apartment. The sisters’ reunion is cut short by the discovery of a mysterious book deep in the bowels of Ellie’s building, giving rise to flesh-possessing demons, and thrusting Beth into a primal battle for survival as she is faced with the most nightmarish version of motherhood imaginable.
Although the film is set in Los Angeles, filming actually took place in New Zealand. Lily Sullivan and Alyssa Sutherland star as the estranged sisters at the heart of the story. Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, and Nell Fisher play Ellie’s three kids. Mia Challis is playing Jessica, “an 18 year old girl, who is obsessed with fashion and Instagram. Jessica loves to be the center of attention, although she is smarter than she lets on”.
Bruce Campbell doesn’t have an acting role in Evil Dead Rise, as he has formally retired from playing franchise hero Ash on screen, but he did produce the movie alongside Raimi and Rob Tapert, as those three hold the rights to the series. Evil Dead Rise is a collaboration between Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, and Ghost House Pictures.
