Mia Challis (“Clickbait”) has joined Lily Sullivan and Alyssa Sutherland in writer/director Lee Cronin’s “Evil Dead Rise” for HBO Max, Warner Bros., New Line Cinema and Ghost House Pictures.
In the new film, a road-weary Beth pays an overdue visit to her older sister Ellie, who is raising three kids on her own in a cramped Los Angeles apartment.
The 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.
Challis will play Jessica, an 18-year-old girl, who is obsessed with fashion and Instagram. Jessica loves to be the center of attention and is smarter than she lets on.
Filmed on location in New Zealand, the film is being produced by Robert Tapert and executive produced by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell among others.
