Jane Levy Is Done With ‘Evil Dead’ for Now, But That Doesn’t Mean She’s Done With Horror

Jane Levy has really had her work cut out for her in the horror genre. She headlined a double dose of Fede Alvarez films – two of my absolute favorite horror films of the decade – and boy did those characters go through a lot of extreme scenarios during their fights for survival. There was the blood rain, arm-ripping and then some in 2013’s Evil Dead and then Levy powered through a home invasion nightmare in the 2016 release, Don’t Breathe. As much as I lose myself in both movies, after watching them, I’ve always got to stop and think about how much a performance like that has got to take out of you.

But of course, Evil Dead is one of the most iconic horror franchises of all time and Levy is part of that legacy. Even though she’s already made a big contribution to the series, I just had to ask her if she’d be willing to give even more, especially now that we know that Evil Dead Now is in the works from writer-director Lee Cronin. During Levy’s upcoming episode of Collider Connected in honor of her NBC series Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, I asked her if she’d return to the Evil Dead franchise and the role of Mia if Cronin offered her a part in the new film. Levy simply replied, “No.”
