Lily Collins has reportedly dropped out of the Evil Dead remake.

The Abduction star was in line to play the lead role of Mia in the reboot of the 1981 cult horror movie, but she has stepped aside due to "scheduling issues", according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.

No more details on the scheduling clash have been released, but Lily, 22, will next be seen in Tarsem Singh's Snow White movie Mirror Mirror and she is due to start filming The Mortal Instruments.

The Evil Dead remake will be directed by Fede Alvarez.

Sam Raimi, who was at the helm of the original three movies, is one of the producers.
