Lohman replaces Page in ‘Hell’

Actress takes lead role in Sam Raimi thriller

Alison Lohman will step into the lead role in Sam Raimi’s supernatural thriller “Drag Me to Hell.”

Ellen Page had been poised to topline the Ghost House Pictures/Mandate Pictures project but stepped aside due to scheduling conflicts.

Universal Pictures will distribute “Drag Me to Hell” domestically.

Film, which will mark Raimi’s first helming effort since “Spider-Man 3,” centers on the unwitting recipient of a supernatural curse.

Shooting in Los Angeles is scheduled to begin March 31, two weeks later than the pic’s original start date.

Raimi penned the screenplay with his brother Ivan.

Rob Tapert, Grant Curtis and Josh Donen are producing. Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake exec produce.

Lohman, whose credits include “Matchstick Men” and “Big Fish,” recently appeared in Robert Zemeckis’ “Beowulf” and “Things We Lost in the Fire.”
