Lohman Takes Over for Page   

March 4, 2008 Alison Lohman is taking over the lead role in Sam Raimi's supernatural horror film "Drag Me to Hell," according to Variety.

The trade reports:

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.
