Cabin Fever is evolving into a full fledged franchise now with the addition of Cabin Fever: Patient Zero. Check out the latest casting news below.
Variety reports that Sean Astin, Brando Eaton and Ben Hollingsworth will star in Indomina’s sequel, which is set to begin production on August 13th in the Dominican Republic, where Indomina has some of its operations.
The flick will tell the origin of the flesh-eating virus that was unleashed in the 2002 original, directed by Eli Roth. The new film follows the passengers of a cruise ship in the Caribbean that runs aground on a research island. They must find a way to survive before the disease consumes them. Jake Wade Wall, who wrote the remake of The Hitcher, penned the script.
Original Cabin Fever producer Evan Astrowsky and his Hypotenuse Pictures are producing the movie with Indomina. The plan is to segue this film into a second sequel, Cabin Fever: Outbreak. Indomina Group vice chairman and CEO Jasbinder Singh Mann is executive producing.
