One of the best independent films of the last decade is Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever, which ages like fine wine. With a sequel already in the books (Spring Fever was directed by Ti West and released in 2009), The Indomina Group has landed franchise rights with plans on producing multiple films featuring more skin-rotting terror.
The Indomina Group has optioned the rights for two new Cabin Fever installments, which will be Cabin Fever: Patient Zero and Cabin Fever: Outbreak. The films will be shot back to back in the Dominican Republic in early Spring of 2012. Details inside. Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher, When Strangers Call) has signed on to pen the screenplay for Cabin Fever: Patient Zero. “When a cruise ship in the Caribbean collides with an abandoned research vessel, a deadly virus is unleashed. Passengers must find a way to survive before the flesh eating disease consumes them all.”
Cabin Fever: Outbreak is being written by Adam and Deborah Marcus (Leatherface 3D, I Walked With a Zombie). “In this film a doctor and his family travel to a remote Caribbean island to investigate a minor flu outbreak, only to discover a vicious flesh-eating virus that threatens everyone on the island. The family is faced with responsibility to prevent a worldwide epidemic.”
Original Cabin Fever producer Hypotenuse Pictures is producing these next two films. Indomina Group Vice Chairman and CEO Jasbinder Singh Mann is executive producer on both films.
“We see tremendous potential with the ‘Cabin Fever’ franchise,” said Singh Mann. “We are committing to two new ‘Cabin Fever’ films because there is a real demand from a devout fanbase – not just ‘Cabin Fever’ die hards but a large and vocal group of horror fans around the world. Indomina is excited to take the reigns of the franchise and deliver on these next two films.”
