Remake Infection Spreads In ‘Cabin Fever’ (Exclusive)

cabin-fever-bluray

On June 26 RLJ/Image Entertainment will be releasing Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, a sequel to Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever that was produced by Indomina.

Originally, Indomina had planned on shooting back-to-back sequels, with the fourth film in the franchise being the cruise ship-themed Outbreak, penned by Adam and Deborah Marcus. The film was scrapped.

Now, sources at Cannes tell Bloody Disgusting that a remake of Roth’s classic 2002 cabin-in-the-woods splatterfest will go into production – without Indomina.

Evolution Entertainment, who produced the first three Saw films, as well as Dead Silence and Death Sentence, is producing with Cassian Elwes and Evan Astrowsky are producing the remake, without Indomina. No word on Roth’s involvement, but I’m assuming he won’t be actively involved.

The original, released by Lionsgate, followed a group of five college graduates who rent a cabin in the woods and begin to fall victim to a horrifying flesh-eating virus, which attracts the unwanted attention of the homicidal locals. Jordan Ladd, Rider Strong, James DeBello and Cerina Vincent starred.

Ti West directed the 2009 direct-to-DVD sequel, Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever.

There will probably be no pancakes in this remake…

    That’s craziness! I will buy Patient Zero. Too bad about the 4th one being ditched. Not interested in a remake.

  • Jonny-Horror

    Cabin Fever was great. It’s to “NEW” (2002) to be re-made already. WTF ??

    • EricBasile

      Spider-Man was too new to be remade as well.

      • Conor McCusker

        Spider man wasn’t being re-made it’s two different spidermen in two different marvel universes.

        • Evan3

          Conor, if you couldn’t tell that ASM was an obvious remake of Spider-Man, I don’t know what to say. It poorly ripped off of Raimi’s vision in multiple spots.
          OK, it was a reboot, but there was still no non-business need for ASM.

    lost me at “no pancakes”

      pancakes was a mulleted ninja!

      • RedRinger

        Pancakes…..Paaancakesss!!!!!

        • Tiffany

          I hated that brat. it made me want to kill him myself by giving him poison pancakes. -_-

  • Weresmurf

    Wow they’re pretty desperate for remake material now aren’t they… why not take the concept and apply it to a bigger budget… say ‘the disease hits a CITY now’?

  • Maxime C

    Patiznt Zero is not really good. Neither were the first two. They should just give up.

    • Tiffany

      the first one was god awful. the characters you wanted them all to die cuz they were all assholes and unlikable, the dialogue was awful, the writing was piss poor. they just need to fucking stop.

  • Adam Clifton

    Another miserable fucking remake. It’s not going to be better than the original. There’s no way to improve on the original. So, why bother wasting all that money on a remake? Just do a sequel or let the series rest.

    • Double-D

      I agree. There is no need to remake this. It’s getting to a point where Hollywood will start remakes before originals even hit the screen. It’s getting out of hand. I will watch a prequel, or sequel, but will not drop a dime on a remake.

  • zombie84_41

    Seriously ?

  • ThunderDragoon

    “There will probably be no pancakes in this remake…”
    Thank God! XD I never really did care for Cabin Fever. Maybe this remake will tackle some new things that the original didn’t. Have to say, though, my first reaction to reading this news was, “WHAT?” The movie still feels so new. Well, no stopping the remake train, I guess.

    • tbaio

      Ordinarily, I’d condemn a remake being done so soon. However, when you consider just how bad the original movie was, this remake can only improve on it. As a result, I’m all for it.

    ……the remake train is moving faster then the industry can put out movies, next thing you know they’ll be “remaking” a movie that came out last year….this is insanely ridiculous….and they’re not even “remaking” a GOOD movie for crying out loud! this is why I try to support more indie movies, at least they have more imagination

  • http://UserName high-rise-rat

    A remake? Shit man it dont take long nowadays to remake a film that dont need remaking.

    Cabin Fever: Patient Zero was better than part II but still it wasn’t that great.

    I wonder how Eli feels? Especially on his birthday…

  • Zahk Scott

    Patient Zero was pretty bad. I think the original is still modern enough that it doesn’t need a remake really, but I guess they’ve remade more recent movies.

    • RedRinger

      Have you seen it? I thought patient zero was a new one yet to be released?

      • Zahk Scott

        You can stream it from a number of sites in entirety with full DVD quality.

      • Adam Clifton

        Its been out in Australia for awhile now actually

    • Shit

      that was the one on the island right? i didn’t think it was that bad… it was insanely ridiculous- but that’s why i loved the first one. shitty acting, but still pretty cool

  • Alvin Marcott

    a remake? why no new stories, hollywood? why? :-(

  • dth

    What in the? I remember vividly seeing this film twice on opening weekend in high school. A remake is completely unnecessary. Hell, I’m still waiting on them to make a decent sequel. Sure the movie has its fan base, but I highly doubt a theatrical release will make that much money. I still know plenty of people my age who haven’t seen the flick — let it make its rounds. Wait another 20 years at least, Jesus.

  • J. Philip vanHeijkoop

    lol, how sad.

  • djblack1313

    i have no interest in watching a remake of Eli’s film. i would have had an interest in the cruise ship setting sequel. well that sucks.

    • mobstar67

      Yeah i kind of agree with ya but I have to admit out of sheer curiosity my willpower would deteriorate and I would end up watching with complete excitement regardless…
      I’m a pure sucker for horror…

  • djblack1313

    i have no interest in watching a remake of Eli’s film. i would have had an interest in the cruise ship setting sequel. well that sucks.

  • Ben Bergeron

    can’t be better than the original. it had this …something that i’d never seen before in a movie.fuck remakes.

  • Taboo

    So many damn remakes lol

  • http://mitchmacready.blogspot.com/ Zombie-Killa

    I don’t even………

    WHY? 2002, and we need a remake now? I haven’t seen the cruise ship sequel (and I’m not too eager to watch after the trailers), but I enjoyed Ti West’s sequel with the high school prom.

    I have no interest whatsoever in a remake, and this is just sad.

  • EvilHead1981

    I saw this type of thing coming YEARS ago. When the whole remake trend was taking off, everybody was saying, “They are only remaking movies that are 20+ years old, so it makes sense to re-introduce them to a new audience!”, and I said that it won’t stop there, that eventually Hollywood would get so bad that they’d start to reboot films from the 00s as well. Lo and behold, either the studios or audience have the attention span of an ADD/ADHD teen chugging 20 Monster energy drinks, or maybe it’s both, because nobody’s content with just letting franchises age gracefully(at least to the point that you get a good amount of decades between them until the next reboot). Pretty soon, it’s going to be a new reboot each year.

  • Saren Nevac

    Why cant they just make an original/new movie about a flesh eating disease instead of remaking another movie about a flesh eating disease. Not like Cabin Fever had an original idea or plot.

  • mobstar67

    I hope they put more money, casting and direction into this than they did with the two sequels because they are both really bad..Cabin Fever was a really well made film and if they insist on rebooting it they need to give it the respect it deserves..Not some direct to dvd garbage….

  • dirtyghettok

    This is one of those films you watch knowing it’s going to be bad, but you still get pissed afterwards about how really bad it was.

  • Tiffany

    the original sucked and the sequels sucked. now another piece of shit cabin fever movie? wow. can Hollywood be anymore fucktarded?

  • Krug09

    Personally i enjoyed the movie when i was 14 and still own the DVD for CF1. I never saw the sequels and don’t want a remake. The first movie love it or hate it, said what it needed to say. It was basically a gore fest why do you need to remake it?

  • JADAMA

    Well the original was awesome so I can’t see why it needs a reboot so soon. I really didn’t care for the sequels though.

  • mobstar67

    Hollywood has fun out of foreign countries to rape and pillage horror films so its now time to rehash domestic films that are relatively “babies” in movie years..

  • Travis

    Honestly, I didn’t really care for the original. Roth is someone I’ve never been really impressed with. I really want to see The Green Inferno, though.

  • LeightonJones

    Just saw Patient Zero last night, and enjoyed it so I’m gutted they wont be doing a sequel. I can’t see any benefit to doing a remake, especially of such a recent film.
