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…
