Lydia Hearst (pictured), the model-turned-actress daughter of Patty Hearst, has joined the cast of Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, the reboot of the horror movie from Indomina, reports Heat Vision.
Sean Astin and Brano Eaton are starring in the pic, which also has Gillian Murray and Ryan Donowho as part of the cast. Mitch Ryan, meanwhile, has stepped into the shoes vacated by Ben Hollingsworth, whose schedule was crunched when he booked a role on CW’s midseason show “Cult.”
“The story kicks off when a bachelor party cruise in the Caribbean unexpectedly runs ashore on a medical-research island and a deadly virus is unleashed. The passengers must struggle to find a way to survive before their own demons and the flesh-eating bacteria consumes them all.”
Lydia will play a wide-eyed research grad student who is aligned with the film’s antagonist (Astin).
Comic book artist Kaare Andrews (who helmed the horrid Altitude) is directing from a screenplay penned by Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher).
Shooting is due to begin mid-October in the Dominican Republic.
Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings, The Goonies, Encino Man), Brando Eaton (“Dexter,” “American Horror Story”) and Ben Hollingsworth will topline Indomina’s Cabin Fever: Patient Zero with Kaare Andrews directing, reports Variety.
Shooting will start August 13 in the Dominican Republic, where Indomina has part of its operations. It also plans to shoot Cabin Fever: Outbreak in the Dominican Republic.

This week’s Twisted Music Video Of The Week brings us something a little more mellow musically but just as weird visually: Boards Of Canada‘s Everything You Do Is A Balloon. The video uses clips from the 1963 bicycle safety film, One Got Fat (which you can download here), and shows several children, all wearing ape masks, dying one by one as they ride their bikes. It counts down much the same way that Ten Little Indians does.
Check it out after the jump and make sure to leave a comment with what video you think should be up here for next week!
