Renowned comic book artist, turned director, Kaare Andrews, is directing the next installment which will tell the origin of the flesh-eating virus that was unleashed in the 2002 original, directed by Eli Roth.
Indomina, the fast-growing U.S. and Dominican Republic based producer and distributor of film, TV and trans-media content, committed to resurrecting the popular ‚ÄúCabin Fever‚ÄĚ franchise by producing and distributing at least two more feature installments: ‚ÄúCabin Fever: Patient Zero‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúCabin Fever: Outbreak.‚ÄĚ Both films will be shot in the Dominican Republic.
Original ‚ÄúCabin Fever‚ÄĚ producer Evan Astrowsky and his Hypotenuse Pictures is producing ‚ÄúPatient Zero‚ÄĚ with Indomina. Astrowsky commented, ‚ÄúWith Sean, we wanted an actor with gravity who is also popular with the fanboy fan-base. Coupling Sean with fresh faces like Ben and Brando gives ‚ÄėCabin Fever‚Äô the pedigree of cast we‚Äôve always desired.‚ÄĚ
Jake Wade Wall (‚ÄúThe Hitcher,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúWhen a Stranger Calls‚ÄĚ) wrote the ‚ÄúPatient Zero‚ÄĚ screenplay. In the film, "When a bachelor party cruise in the Caribbean unexpectedly runs ashore on a medical research island, 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."
