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 “Cabin Fever” franchise by producing and distributing at least two more feature installments: “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero” and “Cabin Fever: Outbreak.” Both films will be shot in the Dominican Republic.
Original “Cabin Fever” producer Evan Astrowsky and his Hypotenuse Pictures is producing “Patient Zero” with Indomina. Astrowsky commented, “With 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 ‘Cabin Fever’ the pedigree of cast we’ve always desired.”
Jake Wade Wall (“The Hitcher,” “When a Stranger Calls”) wrote the “Patient Zero” 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."
