In what is either the least or most timely film news of the month, it was announced today that writer-director Eli Roth is executive producing a remake of his 2002 flesh-eating virus horror film, Cabin Fever.
The new Cabin Fever will use the script from Roth’s original film and stars Gage Golightly, Dustin Ingram, Samuel Davis, Matthew Daddario, and Nadine Crocker. The movie is being directed by Travis Zariwny and starts shooting in Portland, Ore., this week.
The original, low budget Cabin Fever grossed $21 million domestically and inspired a sequel, 2009’s Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever, and the recent prequel, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero.
