Cabin Fever – Remake!

cabin_fever_poster_xlgReally, it’s come to this… Cassian Elwes and Evan Astrowsky are producing a remake of Cabin Fever. Whether original creator and director Eli Roth is involved or not, and to what degree the remake/reboot/re-imagining will follow the original is up for debate. It all just seems a bit too soon…

The original film featured a handful of college graduates who vacation at a remote cabin in the woods, where they become infected with a voracious flesh-eating virus… gore aplenty. It was a great horror debut.

This news seems to be tied in with the upcoming relase of Cabin Fever: Patient Zero on June 26th, a prequel to Roth’s original film. The plot for Patient Zero is: A group of friends enjoy a bachelor cruise in the Caribbean and stumble upon a research facility on a remote island where a deadly virus is released.

The remake of Cabin Fever seems to be aimed as a follow up to this prequel…

Eli Roth is in for an incredibly busy year with the long awaited release of The Green Inferno, another horror flick Knock, Knock, about two girls who seduce a married man and make his life hell. He is also developing a sequel to Green Inferno as well as possibly directing the Dracula flick Harker.

On the production side he helped develop a film called Clown directed by Jon Watts who made a fake trailer last year in which he attached Roth’s name. Check out the fake trailer and the genuine one below.
