Eli Roth’s ‘Cabin Fever’ Remake On The Way
  |  @   |  

Horror director Eli Roth‘s feature directorial debut, Cabin Fever, was released 14 years ago already. Which means, in current Hollywood, that it’s long overdue for a remake. Surprise!

Yes indeed, Cabin Fever is being remade. And not only that, it’s doing so very quickly (and a bit strangely). Instead of doing the usual remake thing where an existing property is rewritten and reworked and recycled and all that jazz, a more familiar path is being traveled here. The remake already has its cast and begins filming this week, and it will be made using the exact same script Roth (who returns as an executive producer) and Randy Pearlstein wrote for the original through a new vision from director Travis Zariwny.

Of the announcement, Roth said:

“Travis had an amazing vision for my original script, and as a scary movie fan I really wanted to see it. I almost see this like re-staging a play, and I’m excited to see what ideas Travis and the cast bring to it. They’re all fans of the original and want to make a film that’s a new classic and I believe they will.”

The cast of the movie includes Gage Golightly (Teen Wolf), Dustin Ingram (Paranormal Activity 3), Samuel Davis (Machete Kills), Matthew Daddario (Delivery Man), and Nadine Crocker (Deadgirl).

The original Cabin Fever (or Movie Zero, as I suppose it should be called moving forward) was followed by two movies, Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever, which was directed by Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Sacrament), and a prequel titled Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, which was just released earlier this year.
