CABIN FEVER: Eli Roth Producing Remake with Same Script

Rider Strong Jordan Ladd Joey Kern Cerina Vincent Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever is Getting Remade. Eli Roth‘s 2012 film Cabin Fever is being remade with the exact same Roth-Randy Pearlstein script from the original film. Roth will be producing this time around, with the directorial duties falling to Travis Zariwny.

On the original the Cabin Fever:

Cabin Fever is a 2002 American black comedy horror film directed by Eli Roth and starring Rider Strong, Jordan Ladd, James DeBello and Giuseppe Andrews. It was produced by Lauren Moews & Evan Astrowsky and executive produced by Susan Jackson. The film was the directing debut of Roth, who co-wrote the film with Randy Pearlstein. The story follows a group of college graduates who rent a cabin in the woods and begin to fall victim to a flesh-eating virus. The inspiration for the film’s story came from a real life experience during a trip to Iceland when Roth developed a skin infection.

Roth wanted the style of his film to make a departure from many modern horror films that had been released at the time. One modern horror film, The Blair Witch Project, did inspire Roth to use the internet to help promote the film during its production and help gain interest towards its distribution. The film itself, however, draws from many of Roth’s favorite horror films, such as The Evil Dead, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and The Last House on the Left.

The cast of the new version of Cabin Fever:

The new version will star Teen Wolf‘s Gage Golightly, Dustin Ingram, Samuel Davis, Matthew Daddario and Nadine Crocker.

With all of the crappy sequels that happened after the original film was released, starting over with a clean slate seems like a wise move.
