A couple years after the release of Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever, a indie horror film about a flesh eating virus starring Sean Hunter Ryder Strong, a straight-to-dvd sequel called Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever appeared. I’ve had the displeasure of wasting a sick day watching this sh*tshow of a sequel on Netflix Instant, and if you’ve seen this film (NOTE: it’s still there if you’re brave), you’d be convinced that any continuation of the Cabin Fever series would not only be impossible, but a terrible idea at that.
Today, however, came the news that there’s not one, but two Cabin Fever prequels being planned by producer Evan Astrowsky and Indomina Group and Hypotonuse Pictures. The first prequel, Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, follows passengers of a Caribbean cruise ship that dock on a private island used for super secret science experiments. I’ll give you a nickel if you can guess what super secret science experiment is being run on super secret science experiment island. The script was penned by Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher) and will be directed by none other than Kaare Andrews, a famed comic book writer/artist known for his work on Ultimate X-Men and Spider Man: Reign.
Nothing is known about the second prequel other than it will be called Cabin Fever: Outbreak and producer Evan Astrowsky is getting WAY ahead of himself.[Via Heat Vision]
