Cabin Fever: Patient Zero to Be the First in a New TrilogyYou know we were just thinking to ourselves the other day… “You know what we need? We need Cabin Fever: Patient Zero to reboot the franchise and kick off a new trilogy!” Okay, so we weren’t actually thinking that but apparently Voltage Pictures is.

Screen Daily reports that Voltage is handling Cabin Fever sales at Cannes, along with the original film’s producer Evan Astrowsky, and they’re developing at least two more films in addition to Patient Zero to create a new trilogy. Hooray!

Sean Astin and Brano Eaton are starring in the pic, which also has Jillian Murray and Ryan Donowho as part of the cast. Mitch Ryan, meanwhile, has stepped into the shoes vacated by Ben Hollingsworth, whose schedule was crunched when he booked a role on The CW’s midseason show “Cult”.

The story kicks off when a bachelor party cruise in the Caribbean unexpectedly runs ashore on a medical-research island and a deadly virus is unleashed. The passengers must struggle to find a way to survive before their own demons and the flesh-eating bacteria consumes them all.

Comic book artist Kaare Andrews is directing from a screenplay penned by Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher).

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I wasn’t really anticipating this, but when I read the screenplay was being penned by Jake Wade Wall I lost what little faith I may have had. Ah, who am I kidding, I’ll Netflix it…
