Captive Cinema has acquired the distribution rights for the highly-anticipated ‘Cabin Fever’ remake in the Philippines, which was directed by Travis Zariwny, a.k.a. Travis Z. Here’s what director Travis Z had to say about the film.
“It was a great opportunity to recreate an iconic film for a new generation of horror fans. I am a diehard fan of horror films and the king of horror Eli Roth trusted me to re-imagine his film. I was not going to fail.”
We first reported on the Cabin Fever remake back in October 2014, when it was announced that Travis Zariwny will direct from Eli Roth and Randy Pearlstein’s original script that was turned into the 2002 movie. The original movie and the remake follow a group of five college kids who rent a cabin in the woods for a fun-filled weekend of partying. The weekend turns out much different than they intended, as they begin to fall victim to a flesh-eating virus and all hell breaks loose. Gage Golightly (Teen Wolf), Dustin Ingram (Paranormal Activity 3), Samuel Davis (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series), Matthew Daddario (Delivery Man) and Nadine Crocker (Deadgirl) star in this redo.
Cabin Fever launched the directorial career of Eli Roth, who went on to make Hostel and Hostel: Part II in 2006 and 2007, respectively. The original Cabin Fever was shown in 2002, hitting theaters one year later in September 2003. It took in $30.5 million from a $1.5 million production budget for more on this upcoming horror-thriller.
“Cabin Fever” comes to theaters in 2016.
Released and distributed by CAPTIVE CINEMA.
