Kaare Andrews is reportedly in final negotiations to board the prequel to Eli Roth’s “Cabin Fever” horror movie, titled, “Patient Zero” for the Indomina Group, who announced their intentions to continue the franchise with “Patient Zero” and a second sequel, “Outbreak” last October.
Andrews is a comic book writer who made his feature film debut with the 2010 creature film “Altitude”, one of those movies that you either love or hate with a passion. I have yet to meet anyone who feels halfway about the film.
As the title hints, “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero” will trace the origins of the flesh-eating virus, this time feasting on the passengers of a cruise ship in the Caribbean that runs aground on a research island. (You gotta wonder if the filmmakers were just a little hesitant to go forward with that plot in light of the recent Costa Concordia cruise liner tragedy? Then again, maybe not. Any publicity is free publicity, right? ) Andrews will direct from a script by Jake Wade Wall.
“Patient Zero” will then lead into “Outbreak”.
Eli Roth directed the first “Cabin Fever” in 2002. It was followed up 7 years later with “Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever” by director Ti West. Both films were bloody good times. With emphasis on the bloody.
