“Patient Zero” is up first, with “Altitude” director Kaare Andrews behind the camera, with Sean Astin (“Lord of the Rings” franchise, “The Goonies”), Brando Eaton (“Balls Out: Gary the Tennis Coach,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel,” “Born to Race”) and Ben Hollingsworth (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules,” “The Joneses”) in front of the camera.
The plot of “Patient Zero” finds a bachelor party cruise in the Caribbean unexpectedly running ashore on a medical research island, where 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.
“Patient Zero” will shoot on location in the Dominican Republic, which is where the second film, “Cabin Fever: Outbreak” will also be film.
Jake Wade Wall (“The Hitcher,” “When a Stranger Calls”) wrote the “Patient Zero” screenplay.
