IFC Midnight has bought the North American rights to the reboot of Eli Roth’s ‘Cabin Fever’. Roth will be executive producing the rehash of the horror comedy, which Travis Z. will direct. The reboot will follow the same plot as the original film, centering around a group of college graduates who contract a flesh-eating virus when they rent a cabin in the woods.
Travis Z. said “It was a great opportunity to recreate an iconic film for a new generation of horror fans.”
Gage Golightly (Teen Wolf), Dustin Ingram (True Blood), Samuel Davis, Matthew Daddario and Nadine Crocker will star in the reboot. The film is expected to hit theaters in 2016.
