Cabin Fever reboot will be the exact same script?!

October 21st, 2014 by Marc Comments

Filmmaker Travis Zariwny is currently directing a reboot of Eli Roth’s horror movie Cabin Fever which has just started filming in Portland at the weekend.

The reboot will star 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)… but – and here’s the kicker – it will be based on the exact same script that Eli Roth wrote for his original 2002 movie.

Seriously, at least MOST reboots at least create new scripts…

Roth said: “Travis had an amazing vision for my original script, and as a scary movie fan I really wanted to see it. I almost see this like re-staging a play, and I’m excited to see what ideas Travis and the cast bring to it. They’re all fans of the original and want to make a film that’s a new classic and I believe they will.” 

We have no words. Do with this info what you will…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
