Marvel Comics' writer and artist Kaare Andrews has signed on to direct the upcoming feature films "Cabin Fever: Patient Zero" and "Cabin Fever: Outbreak". Casting is now underway for at least 8 lead roles and several smaller roles ranging from early 20s males and females to 30s and 40ish males. Shooting will take place beginning late April 2012 in the Dominican Republic, however casting for the main roles is taking place in Los Angeles. Extras, stand-ins, and photo doubles will be cast in Santo Domingo. Both films will be shot back-to-back.
In addition to being a comic book writer and artist, Kaare Andrews is also a filmmaker who has directed several short films, and the Anchor Bay Entertainment full length feature film "Altitude". Known for his cover work on "Incredible Hulk," "Ultimate X-Men, Gen," "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Matrix Comics," Andrews drew a four-issue mini-series for Marvel known as "Spider-Man: Reign" set 35 years in the future starring a retired Spider-Man. He is currently drawing covers for Marvel’s recently relaunched Ultimate line of comics.
Jake Wade Wall ("The Hitcher," "When Strangers Call") wrote the screenplay for "Cabin Fever: Patient Zero" which is about the origin of the flesh-eating virus that was unleashed in the 2002 original. The story follows a handsome American man named Marcus, who is on a floating bachelor party with his close friends, Dobs, Josh and Penny. But his yacht drifts a little too close to an island that's not on the charts, an island containing a secret research project into a seemingly incurable flesh-eating virus. The first drafts of the screenplay had a storyline involving a cruise ship being infected with the virus, however the story was changed after the recent cruise ship mishaps going on in the news lately.
"Cabin Fever: Outbreak" is being written by Adam and Deborah Marcus ("Leatherface 3D," "I Walked With a Zombie"). In this film a doctor and his family travel to a remote Caribbean island to investigate a minor flu outbreak, only to discover a vicious flesh-eating virus that threatens everyone on the island. The family is faced with responsibility to prevent a worldwide epidemic.
"Patient Zero" and "Outbreak" is being produced by Evan Astrowsky's Hypotenuse Pictures and Jasbinder Singh Mann of the Indomina Group, a fast-growing United States and Dominican Republic based production company and distributor of film, TV and trans-media content, and leading proponent of "fanboy" cinema.
The original 2002 Cabin Fever film was directed by Eli Roth, who wrote the screenplay based on a real life experience during a trip to Iceland when Roth developed a skin infection. "Cabin Fever" went on to become one of the most successful independently-financed film releases of 2003, grossing $33,553,394 at the box office worldwide for distributor Lions Gate.
"Cabin Fever: Patient Zero" is scheduled to hit theaters 2013, and "Cabin Fever: Outbreak" comes to theaters in 2014.

To Be Cast
"Cabin Fever: Patient Zero"
Marcus Bently is an alluring, suntanned, physically strapping young American man who who's passion for sailing and diving inspired him to open a business leading undersea diving adventures with his best buddy, Dobs Towe. Marcus goes to the Dominican Republic because he falls in love with an heiress of a wealthy family, Catalina Arias, with whom he intends to marry - albeit with a slight case of cold feet. Catalina sets up a lavish bachelor party for Marcus and his friends aboard a luxury yacht, which ends up floating too close to an uncharted island. The island is a scientific research facility run by an inhumane Dr. Edwards, who is intent on finding a vaccine for a flesh-eating virus that could strip humanity literally down to the bones. Marcus and his friends must find a way to survive before the flesh eating disease consumes them all.
