Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever, which launched the Hostel and The Green Inferno filmmaker’s career in 2002, is getting a remake.

Bloody Disgusting reports that a planned Cabin Fever 4, which would have followed this year’s Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, has been abandoned in favour of a remake, produced by Indomina and Evolution Entertainment.

The attempt to turn Cabin Fever into a franchise has not been an easy road, with Ti West’s Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever re-shot and re-cut without his involvement, leading to a weird mishmash of tones that didn’t seem to please anyone, and Cabin Fever: Patient Zero heading straight to DVD. The first still holds up, which is presumably why attention has been turned back to it…

You can buy Cabin Fever on Blu-ray for £6.37 at Amazon.co.uk.
