The Toronto-based distributor and sales agent has picked up Canadian rights to Cabin Fever: Patient Zero.

The film stems from the horror franchise created by Eli Roth. Kaare Andrews directs from a screenplay by Jake Wade Wall.

Sean Astin, Currie Graham, Ryan Donowho, Brando Eaton and Jillian Murray star in the story of a Caribbean cruise ship that collides with an abandoned research vessel containing a virus.

Raven Banner plans to release Cabin Fever: Patient Zero early this year in 28 theatres across Canada as part of its Sinister Cinema series with partners Cineplex Entertainment. 

Raven Banner negotiated the deal with Voltage Pictures.
