EXCLUSIVE: Nicolas Chartier’s financing, production and sales outfit will present the world premiere screening and kick off sales in Cannes on Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, the first in an anticipated reboot of the horror franchise.
Kaare Andrews shot the film in the Dominican Republic last November from a screenplay by Jake Wade Wall, whose credits include The Hitcher and When A Stranger Calls.
Producer Evan Astrowsky from the original Cabin Fever is currently developing two sequels with Voltage and Dominican Republic-based Indomina.
Sean Astin stars in Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, about a group of friends who arrive on a Caribbean island in search of the perfect scuba dive and find instead a person who has been quarantined with a highly infectious flesh-eating virus. Voltage represents worldwide rights.
Chartier [pictured] and his sales team will be on the Croisette with a slate that includes the action-adventure Testament to be directed by Eric Bress and thriller Home Invasion from producer Joel Silver.
