IFC Midnight announced that it has bought North American rights to Travis Z’s “Cabin Fever,” a reboot of Eli Roth’s thriller of the same name, for a 2016 release.

The script for the reboot was written by Roth and Randy Pearlstein, based on a story by Roth. It stars Gage Golightly, Matthew Daddario, Samuel Davis, Nadine Crocker and Dustin Ingram.

Producers are Evan Astrowsky, Christopher Lemole and Tim Zajaros. Exec producers are Roth, Cassian Elwes, Jerry Fruchtman, Peter Fruchtman and Ike and Jaclyn Suri.

The film follows a group of five college graduates who rent a cabin in the woods and fall victim to a flesh-eating virus that attracts the unwanted attention of the homicidal locals.

The original movie premiered at the 2002 Toronto Film Festival and wound up grossing $30 million worldwide.

The deal was negotiated with WME Global on behalf of the filmmakers.
