Lydia Hearst Joins “Cabin Fever” Prequel

Lydia Hearst has joined the cast of Kaare Andrews’ horror prequel/reboot “Cabin Fever: Patient Zero” at Indomina says Heat Vision.

The story kicks off when a bachelor party cruise in the Caribbean unexpectedly runs ashore on a medical-research island and a deadly virus is unleashed. The passengers must struggle to find a way to survive before their own demons and the flesh-eating bacteria consumes them all.

Lydia will play a wide-eyed research grad student who is aligned with the film’s antagonist (Sean Astin). Mitch Ryan, Brano Eaton, Gillian Murray and Ryan Donowho also star.

Shooting kicks off mid-October in the Dominican Republic.
