Listen up, horror fans -- some casting news has been announced for the sequel to Eli Roth'sCabin Fever, which will be directed by Ti West. According to Bloody-disgusting.com, Larry Fessenden, an actor which credits such as Trigger Man, Headspace and The Roost on his resume, will have a small role in the film. Further details are available about his part at Bloody-disgusting, but be prepared to find spoilers if you go there. In other casting news, actress Alexi Wasser has joined the film. Wasser is best known for films such as Art School Confidential and Factory Girl.
For those who still haven't seen the original film and have no idea what the fuss is all about, the first one dealt with a group of college graduates who are stuck in a remote cabin and have to deal with the effects of a flesh-eating virus. Eli Roth has no known involvement in the sequel, but did produce a 2004 documentary called Cabin Fever: Beneath the Skin, in which the cast and crew talked about the making of the film and how the special effects were created. Roth is hard at work on finishing up Hostel: Part II -- to read about all of his other upcoming plans, you can check out Erik's report from this weekend's NYComicCon.
