CABIN FEVER Remake Begins Production, Using Same Script

Well this is just odd.  A remake of CABIN FEVER is set to begin production shortly.  But that's not the odd part.  Apparently, they're using the same script from Eli Roth's 2002 original film.
Eli Roth’s 2002 horror comedy Cabin Fever is getting a remake, with the original movie’s writer-director Roth returning as executive producer. He won’t have to do much writing this time, though: The plan is to use the exact same Roth-Randy Pearlstein script that was shot in 2002, and with a cast already moved in, it puts the project on the fast track. Shooting begins this week in Portland, OR.
I guess I sort of understand it.  A new script might as well just be another sequel.  But on the other hand, it's not like the 2002 film was an origin story or anything.  Oh well.  It should be nice to have Roth back, nevertheless.
