NEW YORK -- Reports of Rider Strong's death in the horror film "Cabin Fever" have been exaggerated. Strong's character, Paul, is alive and well and living in fear of his life in the sequel, "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever".

Giuseppe Andrews returns as the oddball Deputy Winston, who dumped the ill Paul In a stream at the end of the 2003 original. In the Lionsgate sequel, the killer virus comes out of the woods and has a date at the high school prom.

Producers Lauren Moews of Tonic Films, John Sachar and Patrick Durham have recruited an eccentric new trio for director Ti West's follow-up to Eli Roth's comedic gorefest. Comedian Judah Friedlander (NBC's "30 Rock") plays the Down Home Water security guard. Mark Borchardt ("American Movie") portrays Winston's cousin from Wombusaw, and fellow cult actor-director Larry Fessenden ("Habit") plays an ill-fated water truck driver.

Noah Segan ("Brick"), Alexi Wasser ("Factory Girl"), Marc Senter (the upcoming "I Know Who Killed Me") and Rusty Kelley play new potential victims.
