Paramount Vantage has been sitting on its epidemic themed thriller Carriers for somewhere in the neighborhood of about four years. Now the flick is showing signs of seeing the light of day, starting with a new one-sheet!
We’re positive the decision to finally release the film doesn’t have anything to do with the success of Star Trek, which also features Carriers star Chris Pine who played Kirk. Not at all. I guess you could say one good thing can lead to another?
Check out the poster after the break courtesy of Blairwitch.de. Look for the film, which co-stars Lou Taylor Pucci, Piper Perabo, and Emily VanCamp, to hit theatres on September 4, 2009!
“A deadly virus has spread across the globe. Contagion is everywhere, no one is safe, and no one can be trusted. Four young attractive people race through the back roads of the American West to the pounding beat of a vacation soundtrack. Their aim is to retreat to a secluded Utopian beach in the Gulf of Mexico, where they could peacefully wait out the pandemic and survive the apocalyptic disease. Carriers follow their getaway through a surreal and dangerous world where laws and rules no longer apply.
Their plans take a grim turn when their car breaks down on an isolated road, starting a chain of events that will seal the fate of each of them in an inexorable and horrifying voyage of hell through a western landscape populated by only the hideous dead or the twisted living. Their desperate retreat south turns into a deadly battle against infected children, homicidal doctors, crazed survivalists, rabid dogs, and finally, each other. The virus is the least of their problems as horrible choices must be made in the face of lost humanity.”
