It seems Paramount Vantage gave this film a limited release in 2007 and it's been languishing since, why I ask? Well it's getting some attention at AFM, but not domestically so hopefully there will be an English friendly DVD release sometime in the future as the plot sounds great.

"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 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."

one imagines that many of the bigger studios are holding their cards to see how The Road will do in the big markets. If The Road connects, expect a flood of PA melodramas, which are mostly inferior and also-rans.
But I DO hope this one makes it to the screen, because I always appreciate the storylines that use the "confused and scared people escaping" instead of the "let's go kick some zombie ass!" type fare.

Ever seen the classic NO BLADE OF GRASS? Sounds like MONSANTO's GMO's.

This film also stars Chris Pine who is playing Kirk in the March release of Star Trek. That would be good timing to ride the publicity wave.
