A new trailer for John Lechago's 'Bio Slime' has arrived online. Uh-oh, no wait, scratch that - 'Bio Slime' has become 'Contagion'. The potentially unneccesary re-titling was done to help "appease international buyers at the American Film Market". Not quite sure that works especially as director Steven Soderbergh ('Traffic', 'Ocean's Eleven', 'Solaris') already has an action-thriller of the same name lined up for next year with big hitter stars such as Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet and Jude Law all currently filming. You'll just have to make do with hotties like Monique La Barr and Victoria De Mare (whom appears topless in the flick - seen below). Anyhoo the name change will stick and 'Contagion' will ooze across the oceans very soon and you can check out the new trailer below.
Here's what Lechago had to say on the matter:
"The switch was made at the Cannes film market earlier this year. "Since then, CONTAGION was offered as the alternative title for the international market, and every buyer seemed to prefer that one," Lechago tells us. "We are making a point to include 'John Lechago's' in the title--not because of my raging ego, but because there are actually a few movies out there called CONTAGION, including one coming up from Steven Soderbergh. Sorry, Steven!"
Pretty sure 'Steven' won't mind however taking into account that Lechago's movie won't be anywhere in the same league.
The John Lechago written and directed ooze-fest stars Vinnie Bilancio, Victoria De Mare, Ronnie Lewis, Kelli Kaye, Gia Paloma, Magic J. Ellingson, Micol Bartolucci, Al Burke, Monique La Barr and Tai Chan Ngo.
