Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Scout Taylor-Compton come together for a new thriller called Tag, also starring Jonathan Lipnicki, Traci Lords and Cerina Vincent. And, inside, you can see the very first trailer.
It should be noted that this is no relation to a supernatural thriller called Tag directed by Sam Walker that’s due next year.
Here’s the synopsis that’s currently being used for the film, directed by Danny Roth: Billy is the self-designated leader of a group of teenagers living in a shelter. Jacob and Rae, Billy’s oldest childhood friends, live there as well as part of “the family”. Billy has an AIDs-like virus, which he has passed on to his blood brother Jacob. Billy and Rae are boyfriend and girlfriend, much to the dismay of Jacob who has always loved Rae from afar. Billy’s philosophy of life, and how that interfaces with having a deadly virus, comes to a head when Billy and Jacob compete in a very unique game of “Tag”, with the future of Rae and “the family” dependent upon the outcome.
