Repo Men, which stars Jude Law, Forest Whitaker and Liev Schreiber, will arrive in theaters on April 2 and, due to the nature of the film, an innovative contest has been launched. In the film, these title characters hunt down those who haven't paid for their high-priced artificial organs and Universal Pictures has launched a new contest where contestants have to actually go on the run from people chasing them as well. Take a look at the full press release for all the details below.
Lone Shark Games, in conjunction with Wired Magazine and Universal Pictures, is looking for a few creative, honest, adventurous people to go on the run starting in late February. You need to be available through late March to leave your regular life behind. (If you are chosen, we will give you exact dates.)
Evan Ratliff made it in 25 days... Can you do better? (Wired.com/Vanish) Starting later this month, a few select individuals will get that chance.
We will provide you with vital technology and seed money to get you through your month on the run. Your creativity and wits will have to get you whatever else you need for life on the run. If you're chosen, you will get $2,500 over the course of the run, and an additional $7,500 if you make it to the end without being caught. But people will be trying to find you, and they'll use any means allowed in the rules to try to figure out where you are. For now, send us an application, then scan your city for clues.
