3 Needles stars Lucy Liu, Chloe Sevigny, Shawn Ashmore, Sandra Oh, Stockard Channing, Sook-Yin Lee and Olympia Dukakis. Directed by Thom Fitzgerald (The Hanging Garden). 3 Needles opens in the U.S., Singapore, and Australia on Friday, December 1, 2006 in conjunction with World AIDS Day.
We all face a common enemy. 3 Needles tells three stories from the global AIDS crisis.
– In China, a black market blood collection scheme causes an outbreak in a rural village.
– In Montreal, a porn actor (Ashmore) hides his HIV status leading his family down a shocking path.
– And, in Africa, a novice nun (Sevigny) makes a desperate sacrifice to protect the health of plantation workers.
IMPORTANT: For every person who adds the 3 Needles Myspace page as a friend before Dec. 1, 10 cents will be donated towards fighting the African AIDS crisis.
Check out the 3 Needles trailer and a special !! omg blog !! exclusive production still after the jump. I’ll give you a hint: it involves Shawn Ashmore’s butt, but is safe for work.
