There hasn't been much to report on Bruce Willis' upcoming sci-fi thriller Surrogates until now. The production companies, Touchstone and Walt Disney, are looking to launch a new campaign on their film, which hits theaters this September. While getting prepared to unleash the film at the New York Comic Con on Saturday, the studio has launched a new viral website called ChooseYourSurrogate.com, which is based around the fictional company that creates the surrogates in the film.

The film stars Bruce Willis, Radha Mitchell, Rosamund Pike, James Francis Ginty, Boris Kodjoe and Ving Rhames. Director Jonathan Mostow led production, based on a screenplay by Michael Ferris and John Brancato.
Plot Summary: FBI agents (Bruce Willis and Radha Mitchell) investigate the mysterious murder of a college student linked to the man who helped create a high-tech surrogate phenomenon that allows people to purchase unflawed robotic versions of themselves—fit, good looking remotely controlled machines that ultimately assume their life roles—enabling people to experience life vicariously from the comfort and safety of their own homes. The murder spawns a quest for answers: in a world of masks, who's real and who can you trust?
Surrogates will hit theaters September 25, 2009.
