CHAMELEON Trailer: Crime Thriller Starts With a Haircut
When was the last time you got a good haircut? (No, I am not channeling my father.)
In the suggestive, somewhat mysterious new trailer for Chameleon, we see someone cutting his own hair in a mirror. (Why didn't I ever think of that?) Given the title of the film, it's easy to presume that this character is not doing his own grooming because he just can't take the ungainly accumulation of hair on his head.
No, he is definitely disreputable in some way, a thought that is confirmed in the balance of the trailer, and also in the official synopsis:
"Chameleon tells the story of two ex-cons who scam L.A. trophy wives and their rich older husbands. Recently released ex-con Patrick is unable to find a legitimate opportunity to get ahead and stumbles back into a life of crime when unpredictable Dolph, whom he owes for protection while in prison, pays him a visit.
"Patrick and Dolph begin a series of scams that involve seducing and kidnapping Los Angeles trophy wives in order to extort money from their wealthy husbands. But their latest victim, Rebecca, is not who she seems. Rebecca threatens to ruin everything just when Patrick has had a change of heart and is ready to call it quits."
Written and directed by Marcus Mizelle, the film features an ensemble cast including Joel Hogan, Donald Prabatah, Alicia Leigh Willis, Jeff Prater, Acelina Kuchukova, Daniel Tolbert, Fernanda Hay, Allison Rose Williams, and Andrew Golov.
The film's North American rights have been acquired by Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen's Entertainment Studios. Chameleon will be available to rent and own on DVD and North American digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms through Freestyle Digital Media on May 19, 2020.
