Several Infected By Soderbergh’s “Contagion”

Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Marion Cotillard are all close to joining Steven Soderbergh’s viral outbreak thriller “Contagion” reports The Playlist.

Much like the helmer’s “Traffic”, the story follows numerous characters in multiple storylines across several continents with a global viral pandemic being the common element.

Scott Z. Burns (“The Bourne Ultimatum”) penned the action thriller currently being shopped to studios. Filming kicks off in the Fall once Soderbergh finishes work on the ensemble spy thriller “Knockout”.
