The Playlist is reporting that Steven Soderbergh (Ocena’s Eleven, The Informant!) has delayed all projects in order to fast-track Contagion. The plague thriller penned by Scott Z. Burns (The Informant!) is set to go behind cameras this fall with Matt Damon, Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard all signed on to star. Details are slim but the film is said to be an “action-thriller about the outbreak of a deadly virus.” Variety adds that the project “ is described as centering on a deadly disease with multiple plotlines in the same style as Soderbergh’s Traffic.”
