‘Contagion’ Update Includes Gwyneth Paltrow?!

Published

on

Last week some news flew out of left field as it was announced that Steven Soderbergh would be fast-tracking a new virus thriller entitled Contagion with mega-stars Matt Damon, Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard all already in talks to star. Deadline has an update from EFM: “I hear that Gwyneth Paltrow now is joining his cast that already includes Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard and Jude Law. The Scott Z. Burns-scripted film — about the attempt to contain a deadly viral outbreak — came with Participant Media ready to co-finance. Contagion carries a $60 million budget, and I’m told several bidders have offered greenlight commitments.” It’ll be weird to see all these huge stars that I can’t stand starring in a serious 28 Days Later-esque thriller; can we trade down, please? It’s rare to see stars of such caliber starring in a horror flick, so this could be interesting.
