Soderbergh Infects A-List Actors Damon And Winslet In New Outbreak Film

Steven Soderbergh must be awfully excited about his infectious new film Contagion. The director has pushed this flick to the top of his to-do list and snagged some of Hollywood's most prominent actors for his "Traffic meets Outbreak" feature.

The Playlist is reporting that Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Marion Cotillard have all been cast in the new Soderbergh film Contagion.


Soderbergh dreamed up the idea on the set of The Informant with screenwriter Scott Z. Burns, who also penned The Bourne Ultimatum. The idea was based around the theory of how one little sneeze can change the world, and sounds familiar to the director's past work on Traffic. But this time, instead of cocaine, it's a disease.

Sources tell the Playlist that the script is truly terrifying and takes place over four separate continents. Fingers crossed for some good old fashioned Ebola black puke and bloody tears, we missed our plague pictures.
