The Steven Soderbergh virus outbreak thriller 'Contagion' may be almost a year away from release but the casting is still happening and is still impressing. Joining the already cast Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Gwyneth Paltrow (below), Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Laurence Fishburne, John Hawkes, Chin Han, Josie Ho and Howie Johnson will be fellow actors Demetri Martin, Jennifer Ehle, Bryan Cranston and Elliott Gould. Soderbergh will be working from a script penned by Scott Z. Burns ('The Bourne Ultimatum')
"As a deadly virus spreads throughout the world, doctors battle to find a cure. But the fear and disinformation that spreads along with the disease proves to be an equally formidable problem." - And if this impressive cast list plus Soderbergh weren't involved I think I would have been totally underwhelmed!
'Contagion' will hit theatres stateside on 21 October 2011.
