Who needs an ensemble romantic comedy when you can have an equally star-studded action thriller? Steven Soderbergh has lined up three Oscar winners — and one nominee (sorry, Jude) — for his upcoming film, Contagion. Matt Damon and Jude Law are already on board, while the lovely Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard are circling the project.
Contagion focuses on the posing threat of a deadly virus, telling the story through multiple arcs and plot lines (think Traffic meets Outbreak). Even if the premise sounds a bit stale, the ridiculously talented cast is more than enough to get me worked up about this one — especially since we know how well Jude Law and Matt Damon play off each other (just think The Talented Mr. Ripley).
