Now that Steven Soderbergh's film has a talented cast lined up, a distributor was sure to follow. Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that Warner Bros. will distribute Soderbergh's outbreak film Contagion.
The film will star Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Gwenyth Paltrow and Marion Cotillard and, while plot details are being held under wraps, the film was said to center on a disease that spreads quickly throughout the world, with several storylines in place that will connect seemingly random characters.
Scott Z. Burns, who wrote the screenplay for Soderbergh's last film, The Informant, is writing Contagion for Soderbergh to direct. Participant Media is co-financing the $60 million film and filming was said to start later this year.
