The Beautiful People Get Sick
So far, Soderbergh has cast Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Kate Winslet, and Jude Law. Jesus. That's a hell of a cast. I don't really give a damn what the movie's about -- you give me that cast and Soderbergh in the director's chair, and my ticket is already bought. We're talking heavy duty acting and hotness here. No studio is attached yet, but it's hard to believe one won't snap this one up quickly. Shooting begins later this year.
*Update -- I just Googled Contagion, and it is a Robin Cook novel, though it appears to be unrelated to this film. Strange.
