There is lot of buzz surrounding Steven Soderberghâ€™s next movie that already has a great cast. Steven is still putting the final touches on his new film called Knockout. But the word is that he is already readying a cast for his next film. Gwyneth Paltrow is now added to his next feature called Contagion.
The film stars Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard and Jude Law. It is reported that its budget will be around 60 million dollars. The film is told from multiple and intertwined perspectives and revolves around the outbreak of a deadly virus taking place on four continents. This will be something special in store for this film because of the presence of such a cast.
Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns had discussed the idea but it was catalyzed when someone sneezed on the set of The Informant. Someone sneezed and a movie not only goes into production, but it takes priority over Soderberghâ€™s planned biopic of Liberace starring Michael Douglas and Damon. This will be the sixth collaboration of Matt Damon with Steven Soderbergh.
