Warner Brothers Infected by Soderberg’s “Contagion”

Well. That didn’t take very long at all, did it? Who would have thought that a movie directed by Steven Soderberg that will feature Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, and Matt Damon would be acquired so quickly by a big studio?!?

Deadline|Hollywood reports tonight that after a truly heavy bidding war with several different studios including the likes of the Twilight cash-infused Summit Entertainment, Warner Brothers were the one’s who won the cinema prize and they can now proudly call the upcoming film Contagion theirs.

As stated before details concerning the film’s plot aren’t in abundance, but we do know that the story centers on an outbreak of a deadly disease and that the film will have many different plot strings just like Soderberg’s award-winning effort Traffic.
