Damon, Law set for 'Contagion;' Winslet and Cotillard in talks

Marion Cotillard and Kate Winslet are in talks to join Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion.”

Matt Damon and Jude Law are set for the action-thriller.

Soderbergh’s been developing the project with producing partner Gregory Jacobs. Participant Media is in talks to co-finance and produce. Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher of Double Feature Films are also producing.

The plan is to shoot the project later this year.

“Contagion,” based on a script penned by Scott Z. Burns, revolves around the threat posed by a deadly disease, with multiple plotlines in the style of Soderbergh’s “Traffic.”
