Stars line up for Soderbergh project

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.”

Soderbergh currently is lensing “Knockout” for Relativity Media. Project stars Antonio Banderas, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor and martial arts champ Gina Carano.
