Steven Soderbergh Brings us Contagion

Despite the fact that director Steven Soderbergh has his Liberace biopic lined up to shoot with Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, and despite the fact that he's right in the middle of shooting his martial arts movie Knockout, he's lined up his next project: the Scott Burns script Contagion. Apparently this is going to be a terrifying movie.

The cast for it is looking terrifyingly good, too: Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard and Jude Law. Bam! And while you're chewing on that, chew on this:

An action-thriller about the outbreak of a deadly virus, from what we've heard, Burns' script is a multi-strand film not unlike the Academy award-winning Traffic that Soderbergh helmed in 2000. Our sources tell us the story takes place over four continents and is "terrifying."

This sounds like a seriously awesome movie, and under the aegis of Soderbergh you know it's not going to be the typical virus-zombie-horror bullcrap. This is going to be heavy-duty cinema.

The bigger question is whether he's ever going to have time to knock out Liberace. Seems like he constantly comes across projects he's got to do first. Did he agree to do the biopic for a friend and is now wishing he hadn't? Is he looking for excuses to not do it?

Whatever his reasons are, it looks like we're going to get a good Knockout and Contagion before we get any movies about gay pianists. What are you going to do?
