CONTAGION With Matt Damon and Kate Winslet To Be in 3-D
The movie CONTAGION starring Matt Damon and Kate Winslet will be filmed in 3-D, announces Access Hollywood. Steven Soderbergh will direct the Warner Brothers film. This will be the first time Matt Damon will act in a 3-D feature.
With a title like “Contagion“, it’s not surprising that the movie is about a contagious disease. A group of doctors from all over the world come together to try to stop it from spreading. The screenplay is being written by Scott Z. Burns.
This newest entry into the post “Avatar” 3-D rush has loads of star power. Gwyneth Paltrow will play Beth Emhoff who is married to Matt Damon (Thomas Emhoff). Kate Winslet will portray Dr. Erin Mears, one of the physicians looking for a cure. She’ll have help from Marion Cotillard (Dr. Leonora Orantes) and Laurence Fishburne (Dr. Ellis Cheever). Jude Law plays blogger Alan Krumwiede. His reporting the news, true or not adds to the drama.
Filming for “Contagion” should begin late this year. Release date is set for October 21, 2011.
