The cast of director Steven Soderbergh's ridiculously huge ensemble for his action-thriller Contagion is getting even bigger. The Playlist reports that Demetri Martin (Taking Woodstock), Jennifer Ehle (The King's Speech), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), and Elliott Gould have joined a cast which already includes Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Laurence Fishburne.
Written by Bourne Ultimatum screenwriter Scott Z. Burns, Contagion follows the spread of a global virus and was originally intended to be shot in 3-D. The report claims that "some technical holdups" have caused Soderbergh to scratch the 3-D plans, though the movie may be converted later.
Shooting on Contagion begins this month in Hong Kong and Chicago, for a scheduled release on October 21, 2011. Posted 09.20.10 by Ryan
Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis are currently shooting their first movie together, Paramount's Dinner for Schmucks, and already the studio has plans to reteam the comedic duo. According to THR, Rudd and Galifianakis will star together in Will, a comedy written by Demetri Martin that was once set up as a DreamWorks project.
In Will, every person's destiny is guided or scripted by heavenly writers. When one heavenly writer (Galifiankis) decides to stop writing, the ordinary guy (Rudd) he was writing for goes off in search of unscripted adventure.
The team of Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton (Little Miss Sunshine) are signed on to direct, with Gary Sanchez producing for Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. Posted 01.13.10 by BrentJS
