In the new episode of the podcast Happy. Sad. Confused. director Steven Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Burns said they have already begun work on a sequel to the disaster film Contagion.
Burns and I already have a project in the works – this is a philosophical continuation of “Contagion”, but in a different context. You will see both familiar features and new ones.
“Contagion” was released in 2011, but the film gained extraordinary popularity only this year due to the coronavirus. The plot of the tape is dedicated to an epidemic that suddenly swept the whole world, and some scenario moves are very similar to current events.
Scientists also took part in the creation of the picture, who warned the film crew that such a scenario of a mass pandemic in the real world was only a matter of time. The performer of one of the main roles Jude Law told about this in GQ magazine .
According to Warner Bros., the movie became one of the most watched online services during the quarantine in March this year. He also proved to be the leader among the pirates.
