Jude Law Is In A Bubble In Contagion Set Photos
Contagion, the Steven Soderbergh-directed thriller about a virus outbreak, is hugely anticipated by film nerds for the cast alone. Doing the impossible and one-upping his star-studded Ocean's films, Soderbergh's got a cast that includes Jude Law, Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, John Hawkes, Laurence Fishburne, Bryan Cranston and, because why not, Elliott Gould. It's a cast so gigantic and great that it almost doesn't matter whether or not the movie is any good, but because Soderbergh is directing you can expect it to be that too.
The movie is now shooting in San Francisco, and Just Jared snapped some pictures for the set; they use the opportunity to write a piece about Jude Law's breakup with Sienna Miller, but we're more interested, of course, in the hazard suit they've got him wearing. It looks inflated from the inside and totally intense, which makes sense for a movie about a deadly and contagious virus. It also, if you'll forgive me, looks a little silly. Will it look better onscreen? Probably. But I might run with the theory that Soderbergh is making a parody of virus movies like Outbreak, and therefore is making the suits a little out-there. Hey, with the movie still fairly far from release, we've got to do something to handle the anticipation.
