Contagion sequel might mutate into TV series

Though Contagion director Steven Soderbergh is eager to retire from filmmaking, screenwriter Scott Z. Burns keeps cooking up ways for them to keep working together.


While promoting their latest collaboration, Side Effects, Burns told Coming Soon that Contagion may have some (half) life left it in it.

“We’ve been talking about turning it into a TV series and I think it may have a life there… It has some of the properties inherently like Homeland and 24 where you can really explore outbreaks and pandemics in interesting ways.”

What’s most exciting about this news is Soderbergh recently told Vulture that he’d “do a TV series if something great were to come along.”

This could be that thing!
