[Movies] Contagion Could Get a TV Adaptation
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.01.2013



Steven Soderbergh's 2011 thriller Contagion could be headed to the small screen in the form of a television series. The outbreak-themed film, which was a hit for Warner Bros., was rumored to have a sequel in the work but nothing has come of that. Now, screenwriter Scott Z. Burns tells CS.net that the film could become a TV show.

"We've been talking about turning it into a TV series and I think it may have a life there," said Burns. "It has some of the properties inherently like Homeland and 24 where you can really explore outbreaks and pandemics in interesting ways. Like this story, they take you to unexpected places, whether it's drug companies or governments or scientists or people with political agendas. All of these things, once they're out there, can be coopted from a lot of different angles."

As to whether he had ideas that they could use which didn't fit into the film, Burns noted, "That movie had an almost fractal kind of quality for me as a writer because anytime I looked at a business or a character, when it's something like a virus, it changes everything. If you have a date with somebody and they're sick and now you don't go out with them to business men who don't get on planes and don't go to meetings, so certain things don't happen. It becomes a causal agent for a whole bunch of plot."
