Is CONTAGION spreading to TV?

Some interesting news has come our way about the possibility of a Contagion TV series. Read below for all the details.

Screenwriter Scott Z. Burns penned Contagion. The film  proved to be an even bigger hit for Warner Bros. than some predicted, opening with $22.4 million in a slow post-Labor Day weekend and grossing $140 million globally. Not bad for a viral infection flick eh?

The rumor was that Burns wanted to take the film and make a sequel to it. Now it seems that sequel, is in fact a TV series.

Earlier today ComingSoon.net, caught up with Burns and they asked him about the rumored show.

“We’ve been talking about turning it into a TV series and I think it may have a life there,” he told the site. “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 co-opted from a lot of different angles.”

Well, here’s hoping we see this show sooner than later.
