First Look Pic At Sanaa Lathan In Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion"

Aha! I thought she was in this movie, even though she’s absolutely nowhere to be found in the trailer, nor the posters, or any of the other marketing materials for the film that have been released thus far…

Until now anyway. Behold, Sanaa Lathan in a still from Steven Soderbergh’s ensemble action-thriller Contagion, about an international team of doctors hired by the CDC to prevent the global outbreak of a deadly virus.

Ok so her role likely isn’t a major one in the film; I know she plays Laurence Fishburne’s wife – Dr. and Mrs. Cheever – but can’t tell you how involved she is in the plot. Fishburne clearly is a headliner though.

I guess we’ll find out when the film opens September 9th.

@Yolanda it is a damn shame. Especially since her character does something pivotal to the plot of the movie!!!!


I remember six or seven years ago Sanaa Lathan was on her way to become an A list actress she got high profile roles in Out of Time, Alien Vs Predator, Love & Basketball and Something New. Suddenly in 2007, Sanaa’s career cooled off I read an article on line Sanaa is very selective and has turned down high profile roles. I would love to see Sanaa get a huge role she’s talented enough to headline another film.
