British actor Jude Law said that experts warned the film crew while working on “Contagion” (2011) that a pandemic similar to the one in the film is inevitable, THR reports.

“We had a complete feeling that this is how it will be in reality. With screenwriter Scott Burns and Director Steven Soderbergh working with reputable scientists, they knew what they were talking about. They assured us that all this would happen sooner or later. The only question was when” the actor shared.

According to him, experts described the possible situation of the pandemic quite plausibly: “It’s scary when you learn about it from specialists, you don’t want to accept it.”

Law also explained that the film itself scared him a lot, but he calmed down after a while.

“At the beginning of 2020, when the first information began to appear about what happened in China and how the virus began to spread, I immediately realized what these alarm bells were. Unfortunately, I wasn’t too surprised,” the actor added.

In the thriller about humanity’s struggle with a lethal-virus, he played a major role – blogger Alan Krumwiede.

The film also stars Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard, Gwyneth Paltrow, and other actors.
