"We may or may not get a vaccine for this disease - I can't tell you," Rich King, of Rich King Casting, told the crowd, jokingly calling "Contagion" "the feel-good movie of the summer." "There's a big scene at Candlestick Park where we save or don't save you. I can't tell you."
King told the hopeful extras to expect long days and, unless they were being paid union wages, about $64 for the first eight hours, plus meals.
Filming in San Francisco begins in early February.
