Gwyneth Paltrow is ready to go back to playing characters who don't die in the first act.
The "Contagion" victim must be feeling all better, as she's signed on to appear in the sex addiction comedy, "Thanks For Sharing," according to Variety.
"Thanks For Sharing" follows a group of unlikely friends brought together after completing a 12-step program for sex addition. Gwyneth will play Phoebe, a successful businesswoman who falls for one of the recovering addicts, played by Paltrow's "Avengers" co-star, Mark Ruffalo.
Hmm... Pepper Potts hooking up with Bruce Banner? We can sort of see it.
The cast also includes Tim Robbins and Joely Richardson, who will play a couple whose marriage is probably rather tumultuous. "Thanks For Sharing" marks the directorial debut of Stuart Blumberg, who recently scored an Oscar nomination for his (rather awesome) screenplay for "The Kids Are All Right."
Gwyneth Paltrow will die of a horrible virus (that's not a spoiler; it's revealed in the trailer, 'cause that's how Steven Soderbergh rolls) in "Contagion," opening Sept. 9. She'll be reprising her "Iron Man" role of Pepper Potts in "The Avengers," opening May 4, 2012, and is expected to play the part again in "Iron Man 3," which currently set for May 3, 2013.
