Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have signed to appear in Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, his follow up to the US box-office topper Erin Brockovich. The film is based on the 1989 British miniseries, which starred the slightly less famous Bill Paterson and Lindsay Duncan. The film is about an international drug smuggling ring, and its effects on the people involved. Douglas will play a judge, who is also the head of a drug cartel, and Zeta-Jones plays a well-off woman who becomes a smuggler. Benicio Del Toro and Don Cheadle are close to signing to appear as DEA agents.
