Alejandro G. Inarritu wins DGA Award for The Revenant, full list of winners here

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For the second year in a row (and the first time they’ve ever handed out back-to-back awards), the Directors Guild of America has honoured Alejandro G. Inarritu with the top prize at the Directors Guild of America Awards, with Inarittu collecting Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for The Revenant.

Inarritu won the DGA Award last year for Birdman, and went on to collect the Best Director award at the Oscars. Should he repeat the feat this year with The Revenant, he’d become only the third director in history to win back-to-back Best Director Academy Awards after John Ford and Joseph Mankiewicz.

And, should The Revenant also win Best Picture, it would be the first time a director has ever won back-to-back Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.

Here’s the full list of winners from last night:

14 of the fakest celebrity retirements in history

5 February 2016 4:54 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s been nearly three years since Steven Soderbergh retired from filmmaking with the release of Side Effects. Then news broke this week that he’s making a film called Logan Lucky starring Channing Tatum. Even those years of retirement from filmmaking weren’t really a retirement: Soderbergh kept busy directing for the small screen, with HBO movie Behind the Candelabra and both season 1 and 2 of Clive Owen show The Knick. But he contended that he was done with projects for the big screen, telling The Hollywood Reporter as recently as this past October, “I don't have an interest in making another theatrical film unless my attitude changes or the business changes.” Well, his attitude must have changed, if we’re to believe reports of this new project with Tatum and Michael Shannon. The Ocean’s Eleven and Traffic director is one of many entertainers to declare they’re retiring, »

Top Stories of the Week: Steven Soderbergh and 'The X-Files' Make Big Returns

5 February 2016 2:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Entire Planet is Watching 'The X-Files' Revival, and That's Terrible News for TV What it boils down to, though, is what makes a TV show a good candidate for revival and what makes a bad one. To some, the difference may be clear. With "The X-Files," the ongoing (and unfinished) conspiracy story combined with its (stellar) episodic "monster of the week" fare makes it an excellent candidate for continued success. As long as Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are back, so are we. Steven Soderbergh Emerges from Retirement Once and For All — With Channing Tatum Soderbergh will make his comeback with "Lucky Logan," according to a story first reported by Variety. No plot synopsis has been revealed, though it is confirmed that Gregory Jacobs is attached to produce and Channing Tatum is on board to star.  Why Everyone’s Wrong About the Second Season of 'Serial' The »

Scott Frank's "Godless" Comes To Netflix

5 February 2016 1:50 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Scott Frank, the writer behind such films as "Minority Report" and "Get Shorty," has revealed on the The Moment podcast (via The Playlist) that his long in the works western project "Godless" is getting a retooling.

Frank has been trying to get the 1888-set tale made as a film for years with the likes of Steven Soderbergh, Sam Mendes and David Fincher all sought at one point or another to take the helm. As it hasn't happened, he's now reconceived the idea into something else - Netflix's first mini-series:

"I had the idea in 2000. And then I started researching it and I wrote it in 2002-3. What I'm doing now is expanding it into six hours. It was a three hour script. And it will be Netflix's first official, in-house, miniseries. I'm directing all six, and the goal is to start shooting sometime in July."

The writer/director has no shortage of terrific credits to his name ("Minority Report," "Out Of Sight," "The Lookout," "Get Shorty"), but for over a decade, he's been looking to get his 1888-set western "Godless" made, in particular convincing directors to take it on, including Steven Soderbergh.

Steven Soderbergh is maybe un-retiring from film directing, possibly for Channing Tatum

4 February 2016 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Steven Soderbergh's retirement from directing films may have come to an end. But the details on which project caught his eye are scarce and still in a bit of flux. Last night, Variety reported that Soderbergh, who proclaimed he was retiring from filmmaking after directing 2013's Side Effects, was returning to film for something called Hillbilly Heist, starring Channing Tatum and Matt Damon. This was Soderbergh's immediate reaction to the news: That Variety story is wrong.

Steven Soderbergh Coming Out of Retirement for Channing Tatum Movie?

4 February 2016 8:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh has been "retired" from directing features since 2013, after he made the thriller Side Effects and the HBO TV movie Behind the Candelabra. Last night, reports from Variety and Deadline surfaced that claimed the filmmaker is coming out of his film directorial retirement with a project entitled Lucky Logan, which reportedly has Channing Tatum and Michael Shannon attached to star.

The original Variety story claimed that the project was actually titled Hillbilly Heist, and that Channing Tatum is starring with Matt Damon. That report was updated/corrected after Deadline revealed that the movie is actually called Lucky Logan, and that the two leads are actually Channing Tatum and Michael Shannon. Regardless of the title and the lead actors, no story details have surfaced, and it isn't known who wrote the screenplay. Variety's sources claim that the director recently got his hands on the screenplay and quickly fell in love with the premise. »

Steven Soderbergh May Cut Film Retirement Short To Direct Channing Tatum In Lucky Logan

4 February 2016 7:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three years since announcing his retirement from feature filmmaking, Traffic director Steven Soderbergh is on the verge of assembling a new theatrical project entitled Lucky Logan.

Variety has the scoop, claiming that both Michael Shannon and Channing Tatum are on board to star, with the latter set to reunite with his Magic Mike director. While it appears that Soderbergh is indeed poised to exit his self-imposed retire from the film industry, conflicting reports have since emerged connecting The Martian‘s Matt Damon with the nascent, mysterious project, one which will reportedly revolve around an Ocean’s 11-styled heist.

Sources close to the outlet initially claimed that the movie was titled Hillbilly Heist, not Lucky Logan, leading Soderbergh to take to Twitter to correct the report via Twitter.

That Variety story is wrong. What a shock.

Soderbergh Ends Retirement For Tatum Movie 'Lucky Logan'

4 February 2016 7:06 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Well, that didn't take long...

Steven Soderbergh, best known for his Ocean's Eleven films, Traffic, and Sex, Lies, & Videotape, went into semi-retirement three years ago. It wasn't a total farewell to Hollywood. Soderbergh claimed he was done directing feature films, specifically. He'd still be around to produce, be a cinematographer, or possibly direct for television, but- for all intents and purposes- his time sitting in the director's chair for a major motion picture was over. 

Yeah, about that..

He's back.

According to Variety, Soderbergh read the script for the upcoming Channing Tatum vehicle Lucky Logan and simply fell in love with it. Between loving the script, and having a great working relationship with Tatum, he's reportedly ready to come out of retirement so that he can direct this film. The pair has previously worked together as actor and director for HaywireSide Effects, and Magic Mike

Soderbergh To Direct Tatum Heist Film?

4 February 2016 5:47 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Having stuck to television and non-directing capacities on films like "Magic Mike Xxl," filmmaker Steven Soderbergh may give up his retirement and return to feature directing for a new film called "Logan Lucky".

Deadline reports that Channing Tatum and Michael Shannon will serve as the leads in the project, though Matt Damon's name has also been linked. Of the trio, Damon is the only name confirmed at this point.

The project is being dubbed a hillbilly take on "Ocean's 11" and will involve a heist during a Nascar-syle race. The script is being shopped around the studios this week ahead of filming this Fall.

Mark Johnson and Gregory Jacobs will produce. Soderbergh says he'll reveal more about the film shortly, and not in the way you'd expect. He tweeted: "Rest assured, all will be revealed when I give my exclusive, no-holds-barred interview with Catster magazine. You think I'm kidding. »
