He may have announced his retirement – albeit a temporary one – from filmmaking, but Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh has not been resting on his laurels. Having delivered the critically acclaimed TV movie Behind The Candelabra, and the equally well-received TV series The Knick, The Girlfriend Experience, and Red Oaks, Soderbergh has turned his attentions to Netflix, where he will stream his latest producing project, Godless.

Slowly but surely, casting is really beginning to heat up on Godless, the all-new Western in the works as a Netflix limited series.
Headed up by Steven Soderbergh and Scott Frank – the pair last collaborated on Out of Sight – we brought you the news two weeks ago that up-and-comer Jack O’Connell had closed a deal to star, and now Deadline is reporting that Jeff Daniels and Scoot McNairy of Batman V Superman have their eyes set on the Wild West.
No mention of which roles Daniels and McNairy are in contention for – we assume one or the other will step into the dusty shoes of Frank Griffin – but it’s understood that should both stars put pen to paper, they’ll be bound for a remote New Mexico mining town in the 1800s.

Steven Soderbergh (Behind the Candelabra) and Scott Frank are behind the new show which is reportedly set in 1884 and “centers on Frank Griffin, a menacing outlaw who is terrorizing the West as he hunts down Roy Goode, his son-like partner-turned-mortal enemy. While Roy hides at Alice Fletcher’s ranch, Frank’s chase leads him to the quiet town of La Belle — that is mysteriously made up of entirely women.”
Frank, the screenwriter behing Get Shorty, Minority Report and Soderbergh’s Out of Sight, is penning the script and directing, and will also executive produce with Soderbergh and Casey Silver. O’Connell, who appeared in Channel 4’s Skins, will take the lead role of Roy.

Before he was clad in opulent armor for 300: Rise of an Empire, few moviegoers would have recognized the name Jack O’Connell on any given casting docket. That all changed thanks to a starring role in Angelina Jolie’s wartime drama Unbroken, and since then, the English actor has been snapping up roles left, right and center.
Adding another feather to that proverbial cap today, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that O’Connell has been tapped for Godless, Steven Soderbergh’s new Western series that recently found a home at Netflix. THR confirms that O’Connell will headline the series as Roy Goode, an “injured outlaw on the run from his former boss.” It’s certainly a major project for O’Connell to be involved in, particularly considering that the actor’s TV credits up until now have only included Skins and The Runaway.
