Steven Soderbergh Could Have Directed A Bond Film

14 July 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hollywood history is full of what-ifs. What if Tom Selleck had played Indiana Jones? What if Edgar Wright got to direct Ant-Man (that one still stings)? What if Steven Soderbergh directed a James Bond film? That last one comes to us courtesy of a Q&A at Nitehawk Cinema, following a screening of Haywire, when Soderbergh revealed that he had been approached to direct a James Bond movie more than once, but it never got off the ground.

Here’s what the director had to say:

Over the years, I’ve been in conversations…I’ve been approached twice about doing a Bond film. And it never quite got anywhere. And [‘Haywire’] in some ways, was my opportunity to do what I would do with a Bond movie.

The little tidbit was dropped in the midst of a discussion about Haywire and Soderbergh’s attempts to get a sequel (and even a TV show) made, »

Soderbergh Talks Bond & A "Kafka" Retooling

13 July 2016 5:01 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After a several year break, Steven Soderbergh is returning to the movies with two projects currently in the works - "Mosaic" and the heist comedy "Logan Lucky". He also spoke at a retrospective screening of his action thriller "Haywire" this week and revealed that he's been asked to be involved in the James Bond series - and not just one time. He tells The Playlist:

"Over the years, I've been in conversations… I've been approached twice about doing a Bond film. And it never quite got anywhere. And ['Haywire'] in some ways, was my opportunity to do what I would do with a Bond movie."

It was a rushed opportunity though. The filmmaker had assembled a crew to shoot "Moneyball" but was then fired from the project. Not wanting to let his crew down, he scrambled to assemble another film which was when he saw "Haywire" star Gina Carano in an »

13 July 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Steven Soderbergh’s sabbatical from making movies is officially over. While he took a detour into television with “The Knick,” the director has two films in the works: “Mosaic,” an experimental project over at HBO (which may not quite resemble a film in the end and could be a kind of a series), and the Nascar heist […]

Steven Soderbergh Reportedly Plotting Return To Feature Filmmaking With Channing Tatum

4 February 2016 5:32 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Here's an example of what happens when trades rush out to report a story, in a desire to be first, but no one has their ducks in a row. Last night, a flurry of information hit the web about a supposed return to feature filmmaking for Steven Soderbergh, but no one seems to know exactly what it is, for what sounds like a project that's very much in flux. Read More: Steven Soderbergh Talks 'Mosaic,' 'Kafka,' & Plans To Still Make 'The Sot-Weed Factor' First, Variety reported that Soderbergh would helm "Hillbilly Heist," a movie that would star Channing Tatum and Matt Damon.

Watch: 9-Minute Video Essay About Steven Soderbergh's Debut Feature Film 'Sex, Lies, And Videotape'

15 January 2016 12:51 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before he captivated television audiences with (in this author’s humble opinion) one of the greatest television shows ever made — the pulsating, sensuous “The Knick” — Steven Soderbergh began something of an indie revolution with his debut film “Sex, Lies, and Videotape” in 1989. Known as an incredibly hands-on director (and editor, cinematographer, screenwriter, and producer — using various pseudonyms on his projects for each position) since his first film, Soderbergh’s career would perhaps not have taken the same shape without this Palme d'Or-winning masterpiece. Starring James Spader, Andie MacDowell, Laura San Giacomo, and Peter Gallagher, “Sex, Lies, and Videotape” is an iconic look into the secret lives of relationships and affairs. It’s raw emotion and challenging sex scenes paved the way for the cinema of the years to come. Read More: Steven Soderbergh Talks ‘Mosaic,’ ‘Kafka’ & Plans To Still Make ‘The Sot-Weed Factor' »
