Steven Soderbergh explains why he came out of retirement for Logan Lucky

25 April 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite announcing his retirement from feature directing following 2013’s Side Effects and Behind the Candelabra, filmmaker Steven Soderbergh is back behind the camera this year for the heist caper Logan Lucky, and during an interview with Entertainment Weekly he has explained what drew him to this latest film.

“I was sitting there on [The Knick] set, realizing that this is the job that I should be doing,” said Soderbergh. “This is my job. I should be directing stuff. Nobody’s waiting around for my paintings. So I kind of flipped a switch. I got reconnected with what I like about the job… I wasn’t really thinking about movies… until this script came in over the transom. If it hadn’t, I think everything would be TV oriented.”

“On the most obvious level, it’s the complete inversion of an Ocean’s movie,” he continued. “It’s an anti-glam version of an Ocean’s movie. »

Steven Soderbergh on why he came out of retirement to direct Logan Lucky

24 April 2017 5:49 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Although it didn't last all that long in the grand scheme of things, Steven Soderbergh did in fact retire from directing feature-films after the release of Behind The Candelabra in 2013. Soderbergh certainly didn't stay dormant during this period and, among other things, directed all twenty episodes of Cinemax's The Knick. However, the call of tackling a big-screen project...

Steven Soderbergh talks up his return to directing with Lucky Logan

24 April 2017 12:39 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Steven Soderbergh has been off our screens as a director since 2013 when he directed the HBO feature Behind The Candelabra. He has, in the years since however, acted as producer, director of photography and editor on Magic Mike Xxl and directed every episode of the Clive Owen TV drama The Knick. Following the initial ‘directing retirement’, Soderbergh returns wielding a megaphone for the forthcoming heist film Lucky Logan later this year.

The film stars Daniel CraigChanning Tatum, Adam Driver, and Riley Keough and revolves around the world of three siblings who plan a heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway just before the biggest race of the year. The filmmaker sat down to talk to Entertainment Weekly about his next film, which has a lot of similarities to arguably his most famous work, the Ocean’s Eleven trilogy.

“On the most obvious level, it’s the complete inversion of an Ocean’s movie. »

New Image from ‘Logan Lucky’ Arrives as Steven Soderbergh Talks New Distribution Plans

21 April 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Steven Soderbergh is back — although he never really went away. The filmmaker hasn’t helmed a movie since 2013’s Behind the Candelabra, but that didn’t stop him from directing 20 episodes of The Knick on Cinemax and serving as executive producer on Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience and Amazon’s Red Oaks.

Now Soderbergh is returning to the big screen with Logan Lucky, a heist film starring Adam Driver, Channing Tatum, Seth MacFarlane, Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston and Sebastian Stan, revolving around the Coca-Cola 600, an annual 600-mile Nascar race held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina during Memorial Day weekend.

Soderbergh sat down with Entertainment Weekly and dropped several details about the film (along with a new photo), including what drew him back to filmmaking and the unique way Logan Lucky will be distributed, via Bleecker Street and Soderbergh’s own Fingerprint Releasing. “I »

‘Logan Lucky’: Steven Soderbergh Says His First Film in Four Years Is ‘An Anti-Glam Version of an Ocean’s Movie’

21 April 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As retirements go, Steven Soderbergh’s lasted just a little longer than Terry Funk’s. That’s in part because the prolific writer/director never stopped working after “Behind the Candelabra,” even if his masterful work on “The Knick” aired on the small screen rather than the silver one. He’s returning to feature filmmaking with this summer’s “Logan Lucky,” which he says he decided to direct because he “couldn’t bear the thought of somebody else getting to do it.”

That’s from a new Entertainment Weekly interview about the film, a caper starring Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough and Daniel Craig. Soderbergh says that, despite any superficial similarities to a certain heist trilogy he directed, “Logan Lucky” is actually “the complete inversion of an ‘Ocean’s’ movie. »

Costume Design ~ April Foolish Oscar Predix

14 April 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

on the set of The Current WARCutting right to the chase tonight. Here's what I'm predicting for Oscar's Costume Design category in this first round of punditry

The Current War (Michael Wilkinson)

The Greatest Showman (Ellen Mirojnick)

Murder on the Orient Express (Alexandra Byrne)

• Victoria & Abdul (Consolata Boyle)

Wonderstruck (Sandy Powell)

[Here's the chart]

Sandy Powell is always a good bet of course with 12 past nominations and 3 wins and she'll obviously be having a great time with the dual time frames and actressing of Julianne Moore. The other designers are less regular with the Academy but they've all been nominated with the exception of Ellen Mirojnick. But Mirojnick is no slouch having designed iconic pieces seen in films like Basic Instinct, Showgirls, and recently she won the Emmy for Soderbergh's Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra. She's got one of the year's (presumably) showiest gigs : Hugh Jackman's Pt Barnum musical The Greatest Showman. »

Dan Aykroyd Remembers His Relationship with ‘Beloved Showboat’ Carrie Fisher at Memorial Service

26 March 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Dan Aykroyd was one of many celebrities to pay tribute to his former fiancée Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds at the duo’s public memorial service in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The Ghostbusters actor, 64, revealed that he once saved Fisher’s life when she was choking on a piece of food.

“Firstly, I feel responsible in part myself for why Carrie is not with us today because I once saved her life applying the Heimlich to dislodge a Brussels sprout,” he shared at the service put together by Todd Fisher, Fisher’s brother and Reynolds’ son. “If I »

SXSW Film Review: ‘The Disaster Artist’

13 March 2017 8:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like such kindred spirits in quantity over quality as Tyler Perry and Joe Swanberg, James Franco has made a crapload of movies. Sooner or later, he was bound to deliver a good one. But who would have thought his adaptation of Greg Sestero’s “The Disaster Artist,” an outrageous blow-by-blow account of the actor-turned-author’s friendship with the aggressively untalented and infinitely enigmatic creator of one of the worst movies of this century — “The Room” writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau — would turn out to be the best and most professional entry on his own résumé?

That’s a claim not without caveats, mind you. The version that world premiered at the South by Southwest film festival was presented as a “work in progress” — where it killed to a room full of “The Room” obsessives, many of whom stuck around for a midnight screening of Wiseau’s disasterpiece. And even though IMDb lists »

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey

21 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape. But while the world is wide enough for both of them, our hearts are not. And so, we forced our panel of critics to choose: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon?

There can be only one.

This is a toughie. In terms of looks, both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s faces remind me of between forty and fifty of my least-favorite classmates during »

Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom star in trailer for Unlocked

10 February 2017 7:58 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom enter the world of high octane violence movies with the brand new trailer for Unlocked, an action thriller centred on Rapace, terrorists and Bloom, who, from what we can gather, just tags along for the ride.

Related: Noomi Rapace Interview on The Drop

The trailer for Unlocked, has no thrills, airs or graces and quite frankly looks like a run of the mill action film with a badass female having to save the day all the whilst fighting off highly trained men in an effort to get the terrorist back to London? We’ve all seen Rapace in full blown action, Orlando Bloom – in a role that isn’t at all clear – just seems to have wanted to associate his name with an action film, maybe to get it back on track? Who knows but the proof will be in the pudding as they say. »

Cannes Tackles Television: Why a Global TV Festival Could Be a Gamechanger

11 January 2017 10:13 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The city of Cannes wants to build its own TV event, one that’s on par with its famed film festival — but it faces competition from an increasingly crowded marketplace, as well as real questions about how a television festival might best serve creators and attendees.

The Cannes Film Festival prides itself on being the most prestigious cinema showcase in the world, and for years, has resisted the notion that television exists in the same sphere. When TV does surface in the Cannes lineup — as as when Steven Soderbergh’s 2013 HBO telefilm “Behind the Candelabra” landed a coveted Official Competition slot — it’s presented in the same terms as everything else there: As a movie. However, as the line between TV and film industries become increasingly murky, the festival remained loathe to include a television component. That made it easier for the city to start its own event, one that »
