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 »

8 July 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, so much for his retirement…

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Steven Soderbergh is set to follow-up the currently-in-production Lucky Logan with a movie based upon the Panama Papers scandal, which he is producing with an eye to direct.

The movie will be based upon Jake Bernstein’s upcoming book The Secrecy World, and will explore details the leaking of more than 11 million records from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which revealed details of the financial dealings and attempts to avoid taxation by many of the world’s wealthiest individuals. The book is said to “contain new details as well as revelations about the financial machinations of rulers and royalty, the illegal activities of some of the world’s largest banks, details about the role of U.S. companies and citizens and the inside story of how a global team of investigative journalists cracked the story.”

Steven Soderbergh Signs On For Panama Papers Feature

7 July 2016 5:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Steven Soderbergh is currently in production on his highly anticipated return to feature filmmaker, “Logan Lucky,” and it seems like he’s catching quite the cinematic bug on set. After famously retiring from moviemaking and stepping into television work, the director is quickly lining up new big screen projects, the latest of which is an untitled drama centered around the Panama Papers.

The project will be based on Jake Bernstein’s yet-to-be-published book “The Secrecy of the World.” Bernstein was one of the investigative reporters who helped expose the Panama Papers, millions of documents that detailed how the world’s elite used a Panamanian law firm to escape financial scrutiny.

Soderbergh is set to produce the feature, though reports say he’s already eyeing the director’s chair. The auteur will team up with his longtime screenwriter Scott Z. Burns for the movie. »

Steven Soderbergh's Comeback

7 July 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Steven Soderbergh is retired no more. The director, who had previously announced Side Effects (2013) as his last feature film, is making two movies in the next year or so. It was just announced that he will be directing a feature film about The Panama Papers, the leaked documents which revealed how many of the super-rich employ legal, but dodgy accounting systems to avoid taxation. Even some luminaries in the film world (Emma Watson, Pedro Almodovar and the estate of Stanley Kubrick) were named in that scandal. The film will be based on Secrecy World, a to-be-published book by the Pulitzer prize-winning reporter Jake Bernstein. The adaptation will be written by frequent Soderbergh collaborator Scott Z Burns (Contagion, Side Effects, The Informant!).

Sounds like another Contagion, no? Taking a global incident and examining it from different points of view. Before that he will make Ocean’s Fourteen -- well not exactly, »

Steven Soderbergh could come out of directing retirement to helm a new film based on the recent Panama Papers leak. Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, Side Effects) will write the screenplay.

Those implicated in the high-profile leak included  close associates of Russian president Vladimir Putin, the father of British Prime Minister David Cameron, relatives of China’s president Xi Jinping and soccer player Lionel Messi.

No news on when this will start to roll, but we’ll keep you informed.

Steven Soderbergh To Reunite With Scott Z. Burns For Panama Papers Movie

6 July 2016 7:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite taking a bit of a break/retirement from the world of film, it appears as if Steven Soderbergh is ready to dive right back in. He’s already lined up a directing gig in the form of Logan Lucky, which will star Channing Tatum and Adam Driver, and now he apparently has his eye on a project about the Panama Papers.

Right now Soderbergh is only attached to produce, but he may very well get behind the camera as well here. On scripting duties is Scott Z. Burns, a frequent collaborator of the director who has worked with him on films like Contagion and Side Effects, among others. Together, the two make a very strong team and their involvement on this movie alone makes it one to keep an eye on.

‘The Saint’ Movie Reboot in the Works at Paramount

17 June 2016 2:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount is developing a movie reboot of “The Saint,” two decades after Val Kilmer’s thriller and 50 years after Roger Moore’s TV series.

The studio has secured a deal for book series rights and is closing producing deals with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Brad Krevoy and Robert Evans with the goal of starting an action franchise.

The Saint” is based on Leslie Charteris’ book series, which follow the debonair Simon Templar character first introduced in the 1928 novel “Meet the Tiger,” followed by “Enter the Saint” in 1930. Templar stole from corrupt politicians and warmongers, leaving a calling card of a stick figure with a halo.

George Sanders starred in half a dozen films as “The Saint” in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Prior to his days portraying James Bond, Moore starred in a popular long-running British TV series during the 1960s.

The 1997 movie starred Kilmer and Elisabeth Shue, and was »

Steven Soderbergh’s Heist Thriller Logan Lucky Casts Jack Quaid

16 June 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After finding some wiggle room in his commitment to HBO’s acclaimed music drama VinylJack Quaid has closed a deal to join Steven Soderbergh’s star-studded Nascar drama Logan Lucky.

Deadline has the scoop, revealing that the up-and-comer now joins an ensemble that features Channing Tatum, Katherine Heigl, Daniel Craig, Hillary Swank, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) and Alien: Covenant’s Katherine Waterston. That’s a casting call that once made room for Michael Shannon, before a scheduling clash forced the Midnight Special star to bow out of the project in favor of Guillermo del Toro’s as-yet-untitled Cold War romance.

Rooted in North Carolina, Logan Lucky is pitched as a family drama revolving around two daring brothers who stage a heist during the midst of a Nascar race. It’s a feature that has been simmering on the back-burner for some time, particularly when you factor in the ‘will he, won’t he?’ debacle that ensued before Soderbergh eventually decided to return behind the lens for the first time since Side Effects three years ago. Mark Johnson, Gregory Jacobs and Reid Carolin are on board to produce.

With an enviable ensemble in tow, Logan Lucky is expected to enter production in the coming months ahead of a theatrical release at some point next year. Currently, Soderberg is still in search of a distributor. »

Paramount Taps Corin Hardy for Lorenzo di Bonaventura’s ‘Hell Bent’

15 June 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount has attached “The Hallow” director Corin Hardy to direct action movie “Hell Bent” with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian producing.

The script, written by Mike Finch, follows a group of mercenaries who are murdered in a Brazilian jail and led into hell by a priest in order to kill Satan.

Hardy was attached to direct Relativity’s reboot of “The Crow” in late 2014 before the company went through bankruptcy. The company emerged from bankruptcy protection in March but it’s not clear whether it plans to go ahead with “The Crow.”

The Hallow,” in which a conservationist unleashes demonic forces in the rural Irish forest, premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was acquired by IFC for the U.S.

Besides “The Hallow,” the Irish director’s credits include the animated short “Butterfly” and music videos for Ed Sheeran, Biffy Clyro, Keane, Paolo Nutini and the Prodigy.

Paramount-based di Bonaventura Pictures has produced the “Transformers,” “G.I. Joe” and “Red” franchises along with “Salt,” “Side Effects,” “Shooter,” “Jack Ryan” and “The Devil Inside.”

Hardy is repped by Wme, Hugo Young at Independent Talent Group, Elevate Entertainment’s Jenny Wood and attorney Fred Toczek. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

'Alien: Covenant' Actress Katherine Waterston Joins Growing Cast in Steven Soderbergh's 'Logan Lucky'

9 June 2016 6:27 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Katherine Waterston may not be the most recognizable name just yet, but she certainly seems to be on the rise in Hollywood. A couple years ago, she was in P.T. Anderson's Inherent Vice, and just last year, she acted alongside Michael Fassbender in the Steve Jobs movie, and she'll be in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them later this year. She's currently dodging Xenomorphs in the movie Alien: Covenant, and now it looks like she's joined the growing cast of Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky, The Playlist reports.

Waterston will be joining an amazing ensemble cast that includes Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, Riley Keough, Adam Driver, Katherine Heigl, Seth MacFarlane. The film revolves around two brothers looking to pull off a heist during a Nascar race. Given that this film has an ensemble cast and involves a heist, it's quite fitting that it comes from the same director as Ocean's Eleven. »
