Soderbergh Retiring from Filmmaking?
Posted 07.16.09 by reelz
Steven Soderbergh has weaved in and out of Hollywood with remarkable success. But in a recent interview with The Guardian, Soderbergh indicated that he might be reaching the end of his career.
This comes shortly after Columbia Pictures axed his proposed baseball flick Moneyball ... and then announced the movie was still a go with Brad Pitt to star, but that Soderbergh had been fired as director.
Although Soderbergh didn't mention it explicitly, it's hard to imagine that the incident doesn't have something to do with his current sentiment.
I'm looking at the landscape and I'm thinking, "Hmmm, I don't know. A few more years maybe." And then the stuff that I'm interested in is only going to be of interest to me.... In terms of my career, I can see the end of it. I've had that sensation for a few years now. And so I've got a list of stuff that I want to do — that I hope I can do — and once that's all finished I may just disappear.
