Default High Flying Bird (dir. Steven Soderbergh)

Quote:
No rest for the weary when it comes to Steven Soderbergh’s 2018. In between all of his media consumption, the director’s app-turned-TV show Mosiac is now airing on HBO and in just a few weeks he’ll premiere his iPhone-shot psychological horror film Unsane at Berlinale. Then he’s back to New York City to shoot a new film, and more details on the project have now been revealed.

Set to begin production at the end of the month, the NBA drama High Flying Bird will be led by his break-out star of The Knick, André Holland. It will also mark another reunion for Holland as the script is written by Tarell Alvin McCraney, the Oscar-winning co-writer of Moonlight. While the project was initially revealed last fall, we now know more about the drama thanks to the first logline: “During an NBA lockout, a sports agent, Dean (Holland), presents his rookie client, Erick Scott, with an intriguing and controversial business opportunity.”

With the shoot lasting only a little over two weeks and Soderbergh’s recent comments about how iPhones are the future of filmmaking, one would imagine he’ll utilize the smartphone for this yet again. As we await word on additional casting, Soderbergh also just lined up another project with the action thriller Planet Kill. Producing with an eye to direct, the undisclosed story comes from Scott Z. Burns (Contagion) and James Greer (Unsane), Deadline reports. Soderbergh truly never left, but as Logan Lucky proved, it’s a welcome sight to have him taking on a plethora of feature films once again.

Sounds awesome. Probably will be out this year.

Hold up. Wasn't he going to retire after Logan Lucky?

...and I'm sure this will tie into the Cloverfield universe in some way.

You are horribly misinformed.

He was supposed to retire after Behind the Candelabra. Logan Lucky was his first film post-"retirement."

Never, EVER believe any director or actor who claims they're "retiring" after their most recent film...Daniel Day Lewis started squawking about retirement almost 20 years ago, and I doubt that Phantom Thread will be the last time we see him in a movie. Same thing with Tarantino...he may go away for a while after he finishes his tenth movie, but he'll be back at some point when the money starts running low.

Soderbergh can make five movies a year for all I care - I like his work even when it's not particularly great. At least he's more inclined to experimentation and versatility than most of his successful American peers. I just hope he will never bring up this retirement nonsense again. It's so annoying. It's ok to change one's mind, but why announce it publicly?

He was genuinely planning on retiring from filmmaking, or at least taking an extended break... but his reasoning for returning makes sense:

Quote:
“First, I was not going to be directing at all and just really take a sabbatical. Right as we were going to Cannes with Behind the Candelabra, which was in my mind going to be the official start of my enforced vacation, I got the script for The Knick. So I went from not doing anything and exploring my future as a painter to starting to shoot a ten-hour television show in four months. The Knick scared me. We had to shoot 600 pages in 73 days. I’ve worked on some films with pretty aggressive schedules. This was on another order of magnitude, and I was terrified. This was something that was keeping me up at nights, wondering if this was really too big a reach. About a week in, I realized that there was a rhythm that was actually really exhilarating to be had and we were going to make it. I was sitting there on set, realizing that this is the job that I should be doing. 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. For a while, I was just very, very happy to be working in that form. I loved working with a ten-hour canvass. It was really fun, and 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.”

Unfortunately, I think this will probably be it for Day-Lewis. It's very sad.

He quit the stage in the late 80s and has never returned. It's a loss for everyone if he does indeed leave film as well.

Soderbergh wrapped it today at 1:09 pm, and had the first cut ready by 3:41 pm. He's never gonna let that iPhone go.

If only David Lynch would have a similar train of thought

I men what are we losing really? A performance that manages to be overacted yet dull every five years?

I’m guessing a Fall release? Then onto Planet Kill?

Definitely this year... maybe even late summer. Depends if Soderbergh wants to use the same release model as Logan Lucky/Unsane and when he think it'll do best. Wonder if it'll have awards prospects... Holland is an amazing actor and the Moonlight screenwriter could be a good sign...

Who knows what's next! High Flying Bird came out of nowhere and he's already done filming it!
