Steven Soderbergh Superhero Movie

When director Steven Soderbergh returned to the big screen back in August, his “hillbilly heist” film Logan Lucky was touted as a comeback, even though he had only been in “retirement” for four years and was actually very busy during that time making Behind the Candelabra and The Knick for HBO and Cinemax. Logan Lucky may have underperformed at the domestic box office, but the movie was reportedly financed through foreign pre-sales and it is still rolling out to international territories.

On Halloween night, the film made its Japanese premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival as part of a special program called The World of Steven Soderbergh. This program also screened other Soderbergh films like Sex, Lies, and Videotape and Ocean’s Eleven. The director’s appearance in stage greetings and Q&A talks during this event yielded some interesting quotes about his body of work, including his upcoming HBO mini-series, Mosaic, which first debuts November 8 as an interactive app.

And will there be a Steven Soderbergh superhero movie? Well, he says he already made one.

Godless trailer

When filmmaker Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s Eleven, Logan Lucky) gets involved in a project, I pay attention. When that project happens to be a western, a genre I’ve always loved…well, I’m hooked already.

Such is the case with Godless, a Netflix limited series Soderbergh is producing for writer/director Scott Frank (The Lookout). The streaming service has just unveiled a full-length trailer for the new show, and since it follows a group of women running a New Mexico town and taking a stand against a group of male outlaws, it seems like exactly the kind of story we need right now. Take a look for yourselves and see what I mean below.

steven soderbergh rejection

If you’re struggling with job rejection after job rejection in your 20s, don’t worry. Rome wasn’t built in a day, nor was Steven Soderbergh an indie darling director immediately after he joined the film industry. It took work, and rejection by one of the top movie studios of the day.

In April 1984, Soderbergh was an aspiring 21-year-old filmmaker scraping by as a game show scorer and a freelance film editor. But in an effort to break into Hollywood, he decided to send a demo reel of short films shot on Super 8mm to Lucasfilm. They rejected him. And Soderbergh still has the letter.

godless trailer

Neo-Westerns and Western remakes abound, but you’d be hard pressed to find a good old-fashioned original Western right now. Steven Soderbergh, who after a brief flirtation with his old feature film haunts with Logan Lucky, has returned to the television world to offer you just that.

Soderbergh is producing Godless, a new limited series on Netflix created by Scott Frank (co-writer of this year’s genre-bending superhero hit Logan). The streaming service has just dropped a teaser trailer for the series, and it’s just as dusty and grim as you’d expect from a straight Western, with Jeff Daniels, Michelle Dockery, and Jack O’Connell leading the star-studded cast.

godless first look

An old school western miniseries is coming to Netflix later this year from Steven Soderbergh and director Scott Frank (The Lookout). The last time the two of them worked together was on their adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s Out of Sight, so of course their next collaboration has our expectations sky high. Frank, who last directed A Walk Among the Tombstones, wrote and directed all of the miniseries, which stars Jack O’Connell (Unbroken), Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom), Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), and Scoot McNairy (Halt & Catch Fire). Sounds pretty good, right?

Below, check out the Godless first look.
