A rolling Steven Soderbergh gathers no moss. Less than two full weeks after leaving the director’s chair for ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,’ the Oscar winner his ‘U.N.C.L.E.’ screenwriter, Scott Z. Burns have announced that they’re shopping ‘The Bitter Pill’ to hungry studios. Per The Hollywood Reporter, ‘Pill’ is described as “a thriller set in the world of psychopharmacology.” Cue comparisons to ‘Inception’! Your pill bottle is the scene of the crime, amirite?
If ‘The Bitter Pill’ comes together, it would fill the void left by ‘U.N.C.L.E.’ in Soderbergh’s good-bye schedule. The famed director — who may or may not be taking an extended break soon-ish — will release ‘Haywire’ in January, ‘Magic Mike’ in June, and has the HBO biopic on Liberace (‘Behind the Candelabra’) on his slate as well. Retirement never looked so busy!
