Steven Soderbergh May Be Un-retiring To Direct Channing Tatum Heist Flick

Today we have two versions of one story out there in movie land.

Variety and Deadline are both reporting that Steven Soderbergh may be coming out of retirement to direct Channing Tatum in a heist movie and that much we can all agree on.

Variety, however has Soderbergh directing Hillbilly Heist with Matt Damon set to co-star; Deadline has Soderbergh directing Logan’s Luck with Michael Shannon set to co-star.

Not a bad problem to have, either way you look at it. We have a Soderbergh directed heist film starring Channing Tatum and either Michael Shannon or Matt Damon. Maybe they should fight it out. My money is on Shannon; that dude could beat a man senseless using only a stare. I’ve seen him do it. (No, I haven’t)

Soderbergh hadn’t fully retired anyways, as he handled just about everything on Showtime’s The Knick. Still yet, this will be his first rodeo with a theatrical film release since 2013′s Side Effects. 

Whichever film we end up getting, the script is set to be shown to studios this week and to shoot in the fall. As soon as we get an official word, you’ll get an update right here at GeekNation!
