Soderbergh: Back to Big Screen with Feature Starring Channing Tatum

Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh is heading back to the big screen, ending his retirement of three years ago.

Soderbergh is attached to direct the feature film Lucky Logan, starring Channing Tatum.

Gregory Jacobs will produce the movie, which is currently a mystery, but sources say Soderbergh recently read the script and liked it.

Most of the major studios, including Warner, Sony and Fox are interested in acquiring the package.

Since his last feature film in 2013, Side Effects, Soderbergh has focused on TV, directing the Emmy-winning HBO picture Behind the Candelabra, starring Michael Douglas as Liberace.

Soderbergh and Tatum have a deep past, having worked together on Haywire, Magic Mike, and Side Effects.

In 2012, Soderbergh said prior to shooting Side Effects that the prescription thriller, which co-starred Rooney Mara, would be his final feature.

Soderbergh, who won the best director Oscar for Traffic in 2000, prepares to move forward with a third season of The Knick, as well as his HBO pilot Mosaic, starring Sharon Stone.

Tatum can be seen next in the Coen brothers’ picture, Hail Caesar!, and is set to start production on X-Men spinoff Gambit this spring.
