Steven Soderbergh has a distrust of the Internet – which becomes quite evident from Jude Law's character in Soderbergh's new film, 'Contagion.' And, to be fair, Soderbergh makes some valid points. Last week, he set the record straight with us about Internet speculation surrounding his second unit directing work on 'The Hunger Games.' And, as you'll read below, he also sets the record straight about George Clooney dropping out of 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.' and the news of Soderbergh's own impending retirement -- which he partially blames on Matt Damon -- to, instead, hone his skills as a painter.
Oh, also, 'Contagion' is here to scare the living sh*t out of you. Not in a "jump out at you" kind of way, but more by presenting a realistic and very plausible story -- with an all-star cast that includes Matt Damon and Kate Winslet, no less -- about a worst-case scenario, highly contagious and very deadly virus. Soderbergh shares with us the disturbing facts he learned though his research (including the fact that, apparently, "we're due,"), the latest news on his upcoming films the male stripper-drama 'Magic Mike' and 'Liberace' -- and, at long last Soderbergh breaks down the scene you've all been losing sleep over: Tess posing as Julia Roberts in 'Oceans 12.'
