Last summer, David Lowery called up his pals Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, headed to Texas, and working with a small crew, under the radar, directed the acclaimed “A Ghost Story.” Now, Steven Soderbergh has spent part of this year quietly making a new movie that has already wrapped and certainly has us excited.
“The Crown” star Claire Foy and Juno Temple take the lead roles in “Unsane,” a new movie from Soderbergh, that was shot on Apple’s iPhone and is already in the can. Of course, there are no plot details at the moment, however, during a recent Reddit AMA, the director said to “stay tuned” for a movie that would touch upon similar subject matter as his thriller “Side Effects.” Could this be it?
At the moment, there’s no indication when the film will be released, but Soderbergh does plan to handle domestic distribution through his new shingle, Fingerprint. And let’s not forget “Unsane” now marks the second movie the director has sitting and waiting to see the light of the day; there’s also his HBO effort “Mosaic,” though Soderbergh is apparently working on a unique narrative device to accompany the picture before its released.
This is one we’ll be keeping an eye on, but up next for Soderbergh is “Logan Lucky” which opens on August 18th. [The Tracking Board/Variety]
