Soderbergh takes time out
Has Hollywood's Mr. Prolific finally hit the wall?
(Empire, December 2002)

After a breathtaking seven movies in four years, Steven Soderbergh will be taking a year's sabbatical after the early 2003 release of Solaris. "I need time to think about what I'm going to do next," he told Empire. "They all feel like they're getting harder," says Soderbergh. "Ocean's 11, at the time, I thought was really difficult, and Full Frontal proved difficult in it's own way. But Solaris turned out to be difficult in all the ways a movie can be difficult."

During his time off, the director wants to take stock of his direction. "I want to take more risks," he says, perhaps alluding to the digital experiment Full Frontal which, as yet, has no UK release date. To make the kind of films he wants to make, Soderbergh is in talks with David Fincher, who cameos in Full Frontal, to set up a mini-studio. But he stresses that this can't happen overnight. "It's a difficult time in the US," he says, "and we want to do it right. We've spent an enormous amount of time figuring out why companies like this have failed in the US, and how to make one succeed."

Soderbergh accepts, though, that finding backers might be a problem. "There's a lot of people who don't want it to work," he says. "Because if it does, it will completely turn everything upside down."
