While Steven Soderbergh has never been busier -- "Contagion" hit theaters last month, "Magic Mike" is now shooting and "Haywire" will hit theaters in early 2012 -- he's gained even more attention since reports of his impending hiatus/retirement. But don't worry, he's not going anywhere anytime soon, as the man still has lots to do. Of course, there is the Warner Bros. tentpole "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." in development, but while that one is still looking for a leading man after George Clooney had to bow out, Soderbergh's long-gestating Liberace pic "Behind The Candelabra" is moving forward.

Relativity Media Will Distribute in U.S.Well, that's one film we can take out of awards contention for 2011. One of Steven Soderbergh's upcoming films "Haywire" won't be released till January 20, 2012. As we've been saying all along, Relativity Media has retained the domestic rights, with Lionsgate holding on to the foreign rights. Lionsgate was all set to release in the U.S. as well, until restructuring gave partner Relativity its own domestic arm for distribution. The initial date was April, 2011, which Soderbergh confirmed himself, but it was never officially announced; the restructuring deal points took much longer than anyone expected. Then August, 2011 became the next date everyone was zeroing on, but they too lost that window of opportunity when the deal pushed back the chance to release trailers and posters.

Role Will Require Prosthetic Work & Musical TrainingA double dose of good news in this story. Firstly, Michael Douglas, who has been valiantly battling throat cancer appears to be very much on the mend and in his first post-illness interview with The Hollywood Reporter (definitely worth a read) the actor reveals that Steven Soderbergh's "Liberace" is very much going to happen.
