Matt Damon Says Steven Soderbergh Is Dead Serious About Retiring By 51OK, so this isn't exactly new and it's something Steven Soderbergh has mentioned a couple times over the last two years so, but the acclaimed director has long been considering retiring once his recent slate of pictures is complete. Back in the fall of 2009, he said he wasn't keen on still directing past of the age of 50 and that he hoped to retire within four years. And it looks like he's still sticking to that plan.

While In Early Stages, Picture Is Being Envisioned As "Back To Roots" '60s-Set Film2011 is shaping up to be a banner year for director Steven Soderbergh and therefore likely a big one for Warner Bros. too. The prolific filmmaker is planning on releasing his latest spy-based action thriller "Haywire" next spring, he's currently shooting the virus thriller "Contagion" for an already-planned October 21, 2011 release date (Matt Damon, Kate Winslet and Gwyneth Paltrow are just a few of the A-list names, but no, it won't be in 3D), and he's just announced his latest project, the big screen version of “The Man From U.N.C.L.E" for the aforementioned WB.

The big screen version of "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." is one of those projects that has been knocking around for years that has never made it in front of cameras. It has attracted a variety of talent over time including Quentin Tarantino (really), Matthew Vaughan with Daniel Craig attached, David Dobkin and as recently as this summer, Doug Liman (who ended up turning it down). We can't say we were ever really interested in the project. Until now.
