Between toying with the idea of retiring to become a painter and reaffirming himself as a polymath filmmaker, prolific Steven Soderbergh knows how to keep his schedule full. Annapurna Pictures and Open Road Films will partner to produce "Side Effects," one of several upcoming Soderbergh projects. The film is set to start shooting in April. (This shooting slot was originally going to be  "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," which fell apart.)

"Side Effects" (formerly known as "Bitter Pill") will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Gregory Jacobs from a script by Scott Z. Burns, who penned Soderbergh's "Contagion" and "The Informant!"  Soderbergh's star-du-jour, Channing Tatum ("Haywire," "Magic Mike") will likely star with Blake Lively and Jude Law.

Year-old production company Annapurna was founded in 2010, but has some impressive projects in the works, including Kathryn Bigelow's untitled project about the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden and Paul Thomas Anderon's "The Master."  Backed by the AMC and Regal theater chains, new indie distributor Open Road is only a year old--with upcoming releases such as "The Grey" and "The Host," from "Twilight" scribe Stephanie Meyer.  

Open Road will release the film in the first half of 2013.
