Steven Soderbergh: Back Before He Even Left?


Steven Soderbergh's behavior isn't doing much to quiet the crazy ass speculation about his career. While he confirmed last week that he was quitting filmmaking to become a painter, he's now saying that the job change isn't meant to be permanent — art world success or no. He told the UK's Observer that his (maybe) imminent departure from the movie industry is "less dramatic that it sounds; it's just a sabbatical." Enough, Soderbergh: How about just stick with the Magic Mike casting updates until you come to a definitive conclusion on this. [THR]
