‘The Big Short’ director talks about his new movie, ‘The Fault in Our Stars’
Posted On August 3, 2021
“The Big Shot” director Steven Soderbergh, who won the best picture Oscar for “The Artist” and has made numerous other award-winning films, will soon have a new film project in his sights.
Soderberg announced Friday that his next project, “The Fault In Our Stars,” will be released in 2018.
“The film is a true testament to a life of sacrifice, courage and integrity that has been the core of my character for so many years,” he said.
“As an actor, I’m always in the dark about the details of my characters’ lives, but the movie has a very real, tangible story that I’ve been looking for the last few years.”
He said the film is about a group of people who are forced to leave their families behind in a remote desert town.
“They all share one thing in common: They all have the power to change the world,” he explained.
“But when the world turns against them, the people who stand behind them are often the most vulnerable in their own communities.
This is the story of one young man’s struggle to find his place in the world.”
“Fault in Our Skies” will be Soderburg’s first film since winning the Oscar for best picture for “Zero Dark Thirty” and a second consecutive Best Picture Oscar for his latest, “12 Years a Slave.”
The director said he has a “long history” with “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” and “12 Hours a Slave,” which he said will be the next movie in his trilogy.
“I am very proud of what I’ve done with ‘The People v.
Simpson,'” he said, adding that he also will be working on a “12 Days a Slave” movie with actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
The director also said he was thrilled to be working with DiCapri.
“We are incredibly lucky to have a man of his caliber, a man I can really relate to,” he shared.
“He’s just a fantastic storyteller.
He’s an actor’s actor, and he’s a wonderful person to work with.
And we’ve got a great crew.”
“The Firm” director Kevin Smith was honored with the Golden Globe Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in “The Fosters,” which also won an Emmy.
“Kevin Smith’s ‘The Firm’ is one of the greatest comedy shows of all time, and I am thrilled that I’m working with him to tell the story,” said Soderblick.
“My hope is that the audience will embrace it as much as I did.
We are going to create a show that is as good as the one we have on the screen.”
“Crazy Rich Asians” and The Black List” director Justin Lin won a Golden Globe for Best Picture, and “The Black List,” which was nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award for best drama series, won an NAACP Image Award for Best Drama Series.
Sederbergh said he wanted to tell “The Real O’Neals” story because “it’s the one where the kids come together and realize they are more than the sum of their parts.”
The “Real O’ Neals” stars Kiefer Sutherland, Alison Brie, Tessa Thompson, and Matthew Rhys.
“It’s going to touch so many people. “
This film is going to be so big,” he added.
“It’s going to touch so many people.
We’ve got the right people.
I have a great team of people working on this.
It’s going a lot of different directions.”
Soderbrick said he will work on the film with a cast including Rhys, Sutherland, Thompson, Brie and Sutherland’s son.
He said he’s excited to work alongside the “Crazies,” but he’s not giving up on his “Theres Always Something Wrong With This Place.”
“I want it to be the best thing it can be,” he told reporters.
“You’ve got to keep going.
You’ve got people who want it, and you’ve got stories.
You got to tell ’em, and if you want them, you’ve gotta tell ‘er.
You can’t just keep saying, ‘It’s not going to happen.'”
He added that he is “so excited” to be a part of the new film, adding, “I can’t wait to see what we can do with this movie.”
