Following a year of casting difficulties and reported budget disputes, director Steven Soderbergh finally left Warner Bros.' adaptation of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. about two weeks ago. Not one to stay idle for long, Heat Vision reporters the filmmaker is already shopping a new project called Bitter Pill.
The film was written by Scott Z. Burns, who not only penned the version of U.N.C.L.E. Soderbergh intended to direct but also The Bourne Ultimatum and Contagion. The only thing we know about the movie is that it's a psychopharmacology-based thriller. That might sound a little on the dull side, but medicine is a huge business with plenty of well-guarded secrets.
Soderbergh and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura are talking to studios, trying to find the perfect place for Bitter Pill.
