Steven Soderbergh has taken another step back from the retirement he announced in 2010 (and hinted at in previous years). In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, he explained, I'm sort of taking tie off and just trying to determine whether I can come at movies from a different direction. That's something I think I can't really explore while undertaking another movie. He described his next professional phase as an extended sabbatical during which he will be making some television. Limiting his retirement even further, he indicated, are his plans to direct all of the episodes of a first season.
