According to Variety, Soderbergh, who has just finished working on TV shows like The Knick and The Girlfriend Experience, fell in love with the movie’s script and personally chose to work with Tatum after casting him in the hit thriller Side Effects, the stripper comedy Magic Mike and Haywire.

Soderbergh, who won the best director Oscar for “Traffic” in 2000, will most likely return to TV after working on this feature film in Atlanta, Georgia as he prepares to move forward with a third season of The Knick as well as his HBO TV pilot Mosaic starring Sharon Stone.
