After he completes his latest two projects, he will move on to another creative pursuit, such as photography or painting. He feels that his career has run its course. "When you reach the point where you're, like, 'if I have to get into a van to do another scout I'm just going to shoot myself,' it's time to let somebody else who's still excited about getting in the van, get in the van," Soderbergh explained.
"For the last three years, I've been turning down everything that comes my way," Soderbergh said. He stated that his last two projects would a Liberace biopic starring Matt Damon and Michael Douglas and the remake of Man from U.N.C.L.E. starring George Clooney.
In 2013, Soderbergh brought his Librace film Behind the Candelabra to the small screen. The project earned much critical praise and several Emmy Awards, including a win for Soderbergh as its director and for Michael Douglas for his starring turn as Liberace.
