The Hollywood industry has been slammed with Steven Soderbergh’s sizzling spy thriller wrap Black Bag, which stars Cate Blanchett and Michael Fassbender. David Keopp wrote the screenplay for the feature film, which will be directed by Soderbergh. The filmmaker and writer are collaborating on their latest project, a thriller called Presence that will make its Sundance Film Festival debut on Friday. Despite this endeavour, like many of Soderbergh’s, continues to be kept under wraps, it is understood to be set in the United Kingdom.
This week, the initiative made its way onto the workstations of studios and streamers in search of funding and distribution. The goal is to film in London in May, but no agreements have been made as of yet. Composing the film are Casey Silver and Greg Jacobs. Soderbergh appears to be confining himself to those he has already collaborated with. Blanchett produced Ocean’s 8, which was a part of Ocean’s 11 trilogy, and acted in his 2006 noir The Good German. Furthermore, Fassbender starred in Soderbergh’s high-profile group action film Haywire, which was centred around MMA fighter Gina Carano. Throughout the pandemic, Koepp and Soderbergh previously produced the highly acclaimed thriller Kimi, starring Zoe Kravitz.
Sales are being handled by CAA. Koepp and Blanchett are represented by the agency; Myman Greenspan represents the Jurassic Park writer, and RGM Artists represents the Oscar-winning actress. Lichter Grossman and Sugar23 are Soderbergh’s representatives. Range Media and Sloane Offer represent Fassbender, who was most recently seen in David Fincher’s The Killer.
