U.N.C.L.E. movie watch: Soderberg thinking of retiring, LA Times says

The Los Angeles Times, in its 24 Frames blog, interviews Matt Damon who says Steven Soderberg may retire from making movies soon.

For fans of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., both Soderbergh and George Clooney have been linked in reports by the entertainment media to the on-again, off-again attempts to do a movie version of the 1964-68 show.

The LA Times story on Damon has this intriguing paragraph:

Soderbergh told Esquire two years ago that he’d like to retire by the age of 51, which marks his 25th year as a filmmaker. Damon offers more specifics: “After this movie we’re doing ‘Liberace’ next summer with Michael Douglas, and then he might do one more movie after that with George [Clooney], and then after that he’s retiring.”

Is Damon’s quote a backdoor confirmation that Soderberg may do U.N.C.L.E. with Clooney? Given the twisted history of this would-be movie, it’s hard to tell.
