According to Variety, Steven Soderbergh’s next project will be romantic thriller The Good German, a project Section Eight will produce for Warner Bros. Pictures. The movie may be filmed in black and white.
Production on the new film should begin in September, according to the trade.
The film will be based on the novel by Joseph Kanon, about an American reporter named Jake Geismar, who is stationed in Europe during World War II. Under the guise of covering the final Allied campaign, the reporter sets out to find a former lover. Instead, he gets entangled in a murder mystery.
I have previously read elsewhere that George Clooney may star in the film, but I am not able to confirm that part of the story.
