I heard something about a Soderbergh/Clooney film-production-company where they are going to make alternative movies...Is this true?....Do anyone know if they are currently shooting any movies?

I've got a ton of respect for Clooney after seeing "Confessions". I know a lot of people wrote him off as a director because of the visual cliches he used, but all directors do that. I was mucho impressed.

All I can say is - I hope this rumor is true!

I really like Clooney both as actor and as director. I'm pretty sure about the Clooney- Soderbergh thing....it would be cool if someone confirmed it.
My concern is.....a alternative Soderbergh-film would that be somthing like Traffic or like Full Frontal. I hope it's something like Traffic :-D

Their company is called Section 8 films. Anything they produced this past year would have been under that label (Welcome To Collinwood, Far From Heaven), and they've been optioning tons of great material lately. Its exciting times for movies, folks, as long as these guys keep at it.

Thanx for sharing your knowledge. Do you know if Clooney is planning on directing any films for Section 8 films ?

"Confessions" was under Section Eight, but "I won't be directing again for a while," Clooney said.

Other films Section Eight has produced:
Far from Heaven
Full Frontal
In God's Hands
Insomnia
Ocean's Eleven
Ocean's Twelve
Solaris

I remember him saying a couple months back how he never wanted to direct ever again... and then a few days ago I saw him on E! and he is talking about eventually quitting acting and becoming a full time director because nobody wants to see an old Clooney.

They have the rights to Philip K Dick's A Scanner Darkly and I believe they are planning on producing it with Richard Linklater Directing. This isn't confirmed yet, but it's gonna be some bomb ass shit.

Yeah, I remember reading about that on AICN. If anyone could pull of a movie version of that book, it would be incredible. They also mentioned that Charlie Kaufman had written the screenplay.

I haven't seen Confessions... yet but that's what you have to love about Clooney, his sly sense of humor, and no, not his sorely mistimed political rants....and it may have something to do with his acting and the quality of the movies he's been in.

I really liked 'Confessions' too, but I'm really afraid that Clooney's style will eventually become exactly like Sodderbergh's. I rather he keep his own style. But that's just me and im probly being paranoid.

Clooney/Soderbergh Producing Cheadle Debut

Section Eight's George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh have come aboard to produce "Tishomingo Blues", Don Cheadle's directing debut.

Originally set up at Film Four, which left the film financing business in 2002, the Elmore Leonard adaptation would mark a Leonard reunion for the trio: Clooney and Cheadle appeared in 1998's "Out of Sight", based on the Leonard book of the same name and helmed by Soderbergh.

Section Eight and Cheadle have an established working relationship, with Cheadle appearing in Soderbergh's "Ocean's Eleven" at Warner Bros. with Clooney toplining.

With a script by John Richards ("Nurse Betty"), the film follows a high diver at the Tishomingo Hotel & Casino in Mississippi who witnesses a Mafia murder and becomes entangled with a Detroit con artist.
