Steven Soderbergh, Scott Frank to Re-Team for Netflix Limited Series ‘Godless’

Steven Soderbergh is reuniting with his “Out of Sight” screenwriter Scott Frank for a Netflix limited series titled “Godless,” Variety has confirmed.

The streaming series marks another project in the television landscape for Soderbergh, who’s currently behind “The Girlfriend Experience” at Starz, “The Knick” at Cinemax, “Red Oaks” at Amazon and HBO’s upcoming, highly-secretive interactive “Mosaic.”

Soderbergh will serve as an exec producer on “Godless,” while Frank will pen, direct and exec produce the project along with Casey Silver.

Netflix has not provided many details on the limited, hourlong series, which is described as a Western set in the 1880s. “Godless” will film in Santa Fe, N.M.

“Out of Sight” starred George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez. Since that 1998 film, Frank has gone on to write screenplays for “Minority Report,” “Marley & Me” and “The Wolverine,” among other movies, while Soderbergh directed “Magic Mike,” the “Ocean’s Eleven” franchise and “Traffic,” among others.

“Godless” is one of the first limited series to come to Netflix’s booming slate, following the announcement of the “Gilmore Girls” revival, which will be made up of four 90-minute installments. As for Soderbergh’s upcoming projects, the streaming series joins the slew of TV shows he’s working on, following his declaration that he’d be leaving film. (The last movie he worked on was “Magic Mike XXL.”) However, Variety recently reported that he’s ending his retirement in that medium with a Channing Tatum movie.
