Acclaimed film director and occasional film abandoner Steven Soderbergh has taken on a new project. THR reports that Soderbergh, who less than two weeks ago exited Warner Bros. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. update after reputed budget and casting disagreements, is teaming up with screenwriter pal Scott Z. Burns for The Bitter Pill, a thriller which … wait for it … takes place in the world of psychopharmacology. The bald, brainy, bespectacled duo previously collaborated on the germtastic thriller Contagion and the whistleblower comedy The Informant!. The project is being pitched to studios as we speak. Might want to skip Warner Bros. this time around, fellas.
