Candice Bergen Confirms Steven Soderbergh Has Already Shot New Movie with Her, Meryl Streep, Dianne Wiest, Lucas Hedges, Gemma Chan


Remember when Steven Soderbergh announced his retirement from films? Since then he hasn’t stopped making new movies. His latest, “The Laundromat,” starring Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Jeffrey Wright, Matthias Schoenaerts, James Cromwell and Sharon Stone. It’s coming to Netflix on September 27th after it makes the festival circuit this fall.

Soderbergh must like working with Streep. He’s already made a second movie with her called “Let Them All Talk,” and it’s based on the Elvis Costello song. It’s kind of like a “Love Boat” as three widows take a cruise– Streep, Dianne Wiest, and Candice Bergen. Lucas Hedges and Gemma Chan are the young people along for the ride.

How do we know? Thanks to the intrepid photographer/journalist Candice Bergen, who still has “Murphy Brown” blood in her veins. She’s posted the news to Instagram, along with a photo of Soderbergh in his tricked out wheelchair used to film tracking shots. Very clever. It seems from Candice’s Instagram that they shot part of the film– or maybe all of it– on the Queen Mary 2 from New York to Southampton, England.
