Soderbergh Tests the RED Komodo Dragon on his New Film
Steven Soderbergh is taking the RED Komodo Dragon for a spin.
For a guy who once said he was retiring, Steven Soderbergh sure has no idea how to relax.
Soderbergh is working on a secret project called Let Them All Talk. We don't know much about the movie but we do know he's using the RED Komodo Dragon to capture it all. For those of you unfamiliar, the RED Komodo Dragon is not available to the public yet, and we don't know a lot about it, but it looks to be a new camera design with maybe the RED Hydrogen smartphone at its center.
Soderbergh announced the movie starting shooting and the camera on Twitter.
According to The Playlist, Let Them All Talk cast includes Soderbergh's Laundromat stars, Meryl Streep and Gemma Chan, in the cast. The Laundromat is set to screen at the Venice Film Festival but I guess the actresses liked working with Soderbergh so much they stayed around to make another splash and to shoot this on the sly with him.
That feels like a new move in Hollywood. If the script is tight and you shoot small enough, you can bang out a movie pretty quickly and on the cheap.
Rumor has it, many companies are rolling out the red carpet to bid on this new venture. Perhaps they'll have a reception like Olivia Wilde's recent deal.
For those of you more excited about the camera, Jarred Land, the President of RED DIGITAL CINEMA posted this photo on Instagram earlier to tease you.
