Open Road Films has released a new teaser poster for Steven Soderbergh‘s final theatrical film, the psychological thriller SIDE EFFECTS. Oscar-winning Director Steven Soderbergh has made 15 movies since 2000. The film, starring Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Channing Tatum, is about a successful New York couple whose world unravels when a new anxiety medication has unexpected side effects.
Writer Scott Z. Burns Explains How ‘Side Effects’ Is A Sequel To ‘Lolita.’ Burns reveals that the simple fact that antidepressants are some of the best selling drugs in the country planted the seed for the movie.
“There’s a certain kind of complexity to human behavior, and when you layer in the fact that now we have the camouflage of drugs that can change your mood state, that was where we started. We wanted to make a movie that was sort of in the tradition of a Hitchcock mindfuck,” he explained.
Well it’s definitely piqued my interest.
