Steven Soderbergh Is Making a 'Sex, Lies, and Videotape' Sequel with Andie MacDowell and Laura San Giacomo
The original stars from the 1989 film are set to reprise their roles
Published Dec 10, 2020Steven Soderbergh revealed earlier this year that he was working on a sequel to his hit 1989 film Sex, Lies, and Videotape, and the director has now got actors Andie MacDowell and Laura San Giacomo to reprise their roles for the new project.
Soderbergh made the reveal during a new interview with Filmmaker Magazine [via Variety].
"When I thought about Sex, Lies, and Videotape, I realized that what I wanted to see is a movie about the two sisters 30 years later," Soderbergh explained of the sequel. "One of them has had a child who is about the same age that she was in the original. Both Andie [MacDowell] and Laura [San Giacomo] have agreed to come on."
Sex, Lies, and Videotape was Soderbergh's first feature film, and it won the Palme d'Or at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival, making the the youngest solo director to win the award. Soderbergh was 26 at the time.
While the director gave no other real details about the sequel to Sex, Lies, and Videotape, he did add that he's re-editing his second film, 1991's Kafka.
"I got back the rights to seven of my films, so I want to put them out as a set with the original versions and the re-edited versions," he explained. "One of them is Kafka. You know I don't read what critics write about my films anymore, but in those days I did, and when I looked at Kafka again, I thought they didn't see what was there. It's a young man's film, and it's far from perfect, but it's also a much more ambitious film than Sex, Lies…. And I think you can see in it the kind of career I would go on to have."
So far, it's unclear when either of these project will actually arrive.
