Soderbergh told Andersen:

    "When you reach the point where you're like if I have to get into a van to do anther scout I'm just going to shoot myself, it's time to let somebody else who's still excited about getting in the van, get in the van. And so it's just time. For the last three years, I've been turning down everything that comes my way, so you're not going to have Steven Soderbergh to kick around anymore."

The filmmaker says after he shoots Liberace, starring Matt Damon and Michael Douglas, and Man From U.N.C.L.E., starring George Clooney, he'll call it quits.
