Steven Soderbergh Quits Film? — Does Success Make People Lazy?

Written by , Posted in General

Steven Soderbergh announced that he’ll likely quit the film industry, saying, “it’s time.”  “When you reach the point where you’re like if I have to get into a van to do another 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.”  Can somebody please explain to me when successful people got so damn lazy?  First Billy Joel refuses to write new music, and then Phil Collins announces his retirement.  Doesn’t Steven Soderbergh have more work to do?  How many successful films did Steven Spielberg churn out before he got lazy?  Oh yeah — he’s still working.  I guess Spielberg likes his van.
