Steven Soderbergh has a new distribution model.

Film Not only does Soderbergh have a new film upcoming but a whole new way of releasing it wide without a major studio in the US:
"There’s no one component that hasn’t been done before, but I think it’s a combination of components. There have been advancements in technology that make it a lot easier to get a movie out in 3,000 screens than it was even two years ago. The economic model is pretty simple. You sell the foreign to cover the cost of the [film] negative. We sell the non-theatrical rights to cover the cost of the [prints and advertising], and that’s it. It’s really simple. People have done this before. The distribution part is only a little different because we control it in a way that you normally don’t get to control distribution."
Also sounds like he was a hands on producer for Ocean's Eight, so he's back, back, back.
