During a remote interview on the YouTube series Flaviar’s NightCap Live, the writer-director mentioned that he’s written three screenplays during the shutdown, including the sequel to his breakthrough film. He said that the sequel “is an idea that had been circling for a while.”

“When the lockdown happened here in New York,” Soderbergh says, “in order to stay organized and sane, I decided I’m going to write…So within the first 6 or 7 weeks of the lockdown, I finished 3 screenplays. One of them was a rewrite, one of them was an original, and one was an adaptation of a novel that I’ve been wanting to do. The original was a sequel to Sex, Lies, and Videotape. It was an idea that had been circling for a while, and I felt like I came up with the way to get back in, and so I wrote it, and I want to make it.”

No plot details for the sequel were revealed. The other two scripts Soderbergh says he wrote include a rewritten script as well as a novel adaptation.

Sex, Lies, and Videotape was written and directed by Soderbergh, who received an Oscar nomination for Best Writing. The film also received three Golden Globe nominations and won the Palme d’Or at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival. The movie starred James Spader, Andie MacDowell, Peter Gallagher, and Laura San Giacomo and centered around a sexually repressed woman’s husband who is having an affair with her sister. The arrival of a visitor with a rather unusual fetish changes everything. In 2006, the film was added to the U.S. Library of Congress’ National Film Registry.
