Steven Soderbergh thriller The Bitter Pill picks up a release date

Steven Soderbergh directing CONTAGION

Once called THE SIDE EFFECTS and now called THE BITTER PILL, Steven Soderbergh's next film has been at last penciled in for a release date.

Starring Rooney Mara, Jude Law, Channing Tatum, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, the Scott Z. Burns (CONTAGION) scripted psychopharmacology thriller concerns "a troubled young woman who develops a dangerous love triangle between her doctor (Jude Law) and her newly paroled husband (Tatum)."

Supposedly this is one of the last films we'll get out of Soderbergh before he retires, so if you're at all a fan of his work I'd say this is a good opportunity to support both the consistently quality product he puts out and the ways in which he constantly challenges himself to change things up. And as it seems that these days the best way to show appreciation for something in the film industry is with cold cash, I'll most definitely see you at the theater on February 22nd, 2013.

In other news, here is a set-photo that showcases a much-changed Rooney Mara:
