In the same vein as Spotlight, a new drama is coming out to explore how investigative journalists exposed the Panama Papers, the nearly 12 million documents detailing how world leaders and celebrities utilized offshore law firms to escape taxes.

Steven Soderbergh is set to produce the as-yet untitled work, but he may also direct, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Michael Sugar, who produced Spotlight, and Lawrence Grey will also produce the drama.

The Ocean’s Eleven director will base the film on the forthcoming book Secrecy World by Jake Bernstein, one of the reporters involved in investigating the Panama Papers.
