The Public has been developing the play, about a survivor of the Columbine shootings, this past past year, according to an earlier interview with Burns. It is based on Dave Cullen's 2009 book "Columbine."
The Public did not immediately respond to Playbill.com's request for comment regarding the project.

Soderbergh is the Academy Award-winning director of "Traffic," as well as "Behind the Candelabra," "Erin Brockovich," "Sex, Lies, and Videotape" and "Magic Mike."
