Steven Soderbergh is auctioning off a wealth of memorabilia from his films to raise money for charity.

The director, who is poised to retire from the movie business, is having a clear-out and decided that money could be made from some of the more collectible items.



“I didn't want to throw this stuff away but I didn't want to keep it either, so I figured the smart play was to put it up for auction and donate the money to charity.

“If you have a friend, relative, or child that digs movies, maybe these items would make a great gift or a talisman of some sort.

“100% of all proceeds from this auction will be going to the Children's Aid Society of New York charity.”

Among the items on sale, ranging in price from a $100 (£66) starting bid, are a clapperboard from 'Erin Brockovich' (starting at $250) and framed 'Oceans 13' tickets for its premiere at Cannes starting at $600.

You can check out the items which will go under the hammer at Soderbergh's website.

The 'Magic Mike' helmsman is set to hang up his lenses in the very near future, with his forthcoming HBO feature about the life of Liberace, 'Behind The Candelabra', potentially his last film.
