Soderbergh's 'Girlfriend'

Stephen Soderbergh will pair again with Ocean’s Thirteen writers Brian Koppelman and David Levien for The Girlfriend Experience. The film will detail “the world of prostitution from the vantage point of a $10,000-a-night call girl.” (Variety) This is the second film for Soderbergh to be financed and distributed by Mark Cuban’s 2929 Entertainment and HDNet companies, after his brilliant but overlooked small-scale production, Bubble (2005 – Trailer). Like Bubble, where he cast non-professional Ohio natives as leads, Soderbergh might also go the non-traditional route with Girlfriend: he’s considering using an adult-film actress to play a woman who makes a million a year as an escort.

Prior to The Girlfriend Experience, Soderbergh’s two Spanish language Che Guevara biopics, Guerrilla and The Argentine, with Benicio Del Toro cast as Guevara, will premiere at Cannes next month.
