In Total Film magazine, an in depth interview w/ Soderbergh and his films, he had this to say about his new stuff.

SS: "Well, I'm writing a book about The Sopranos and I'm involved in a project called Eros, a kind of triptych movie with Antonioni, Won Kar-wai and me shooting a segment each. It'll be fun- it's only a five-day shoot- but it's already eating into my vacation. So much for me taking a year off to clear my head...

other interesting stuff from the interview-

TF: So is Ocean's Twelve a goer then?
SS: Oh, yeah! I know there's a better version of this movie to be had. When we were coming back from doing press in December 2001, I asked everybody if the idea appealed and they were cool. But they had to make a promise: that is, we're gonna be the first sequel in history that costs exactly the same and the first one. And since the scale of the sequel's gonna be even bigger, they're all gonna have to take an even bigger pay cut than last time. But I think somebody needs to do this- stop the idea that the second one has to be more expensive.

TF: So it's set in Europe, right?
SS: Yeah, it is. But until I go on a reccie, I haven't settled yet on what those three cities in Europe will be. So, you know, I'm thinking of stopping in Amsterdam for- oooh- about a year... [laughs]

There's more but I am falling asleep as we speak, will do the rest later.

Cbrad, always good for Soderbergh updates... Thanks. I like the idea of the sequel costing the same as the first, and I also like how that Oceans 11 group is pretty close and make cameos in each others movies and take big pay cuts.

I want to see the Eros project he's doing. I am not aware of Won Kar-wai's work, but I know Antonioni and it should be pretty neato.

Wong Kar-Wai is the man.  Go see "In the Mood for Love" right fucking now.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

wong kar-wai is great.  he's one of my favorite filmmakers.  watch CHUNGKING EXPRESS (my favorite from his body of work), FALLEN ANGELS, HAPPY TOGETHER and IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE.  his films have an element i really don't see in a lot of american film, energy.

Soderbergh Developing HBO Politics Series

Oscar winner Steven Soderbergh and HBO are developing a television series set in the world of political consulting, says The Hollywood Reporter. HBO is reportedly eyeing a 10-episode commitment to the project, with Soderbergh set to direct the first episode.

The series will be written by filmmaker Henry Bean (The Believer), and it's described as being part scripted, part improv, with current events expected to be woven into the story line. The goal is to shoot each episode one week before it airs to keep the subject matter as current as possible. There is no start date for the project.

Real-life political consultant James Carville, best known as former President Clinton's main campaign strategist, and Michael Deaver, former President Reagan's main media planner during his presidency, are executive producing the project with Soderbergh and George Clooney's Section Eight.

I thought Duck was talking about MacGuffin then...

Never mind Soderbergh, I think MacGuffin needs sectioning.

The boards are quite roomy at the moment, but the plan is not for them to stay that way.
