Steven Soderbergh will direct “The Girlfriend Experience” for 2929 Entertainment reports Variety.
Brian Koppelman and David Levien (“Ocean’s Thirteen”) will pen the story which focuses on the world of prostitution from the vantage point of a $10,000-a-night call girl. Soderbergh may set an adult film actress to play the lead role.
Soderbergh is finishing up his Spanish-language Che Guevara biopics presently, and will lense “The Informant” with Matt Damon for Warner Bros. as his next film. Then he’ll turn to “The Girlfriend Experience,” which will be shot over two weeks this fall.
The project marks the second film of a six-picture pact Soderbergh made to direct low-budget films that get distributed simultaneously in theatrical, on cable TV and on DVD (“Bubble” was the first).
