Steven Soderbergh Finishes Next Film While No One is Looking


While promoting The Informant! today in Toronto, Steven Soderbergh casually announced he had finished his documentary about the late writer and monologist Spalding Gray. Not that it didn't take a while: "Because I've never really made a documentary before and I didn't want it to be like other documentaries [...], there was a lot of trial and error about what form it should take, and now I'm really happy with it." Soderbergh went on to say the film compiles footage of Gray as a sort of "new monologue in a way," adding that he's taking the film to the Slamdance Film Festival for a premiere next January. Why wait? Bust it out in Canada! Willem Dafoe might appreciate the competition. [First Showing]
