Porn star Sasha Grey is to take the lead in a low-budget outing from Oscar winner Steven Soderbegh. Moving on from his extended epic Che, to a movie more in keeping with his Sex Lies and Video Tape days, The Girlfriend Experience will follow a high-price call girl (guess who?!).

The drama, will be the first in a six film run funded by media entrepreneur Mark Cuban and was penned by screenwriters Brian Koppelman and David Levien, of Ocean’s 13 fame.

Messed Up
Having looked into the background of this actress she does appear to originate from the more extreme spectrum. Apparently in her first shoot at the age of 18 she shocked a harded (forgive the pun) gonzo porn actor by asking him to hit her in the stomach as hard as he could. Some of the other films she is supposed to have acted in suggest a rather S&M approach to life. Quite a brave casting but at the same time I suppose she must have shown some acting talent to have got the role. More

Just what is it about mainstream filmakers wanting to make Porn?
Michael Winterbottom, Ang Lee, Steven Soderbergh, and even ol' Kubrick (well maybe not Kubrick, but he did have a long-running joke with Terry Southern that he would like to). What's next, The Coens pick up on the early joke in 'Superbad' and make a porno "with you know, some production values, a little transition...?" Get Paul Verhoevenback over to the USA, give him $200million and a white card More
