Hot off the NYT presses:

The director Steven Soderbergh, whose body of work includes the films “Schizopolis,” “Kafka” and “Ocean’s Thirteen,” is planning to make a rock ’n’ roll musical about Cleopatra, Variety reported. Mr. Soderbergh, right, is said to be courting Catherine Zeta-Jones to play the Egyptian queen and Hugh Jackman to play her lover, the doomed Roman statesman Marc Antony. Oh, and did we mention he wants to make it in 3-D? A distributor for the film has not been announced. Mr. Soderbergh’s two-part, four-hour biography of Che Guevara, starring Benicio Del Toro, is scheduled for a limited release on Dec. 12.
