If your current film is a four-hour Spanish-language biopic of Che Guevara, what do you do for an encore?

Variety reports that Soderbergh is hot after Catherine Zeta-Jones for the title role and Hugh Jackman for Marc Antony. The band Guided By Voices will apparently supply the music. Soderbergh’s Cleopatra figures to be cheaper than Elizabeth Taylor’s 1963 version, which Wikipedia says cost $44 million—the modern equivalent of $295 million.
