Steven Soderbergh to try and make another baseball movieNot Moneyball, according to MTV Movies blogger Larry Carroll:
“Yeah, I have another idea for a baseball movie that actually doesn’t have any baseball in it,” the “Informant!” filmmaker revealed to us recently and more than a bit cryptically. “I am going to see MLB when I’m in New York to talk to them about it.”
Carroll speculates that it could be a Jose Canseco/steroids or a Pete Rose kind of thing. Those ideas sound too ESPN-cheapie-movie to me. Any guesses about what real-life baseball story would be Soderbergh-worthy? He already did "Solaris" and I can't see anything moving slower than that, so "The Steve Trachsel Story" is out.

The original Solaris (by a Russian director named Tarkovsky, I think) is certainly the slowest movie that I’ve really liked. Infinitely slower than most popular movies.
I saw an even slower movie by the same director, and that one I totally didn’t get. Argh. But I found Solaris hypnotic, contemplative, moving.
I don’t suppose the Soderbergh movie could be about the family-swapping Yankee pitchers? Maybe Soderbergh has been looking at the movie ideas in the Historical Abstract…

Well, there’s the original “Solyaris” for one.
