Sasha Grey is coming up in the world. First Smash Cut and Quit in 2008 and now the staring role in The Girlfriend Experience, a Steven Soderbergh directed film. “To have the opportunity to work for an Academy Award-winning auteur is truly a great honor,” Grey told AVN. “I’ve been an admirer of Soderbergh’s films for years, and I am elated that I have been given a leading role in a character-driven film.” The Girlfriend Experience is part of a six-picture deal Soderbergh has with Mark Cuban and was written by Ocean’s 13 screenwriters’ Brain Kopplman and David Levien. The Girlfriend Experience is low-budget drama and chronicles the life of a high-price call girl. This is a long shot but I’m guessing Grey will be playing the call girl.
