Soderbergh's Kafka Gets a Re-Cut

Mystery Thriller With Jeremy Irons Gets Altered

We might know it from older family members: just because you've reached your pension, it doesn't mean that you want to stop working and so different ways to keep being busy are discovered. Director Steven Soderbergh announced that he's likely to retire from filmmaking but that doesn't mean that he's completely done with the subject. For instance, he is currently busy editing a new cut of his second directorial effort Kafka starring Jeremy Irons, which came out in 1991.

In doing so, Soderbergh aims to make the film even harder to access. Also, he hopes to undo some mistakes he made when he was still a little inexperienced:

Soderbergh says that the already arty movie is going to get, well, artier. “I was frustrated with 'Kafka' – it had a mixed-to-negative reaction when it came out – and I’m trying to completely rethink it in the hopes of at least turning it into something that’s unified. The tone was all over the place – which is the classic young filmmaker’s mistake. I’d like to make it a little more abstract and more of a hardcore art movie. It’s not a tweak: it’s triage,” he said of the movie that he says will be shorter. (Empire)

The director would also like to produce a German audio track for the American market but doesn't seem to be set in stone just yet. This Midnight Edition is supposed to be released alongside the original version on Blu-ray. Especially in the US, that's about time since there's not even a DVD right now.
