Soderbergh films three Guevara films

StevenSoderbergh.jpgSteven Soderbergh is planning to film two Che Guevera films back to back and a documentary. We heard about Guerrilla earlier in the year starring Benecio Del Toro as Guevara, but he's also planning another called The Argentine.

According to The Guardian Del Toro will also feature as Guevara in The Argentine and Javier Bardem, Franka Potente and Benjamin Bratt are currently in talks to star. (Yeah for Potente!). They also have the break down of what the films will cover.

The Argentine will focus on the Cuban revolution, from the moment Fidel Castro, Guevara and other revolutionaries landed on the Caribbean island, until they toppled the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista two years later.

Guerrilla will focus on the years following the Cuban revolution. It will begin with Che's trip to the UN headquarters in New York in 1964, until his death in the Bolivian mountains in 1967.

While researching the project Soderbergh also filmed a documentary which interviews many who fought alongside Guevara, no word yet on the release of this film though.

He's certainly trying to get his money's worth for the location shooting! Actually this is a really good way of covering someone's life in film if they just have too much for one movie. I'm really keen to see Del Toro in this role and see more of the character and life of Guevara on screen.



But of course! Soderbergh and Guevara! How couldn´t I see that coming? Fool of me...
