Soderbergh To Make 'Che' Movie

the revolutionary after eating abowl of peppered enchiladasExciting news.

A film based on the last days of Argentinian revolutionary and romantic icon Ernesto 'Che' Guevara will be made by the great Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Erin Brockovich, Oceans 11). The film will be titled Guerilla. It is said to be based on recently declassified CIA files on the medical doctor-turned-revolutionary leader.

busier than a mailman on FridayWow, this is wonderful. Never has there been any real movie that has given justice to the life of the revolutionary Che (coughEvitacough) Walter Salles' The Motorcycle Diaries dealt more on Che's adventurous youth and the formation of his ideals while traveling the Hispanic countryside but never touched on his real revolutionary days, but however, is still a great film in itself.

bad@ss foreverEqually exciting is the casting of Che. It is said thet Benicio Del Toro will play Che. I personally could not think of anyone better. With BT's great physical resemblance and his amazingly wide acting range (check him out in Traffic), not to mantion his working experience with Soderbergh himself, I could hardly think of anything going wrong with this one.
