Soderbergh making Not One, Not Two, But THREE Che Films
Director Steven Soderbergh is following his WW II drama "The Good German" with three different films about Che Guevara, says Variety. Benicio Del Toro stars as Che (he's no Gael Garcia Bernal, I'll tell ya) in the Cuba-dominated "The Argentine" and the follow-up "Guerrilla" which takes Che from New York to the jungles of South America. Shot in Spanish, it'll be interesting to see if this is Saint Che or a more realistic depiction. At the same time, Soderbergh has been filming a documentary about Che, filming interviews with anyone he can find who knew the man. The budget for all three is about $70 million.
