Catalina Sandina Morena Joins Soderbergh's Che Films

Yep, "films."

Did you know that Steven Soderbergh was making a movie about Che Guevara? Starring Benicio Del Toro in the title role? Yeah, me too. But somehow I missed the news that he was making TWO films about the historical figure.

According to Variety, Oscar nominee Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace) will join Oscar winner Del Toro (as well as Julia Ormond, Franka Potente, and Jorge Perugorria) in not one but two films from Mr. Soderbergh: Both The Argentine and Guerrilla will tell the Che Guevara story from two different perspective. I’m guessing here, but I’m getting a Flags of Our Fathers / Letters from Iwo Jima vibe on these projects.

Steven Soderbergh, as you probably already know, is one of those filmmakers who leaps between indie-style and big-budget whenever he feels like it. One one side he gave us sex, lies & videotape, The Limey, Full Frontal, and Bubble — and on the other side we got Out of Sight, Erin Brockovich, Traffic, and the whole Ocean’s series. And then somewhere in the middle are The Good German and Solaris. Pretty impressive if you ask me.

Soderbergh begins his dual-movie project later this month in Spain. For more info on the projects check out this page at Benicio Del Toro’s website.
