Helmer doubles up on Guevara biopics

Steven Soderbergh is finally ready to make his long-gestating biopic of Latin American revolutionary Che Guevara. And the film’s backers are betting that Guevara, who continues to sell books and T-shirts almost 40 years after his execution in Bolivia, has an aura large enough to sustain two films. Soderbergh will shoot them back to back, using mostly Spanish dialogue. Production begins next May in Mexico and other South American locations. Benicio Del Toro will play Guevara, and Javier Bardem, Franka Potente and Benjamin Bratt are in talks to play key roles.
