Bichir to play Castro in Che pics

Actor set for 'Guerilla,' 'Argentine'

Mexican thesp Demian Bichir is set to co-star as Fidel Castro in Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming films “The Guerrilla” and “The Argentine,” opposite Benicio Del Toro’s Che Guevara.

The actor joins Catalina Sandino Moreno, Julia Ormond, Germany’s Franka Potente, Cuban Jorge Perugorria and Spanish actors Jordi Molla, Oscar Jaenada, Eduard Fernandez and Ruben Ochandiano.

Soderbergh began shooting the two-flm project about Latin American revolutionary Guevara earlier this summer in Spain.

The two Spanish-language pics have a combined budget of around $70 million with U.S.-based Guerrilla teaming with Spanish production houses Telecinco Cinema and Morena Films to co-produce. Wild Bunch handles international sales.

Bichir starred opposite Salma Hayek in “Time of the Butterflies” for Showtime. He’s also in the upcoming “Fuera del Cielo” (Beyond the Sky) and “Enemigos Intimos,” (Intimate Enemies) and “American Visa.”
