Benicio Del Toro and Steven Soderbergh will probably make a good movie... or 2...

If you were a fan of 2003's The Motorcycle Diaries- a film which chronicled the formative years of Latin American activist Che Guevara, then brace your self for some pretty promising news. Damn near flawless director Steven Soderbergh and the equally flawless thespian Benicio Del Toro have finally gotten their dream collaberation into production: a two-film telling of Guevara's uprising, influence, and execution. The first film entitled "The Argentine" will focus on Guevara's arrival on the Cuban shore along side other exiles led by Fidel Castro; whereas the next film "Guerilla" will focus on his speaking to the United Nations and his final years in South America. The two films are set to be filmed back to back beginning next Spring. Soderbergh and Del Toro have been planning the project since the two first collaborated back in 2000 for the acclaimed hit Traffic. With Steven Soderbergh at the helm, and Benicio Del Toro starring, I really don't see how this film could be any thing but stellar. Anticipate it along with me.

Steven Soderbergh's next film is set for release this holiday season- The Good German stars George Clooney, Cate Blanchett, Tobey Maguire, and none other than Beau Bridges.

Benicio Del Toro can next be seen along side Halle Berry in the drama Things We Lost in the Fire.
