Production Weekly reports that Steven Soderbergh's next film will be Guerilla, a biopic about Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, starring Benjamin Bratt.

The story will explore the life of the revolutionary leader. Born in 1928, Ernesto "Che" Guevara first trained as a doctor before becoming Fidel Castro's chief lieutenant.

Guerilla is set to begin production January 21 in New York with locations in the Mexican state of Veracruz.

Next year, Soderbergh is also scheduled to direct Life Interrupted, the monologue that Spalding Gray was working on when he died in the early winter of 2004.
