While Soderbergh was unimpressed with early films about the Argentine revolutionary, he admits he was pleasantly surprised by the critically-acclaimed Walter Salles film, which starred Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal.
The OCEAN'S TWELVE film-maker is currently shooting his Guevara movie GUERRILA, starring Benicio Del Toro as the medical student-turned-communist fighter.
Soderbergh says, "It's also raised the bar of Guevara biopics, which has made my job 10 times harder.
"Benicio and I have been talking about it since TRAFFIC. Che's a very complicated subject, there's a lot of story there and the story we're going to tell is a war movie."
