Steven Soderbergh will next direct Guerilla, a biopic about Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara that will star Benjamin Bratt, reports Production Weekly.

Born in 1928, Ernesto "Che" Guevara first trained as a doctor before becoming Fidel Castro's chief lieutenant. In 1967, he was captured and executed by Bolivian forces.

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

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