Based on the book "The Bolivian Diary" by Ernesto 'Che' Guevara; published by Ocean Press November 15, 2005.

Steven Soderbergh was initially attached to direct, but backed out when Terrence Malick came on board. The project was then scheduled for a 4-month shoot in Bolivia beginning July 2004. However, director Terrence Malick left the project in early-March 2004 in order to direct "The New World" for New Line, and was planning to return and film the project in July 2005. By early-april he had dropped out all-together, with Steven Soderbergh once again taking the helm.

Producers Del Toro and Bickford have been working on the project since 1997. Project is part two of Soderbergh's story of Che Guevara. Part one is titled "The Argentine."

IFC Films acquired North American distribution rights at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival.

Parts One and Two will be released as one film in New York City and Los Angeles (one week Oscar qualifying run) December 12, 2008.
