“It was long hoped that Cannes vet Steven Soderbergh‘s Che Guevara double bill, The Argentine and Guerrilla, would premiere on the Croisette, but it seems that the director, who has wanted either both or neither of the films to play the fest, won’t be able to finish the four-hour-plus opus by deadline. Evidently, Soderbergh has essentially finished the second film but, despite non-stop work in recent weeks, hasn’t quite gotten the first half of the Benicio Del Toro starrer where he wants it.” — from Todd McCarthy‘s Cannes 2008 report in Variety, posted at 8 pm this evening.
