Fresh off his incredibly successful 2019, Adam Driver is set for his next big starring role. As first reported by Variety, Drive will star in Yankee Comandante with Mud‘s Jeff Nichols tapped to direct.
Based on the 2012 New Yorker article written by David Grann, the story focuses on two soldiers as they rise to the rank of Comandante during the Cuban Revolution. However, while one turns out to be Argentine Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, the other is a man from Ohio. Production will reportedly begin in 2021, hopefully following the coronavirus pandemic.
Driver spent 2019 starring in a host of films. His roles in Netflix’s Marriage Story and Amazon’s The Report earned him praise and award consideration. However, his reprisal of Kylo Ren in The Rise of Skywalker helped steer the Star Wars film towards its $1.074 billion worldwide gross.
At the time of this writing, no studio is on-board to distribute the film. However, it will reportedly be produced by Imperative Entertainment and 30West. Moreover, Yankee Comandante will be Jeff Nichols’s first film since his critically acclaimed 2016 films Loving and Midnight Special. The upcoming film will also reunite the Nichols and Driver, with the latter appearing in the aforementioned Midnight Special.
