After George Clooney received critical acclaim for 2011's "Ides of March," which he produced, wrote, starred in and directed, he's stretching his directorial chops once again to helm "The Young Commandte."

The film is based on a 23-page article by David Grann in the May 28, 2012 issue of The New Yorker, "The Yankee Comandante." The piece tells the story of U.S. citizen William Alexander Morgan who aided Cuban rebels in 1959 as they sought to overthrow then-President Fulgencio Batista, paving the way for Fidel Castro to take on the role of Cuba's Prime Minister.
