Plot Summary:

George Clooney will produce the film, based on David Grann's New Yorker article, "The Yankee Comandante." The article tells the true story William Alexander Morgan, an American who, in 1959, joined Cuban rebels and helped to overthrow then-President Fulgencio Batista, paving the way for Fidel Castro to become the nation's Prime Minister. Two years after the revolution, however, Morgan was suspected of being a traitor and a U.S. spy and was sentenced to death by firing squad.
