Josh Hutcherson Eyeing Benicio Del Toro’s Pablo Escobar Movie

Paradise Lost, a drama featuring Benicio Del Toro as drug lord Pablo Escobar, is negotiating with The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson for the lead role. He'd play "Nick, a young Irish surfer who visits his brother in Colombia. There he meets the love of his life — until he meets her uncle Pablo." (Does he unmeet her after that, or ...?) The film will be written and directed by Italian actor Andrea di Stefano (Life of Pi, Nine).
