The story of the most famous drug kingpin in history, Pablo Escobar, has been in an “It’s Complicated” relationship with Hollywood for years. After the much-buzzed-about “Killing Pablo” with Javier Bardem and Christian Bale fell through in 2003, and the fictional “Medellin” starring Vinny Chase in “Entourage,” Hollywood just hasn’t been able to commit to Pablo, until now. “Escobar: Paradise Lost” from actor-turned-director Andrea Di Stefano, starring Benicio del Toro and Josh Hutcherson, has legitimate hype.
The “Hunger Games” star will play a young surfer cacationing in Colombia who meets the woman of his dreams, but her uncle happens to be Escobar (del Toro).
And now, the first official photos from the film are here, showing everything one would hope for: Love, danger, guns, sex and sweat.
