Benicio Del Toro as Pablo Escobar: The Uncle No One Wants

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Benicio Del Toro is Pablo Escobar. Let that sink in.

It's not a stretch for a man who has made a career being involved in one drug related movie after another, but this time he's the man in charge. The big cheese. The big enchilada. The big kahuna. The dude with all the cocaine.

See what we mean in the following image, courtesy of the upcoming drama Paradise Lost:

Benicio Del Toro as Pablo Escobar

A movie about Pablo Escobar seems rather straightforward, right?

Well... Paradise Lost is actually a romantic thriller starring Josh Hutcherson as a starry eyed surfer who falls head over heels for a pretty girl. That pretty girl just happens to be Pablo Escobar's niece. A nice twist if they can pull it off.  

Paradise Lost is at the tail end of filming, so hopefully info will be more plentiful in coming months.

For now, let's entertain ourselves with even more Hutcherson in this Catching Fire trailer!
