Deadline said Josh Hutcherson will co-star in PARADISE LOST starring Benico Del Toro as the infamous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.
PARADISE LOST marks the feature directorial of Andrea di Stefano who also wrote the script.
This $25 Million budget thriller romance is going to be filmed in Panama, produced by Dimitri Rassam’s Chapter 2.
The story, inspired by true events, is about a young surfer named Nick who visits his brother in Colombia, and falls in love with a beautiful local girl called Maria but lo and behold, Maria’s uncle is .. Pablo Escobar, dun, dun, dun!
So this is not straight up biopic, it would move and feel more like The Last King Of Scotland which was about Idi Amin
Hutcherson plays Nick
