Benicio del Toro’s Paradise Lost will find itself in theaters in North America in the near future…
Radius-TWC has just closed a $2 million deal with Pathé for the North American rights to the 46-year-old’s Paradise Lost.
Directed by Andrea Di Stefano, the film stars The Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson as a young surfer who visits his brother in Colombia and falls in love with the country, especially when he meets and marries the gorgeous girl of his dreams.
He then he finds himself thrust into the family business. She’s the niece of notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, portrayed by del Toro.
The film also stars Brady Corbet and newcomer Claudia Traisac.
“We have been tracking this project for months and could not be more energized by Benicio’s outstanding performance, Josh’s extraordinary turn and Claudia Traisac’s star-making role,” said Radius presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego. “Di Stefano has delivered the goods and we feel privileged to be working alongside him on this fantastic film.”
