Pablo Escobar. The Colombian druglord who is considered one of the greatest villains in history is coming to Hollywood’s big screen and Benicio del Toro will play him in “Paradise Lost”.
This will be the first Escobar movie that will made of him, even though Telemundo’s current hit novela, “Pablo Escobar, El Patrón del Mal” is like a mini-movie.
His story has been trying to lift off the ground by various directors: The Grey director Joe Carnahan, The Lincoln Lawyer director Brad Furman, and actors were supposed to play him such as: Javier Bardem, Edgar Ramirez, but no go. It’s been in development hell.
