Not to be confused with the stalled Paradise Lost, which was set to star Bradley Cooper as a fallen angel in the midst of a heavenly war, or the documentary of the same name focusing on the West Memphis 3, director Andrea Di Stefano's Paradise Lost follows a young Irish surfer who falls in love with Columbian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar's niece.

Benicio Del Toro is attached to star as Pablo Escobar, with The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson signing onto play Nick, the water sports enthusiast who, while visiting his brother, falls head over heels for a young woman tied to Columbia's biggest exporter of cocaine.

This biopic will mark the directorial debut of Andrea Di Stefano, who last wrote the screenplay for Life of Pi, and also adapted Eat, Pray, Love for the big screen. Paradise Lost begins production in March, in Panama.

Escobar: Paradise Lost comes to theaters November 26th, 2014 and stars Josh Hutcherson, Benicio Del Toro, Brady Corbet, Claudia Hernández, Carlos Bardem, Ana Girardot, Laura Londoño, Lauren Ziemski. The film is directed by Andrea Di Stefano.
