Cue the bad Irish accent…

‘The Hunger Games’ star Josh Hutcherson is reportedly in talks to star opposite Benicio Del Toro for the Pablo Escobar drama ‘Paradise Lost,’

As previously reported, the film is inspired by true events and follows Nick (Hutcherson), a young Irish surfer who thinks he has found his paradise by joining his brother in Colombia. There he meets and falls madly in love with a beautiful local girl called Maria. Everything seems perfect … until Maria introduces him to her uncle, notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, played by Del Toro.

Production set to get underway in March in Panama with Andrea di Stefano directing.
