Despite emerging from America’s war on drugs as a billionaire gangster antihero, the closest that Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar has ever come to getting a major film treatment was the Vinnie Chase vehicle Medellin on Entourage. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the late Escobar is finally getting his moment in the spotlight with Escobar, a biopic starring Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz and directed by Familia’s Fernando Leon de Aranoa.
Escobar will be based on Virginia Vallejo’s 2008 best-selling Spanish-language memoir Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar. Vallejo is a journalist who was granted asylum in the U.S. after her work exposing Colombian government corruption and connections to cartels led to numerous death threats; in her memoir, she describes both her romantic relationship with Escobar and the rapid growth of the cocaine industry in Colombia. The movie will chart the rise of Escobar, a former petty thief and kidnapper who built a cocaine empire worth over $3 billion before being gunned down in a police raid in 1993.
Looks like another really, really, ridiculously good-looking person is joining the cast of “Zoolander 2.”
Actress Penelope Cruz will appear in the upcoming sequel to the popular 2001 film, Ben Stiller announced Friday.
Stiller, who plays the title role of male model Derek Zoolander, dropped the news by sharing a photo of “Little Penny” Cruz as a child and saying he was “excited” to welcome her to the cast.
Penelope Cruz attended the Goya Film Awards Ceremony at the Prince Felipe Congress Center in Madrid on February 7, 2015. Check out the pictures in our gallery!
