First Look at Blake Lively and Benicio Del Toro in SAVAGES

Savages-Lively-Del Toro

Benicio Del Toro is set to return this year in what looks like he found himself one hell of a role in Oliver Stone‘s Savages. Universal Pictures Argentina has tweeted a new still from a film that we’re plenty intrigued about. Del Toro is going to be one serious badass, vicious cartel enforcer Lado in a crime drama, based on the best-selling crime novel by Don Winslow, a great bestselling Southern California author. The story follows two small time marijuana growers — uni grad Ben played by Aaron Johnson and ex-Navy SEAL Chon played by Taylor Kitsch — and their attempts to rescue their apparently shared girlfriend O played by Blake Lively, from a Mexican drug cartel boasting the evil henchman power of Del Toro. The cast includes Uma Thurman as O’s mother and John Travolta as a DEA agent in strong leads which Kitsch recently described to Empire as a cross between ‘Pulp Fiction meets GoodFellas.’ Kitsch also told the papers at the John Carter junket:
This is right in Stone’s wheelhouse. So would the finished Savages be a Hard-R Stone experience? “It’s gotta be,Uma Thurman and John Travolta wouldn’t sign up for anything wishy-washy.
Salma Hayek as the leader of the cartel, the recent Best Actor nominee Demian Bichir as a double-crossing attorney who represents Hayek’s cartel, Joel David Moore as a computer nerd and Emile Hirsch in a still unnamed role have been cast as well. Universal has set a September 28th, 2012 release date. The first images teasing lead henchman Del Toro blowing smoke in Lively’s face. Can’t wait!
