The producers of “Paradise Lost,” a movie on Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, released the first photo of actor Benicio del Toro dressed up as the arguably most infamous Colombian in history.
The movie, set to be released in 2014, is about a young surfer who falls in love with the niece of Escobar.
