Welcome back, Emile Hirsch. The young actor seemed to have disappeared for a quick moment, but he's coming back with a fury. He's got the indie "Killer Joe" and the blockbuster "The Darkest Hour" headed to screens this year, he's currently filming "The Motel Life" with Stephen Dorff, and now he's adding another project to his plate.

Welcome back, Emile Hirsch. The young actor seemed to have disappeared for a quick moment, but he's coming back with a fury. He's got the indie "Killer Joe" and the blockbuster "The Darkest Hour" headed to screens this year, he's currently filming "The Motel Life" with Stephen Dorff, and now he's adding another project to his plate.

Variety report that he's joining the already ridiculous cast of Oliver Stone's "Savages." Based on Don Winslow‘s book, the story follows two pot dealers—Ben (Aaron Johnson) and Chon (Taylor Kitsch)—who square off against a Mexican drug cartel when their girlfriend Ophelia (Blake Lively) is kidnapped and held for ransom. Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro are already on board as Elena—the Mexican cartel queen who develops maternal feelings for Ophelia—and an enforcer, respectively. John Travolta will play Dennis, a burned out DEA agent while Uma Thurman is going to be Blake Lively’s mom. As for Hirsch, no word yet on what his role is going to be.

Filming on "Savages" kicks off in July, and no word yet on a release date but 2012 is pretty much a guarantee.
