It took just over a month into 2013 for yet another project about a famed drug lord to come to the fore. We already know about "Paradise Lost," the romance that will relegate Pablo Escobar to an interesting supporting player but embodied by none other than Benicio Del Toro. And there there is the development roadway, littered with projects by guys like Oliver Stone, Antoine Fuqua, Brad Furman and Joe Carnahan, that are either in development or once were. However, when Netflix honcho Ted Sarandos tells GQ, "The goal is to become HBO faster than HBO can become us," he's not fucking around. So we think this next attempt to bring Escobar back to life has a better chance than most.
