RADiUS-TWC has scooped up North American rights to crime drama "Paradise Lost," starring Benicio Del Toro as notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. Josh Hutcherson of "Hunger Games" fame plays a young man who is pulled into the family business after marrying Escobar's niece. 

Brady Corbtt ("Martha Marcy May Marlene") and newcomer Claudia Traisac also star. The film's helmer is a newcomer too, Andrea Di Stefano, making his feature debut. 

Here's the official synopsis:

Young surfer Nick (Hutcherson) thinks all his dreams have come true when he goes to visit his brother in Columbia. Against an idyllic backdrop of blue lagoons and white beaches, he falls madly in love with Maria (Traisac) a beautiful Colombian girl.  Everything seems perfect until he meets her uncle, Pablo Escobar (Del Toro).

RADiUS, who has reportedly been tracking the project for months, is eyeing a 2014 release.
