That's a huge deal.It's not really. I think AP wanted to make the movie but WB prob just made a better offer. Def no bad blood or anything.

Quote from: modage on May 06, 2013, 02:17:45 PMBigger question is: What's in this script (and/or who's in the cast) that made WB want to fork over the dough? Cause you know PTA still has final cut and approval over all the marketing.

QuoteWell, it looks like we aren't the only ones dropping "Inherent Vice" casting news today. The Wrap is reporting that Benicio Del Toro may be joining the film as well (though the studio has yet to confirm his involvement). According to the report Del Toro will be playing "an attorney who's always trying to help the protagonist out of trouble, though he's not an actual criminal lawyer. The character isn't a major role but is expected to be a potential scene-stealer" which would seem to indicate he'll be playing Doc's lawyer, Sauncho Smilax. His leading role in the underrated "Che" aside, it's been a while since we've seen Del Toro really tear into a really great role like his brilliant late 90s/early 00s streak ("Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas," "Traffic," "21 Grams," "The Usual Suspects," etc.), so this is definitely exciting news. Filming on 'Vice' is set to get underway later this month so there should be lots more casting announcements to come. And if you're involved with the production, why don't you drop us a line?
