Benicio Del Toro Signs On For Mafia Movie
Benicio Del Toro, star of The Wolfman, has signed up to play Jack Garcia in new mobster flick Making Jack Falcone.
According to DeadlineHollywood the film is based on the book of the same name by FBI agent Jack Garcia.
The agent infiltrated the mob and managed to bring down 39 members of the infamous Gambino family. Garcia became so well respected by family that they offered to make him ‘a made man,’ little did they know he was actually a Cuban-born cop.
Not exactly a fly on the wall, Garcia was 6’4″ and 390 pounds, so it looks like Del Toro will have to pile on the pounds to be authentic. Steven Soderbergh is attached to produce but it looks like the project is still looking for a director.
