Benicio Del Toro will be reunited with director Oliver Stone in an upcoming drama dubbed “White Lies”.
The film, which Stone will direct from his own script, marks a departure from his previous work — including “Savages” which also starred del Toro — and is said to explore the themes of family, loss, and love (via Variety).
In a story spanning three generations, Del Toro will play a child of divorce now repeating his parents’ mistakes in his own marriage and with his troubled son. Feeling trapped, he embarks on a lust-filled journey to free himself, but only becomes more lost, until he meets a woman whose life is the opposite of his own, and embarks on a journey of rediscovery.
Bringing the two Oscar winners together again, “White Lies” will be the second project for Del Toro and Stone — following the thriller “Savages”, which they collaborated on in 2012.
Production for “White Lies” is scheduled to begin in New York in spring 2019, with additional casting currently underway.
