"Variety reports talented young actor Emile Hirsch (Speed Racer, Into the Wild) has also joined the cast.

It's not mentioned what role Hirsch will be taking, but production is slated to start this summer. For those just joining us, you can find details on the story below.
The story follows two young, independent Laguna Beach marijuana kingpins (Kitsch and Johnson) who are blackmailed into working for the Baja Cartel after their girlfriend Ophelia (Blake Lively) is kidnapped and held for a ransom of every last dollar they've made for the past five years. Travolta will play a burned out DEA agent named Dennis while Thurman plays Ophelia's mother. The meanwhile, Benicio del Toro is playing a cartel enforcer named Lado and Salma Hayek as a Mexican cartel queen-pin named Elena. Sounds pretty damn good to me and the cast just keeps getting better and better, too". Source: www.firstshowing.net
