Cameron Diaz (Bad Teacher, Charlie’s Angels) and Benicio del Toro (Traffic, Sin City) have been cast opposite each other in the upcoming action-comedy, penned by the Stuart Little screenwriter Greg Brooker.
Diaz will play a real estate agent and recent divorcee who ends up getting kidnapped and thrown into the middle of a Mexican drug war. She must then use her “maternal instincts and a streak of pure dumb luck” to make it back home. Action-comedies are well within Diaz’ wheelhouse, but it’s a nice change of pace for Del Toro, who has mostly stuck to dramas and thrillers.
Agent: Century 21 will be directed by Adam Hashemi, who will be making his directorial debut.
