Benicio del Toro and Patricia Arquette are attached to star in a Showtime limited series, “Escape at Clinton Correctiona” Variety has learned.

Ben Stiller will serve as executive producer and will direct all eight episodes.

The eight-part series is in development, though sources say the pay cabler is close to giving the greenlight. Our insiders also caution Del Toro and Arquette are still in negotiations, but their deals are expected to close soon.

Showtime declined to comment.

The project is based on the prison break in upstate New York in the summer of 2015, which spawned a massive manhunt for two convicted murderers, Richard Matt and David Sweat, who were aided in their escape by a married female prison employee with whom they both became sexually entangled.

Del Toro will play convicted murderer Richard Matt. Arquette will play Tilly Mitchell, the female prison employee. Casting for the character of Sweat is underway.

“Escape at Clinton Correctional” will be written by Brett Johnson Michael Tolkin, who met while working as writers on Showtime’s “Ray Donovan.” Along with Stiller, Johnson and Tolkin, executive producers are Bryan Zurif, Michael De Luca and Nicky Weinstock. Michael De Luca Productions and Red Hour Productions are behind the limited series.

Del Toro is repped by CAA. Arquette is repped by Gersh.

While fans are eagerly anticipating next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, more production news has surfaced. With executive producer Kevin Feige confirming that Thanos (Josh Brolin), will be the focus of the film, it’s no surprise that the holder of the ‘reality gem’, The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) will be appearing.

In a recent Instagram live stream, Brolin revealed that he will be filming scenes with Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Salanda (Gamora), as well as Del Toro, who had not been previously confirmed. The video had since been deleted though.

November 5, 2016 News, Soldado

Turns out the production team behind “Sicario” enjoyed its time in New Mexico so much that it’s bringing the sequel back to the Land of Enchantment.

The New Mexico Film Office announced that “Soldado,” is starting production in the state through January.

Filming locations include Albuquerque, To’hajiilee, Laguna Pueblo, Bernalillo and Algodones. Production will be completed in Mexico.

Nick Maniatis, Film Office director, said it’s great that production companies are bringing repeat business to the state.

“It really says something when a company like Black Label Media does two projects in a row in New Mexico, has a great experience, and immediately brings in another one with a fourth on the way,” he said. “You know you’re doing something right when that happens. And we really appreciate a company like Black Label and their commitment to New Mexico.”

“Soldado” finds Oscar winner Benicio Del Toro reprising his role as the inscrutable attorney-turned-assassin Alejandro, paired on screen with Oscar nominee Josh Brolin, who returns as the pragmatic CIA operative Matt Graver. Joining the cast is Oscar nominee Catherine Keener, who will portray Graver’s boss.

Stefano Sollima will direct from an original script by Taylor Sheridan, who also wrote the New Mexico-filmed “Sicario” and “Hell or High Water.”

“Soldado” follows the character of Alejandro, played by Del Toro as he makes a deadly alliance with Matt, played by Brolin, to take on the new crown jewel of Mexico’s cartels: human trafficking.

According to the film office, the production will employ about 200 New Mexico crew members, 70 New Mexico actors and stunt performers, and 1,500 New Mexico background talent. Background talent will include military and Hispanic men, women and children of all ages. Individuals wishing to be cast as background talent should upload a photo and contact information at egcasting.com or email a photo with height, weight, and phone number to castingabq@gmail.com.
