Moviemaker Oliver Stone is set to turn Don Winslow's bestselling novel Savages into a major new film, starring Aaron Johnson and Salma Hayek.
The film, set in Laguna Beach, California, chronicles two marijuana growers' battle with the Mexican drug mafia.
Reports suggest Stone is keen to cast Johnson, Hayek and Taylor Kitsch as his leads.
Winslow is working on the screenplay with Stone, according to the OC Weekly newspaper.
