It seems Hollywood can't get enough of Laguna Beach, our county's best seaside town.
Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone is building a cast for a crime thriller film based Don Winslow's Savages, a novel about two Laguna Beach marijuana growers who piss off a Mexican drug cartel.
According to various news outlets, Stone wants to cast Kick Ass's Aaron Johnson, Wolverine's Taylor Kitsch and Salma Hayek.
Stone is reportedly working on the screen adaption of the novel with Winslow and hoping Universal will soon agree to distribute the film.
