Add another entry to the already packed cast of Oliver Stone's next project, Savages. Joel David Moore has joined the movie as a computer expert who "moves on from a Washington think tank to the marijuana business," according to THR. You might remember Moore as Norm, one of Jake Sully's pilot buddies in Avatar.
Savages is based on the 2010 novel from Don Winslow. The story involves Ben and Chon, two friends who run a marijuana operation in Laguna Beach. Their operation is threatened by a Mexican drug cartel who kidnaps one of their female confidants and sets into motion an escalating conflict.
Along with Moore, the cast includes Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, Salma Hayek, Benicio del Toro, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, and Emile Hirsch. Savages currently has a release date of September 28, 2012.
