Rodrigo Santoro is to star opposite Will Smith in new heist movie Focus.
Written and directed by Crazy, Stupid, Love filmmakers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, the film is about an experienced con man, played by Will, who ends up falling for a novice female con artist, played by Margot Robbie.
Now 300 hunk Rodrigo has been cast as the powerful owner of an international car racing team who becomes a rival for her affections, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Will's character gets thrown off his game when his old flame shows up just as he's staging an elaborate con in Buenos Aires. Rodrigo hires Will to gain a competitive edge for his racing team, and also starts competing for Margot's affections.
The film is due to start shooting in October in New Orleans and Buenos Aires.
