Movie Preview: “Gringo” Makes Fun of all That Could Go Wrong when Medical Marijuana Comes in Pill Form

When you think of the word “Gringo,” the first actor to come to mind won’t be the African actor David Oleyowo. I guarantee that.

But he’s the hapless representative sent to Mexico with the formula for a new “Medical Marijuana Pill” by um, South African bombshell Charlize Theron and Aussie troublemaker Joel Edgerton (Nash Edgerton directed it).

It might take South African Sharlto Copley to get him out. What do you think they’re saying with the casting here?

Amanda Seyfried’s also in it, and Thandie Newton.

Hey, it’s Amazon Studios. At least they aren’t wasting money on alleged pedophile and proven bomb-maker Woody Allen any more.
