Benicio Del Toro has joined Jamie Foxx in the cast of the upcoming crime thriller The Trap.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Del Toro will appear alongside Foxx in director Harmony Korine's movie about two childhood friends who are now in their 30s - one of whom is very successful and the other has spent most of his adult life in jail.

Just before the successful man is due to receive a big accolade, the other is released from jail and determined to get revenge on his old friend.

Filming on The Trap is due to begin in early 2015.
