Jason Patric as the Villain in The Losers?

The cast for the adaptation of "The Losers" has been filling out nicely, but there has been one notable missing piece: the criminal mastermind Max. According to Ain't It Cool News, Jason Patric is the frontrunner for the role. If true, Patric's addition would further bolster a fantastic cast which features Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen), Columbus Short (Quarantine), and Joe Saldana (Star Trek). "The Losers" is about a special forces unit that is betrayed by their leader, Max. The unit turns their attention to tracking down Max, looking for revenge.
