El Chapo Guzman Goes Hollywood

Ever since we first heard of El Chapo Guzman, it seems Hollywood has been trying to cash in with the world of drug cartels. Below are just a couple of examples.

The FX TV network developed the series The Bridge. Two detectives work together to take down a serial killer operating on both sides of the Texas-Chihuahua border. This series was very popular but ended up getting cancelled after two seasons.

Netflix developed the web series Narcos which tells the story of the drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. So far there have been 2 season and there is talks of more seasons for the popular series.

Sicario, starting Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro hit the big screen in 2015. An idealistic FBI agent is enlisted by a government task force to aid in the escalating war against drugs at the border area between the U.S. and Mexico.

Now Hollywood wants to cash in with the story of El Chapo Guzman. Sony Pictures is trying to get the rights to Hunting El Chapo, a book by Cole Merrell and Douglas Century about the pursuit of the elusive Mexican drug cartel leader. Currently there are no further details on the movie but I am sure we will hear more about this film.
