There is a Hollywood feeding frenzy on who will obtain the movie rights to El Chapo: the Thrilling Inside Story of The American Lawman Who Captures The World’ Most-Wanted Drug Lord. First we suggest whoever wins the rights, Sony Pictures is currently in the lead, needs to shorten the title.
The book by Cole Merrell will be coming out in October, right at the time Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman faces U.S. style justice in New York City. The author’s name is a pseudonym to protect the Drug Enforcement Administration officials’ identify, the agent helped Mexican officials in the 2014 capture of the Sinaloa cartel’s chieftain.
We aren’t sure Stephen Colbert wants to portray El Chapo on the Lifetime channel (we made that up) or on the big screen. Who else can don a Mexican moustache better than Colbert?
“The Late Show” host was kind enough to share an audition tape on how he would portray the head of the Sinaloa cartel.
