El Chapo threatens to sue Netflix/Univision for his life story... he wants his cut

Lucio R. Borderland Beat
(Univision)
One would think Joaquin Guzman Loera, aka “El Chapo”, has bigger fish to fry without worrying what Netflix and Univision are doing, but today his attorney Andres Granados reported to The Associated Press, that if the studios film and air the planned series of Chapo’s life…they will be sued.

It is not that he is opposed to such a project, he just wants his piece of the pie.  He has even offered his services, where for the “right price” he would be willing to assist by providing information that could “make the project better.”

Chapo’s attorney says the networks must pay to use his name and nickname, "If they air this, they are immediately going to be sued.”  His contention is that permission must be obtained from Chapo, because he is not dead.

However, they are “willing to, and it would be a pleasure to, negotiate with them.”

You may recall that Chapo signed exclusive rights to his life story to Kate del Castillo, Chapo’s attorney says, that Castillo would also negotiate with them.

If he is successful in getting paid, it is ironic it will be the first time he has earned legit money not procured through organized crime activities. Albeit, it would be legit money from a project highlighting his illegal activities.

Neither Netflix or Univision has rendered a comment.

Drama has surrounded the leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, since his recapture last July.  It was shortly after the arrest that his family and attorneys began a campaign on his behalf of several grievances.  His wife, who until now has rarely been seen, began a PR onslaught which included dozens of interviews, some televised. 

The initial theme was the great concern for Chapo’s health.  That his human rights were being violated at Altiplano Prison, and his treatment, for example, waking him up from sleep every few hours, had led to never before experienced health issues, such as hypertension.

During that press blitz, Chapo’s wife, Emma, said that Chapo had instructed his attorneys to not fight extradition to the United States, because he felt he would be safer there.

Then on May 7th, Chapo was transferred to Cefereso No. 9  prison in Juarez.  Juarez is most likely the last place he would chose to be imprisoned.  Not only is it filled with violent enemies, who would love to see Chapo dead, but Juarez prisons are the worse in human rights violations, with hundreds killed and multiple deadly riots each year. 

Supposedly, he is isolated from other prisoners, but that has not stopped targeted prisoners from getting killed in the past.

His wife said last week, he is tormented and wishes to return to Altiplano.

However, he has of course changed his mind about the extradition, before the transfer, he began fighting it once again.

In other news about the extradition, the United States has quietly dropped murder charges against Chapo, in attempts to expedite the transfer.

That is of course in Chapo’s favor if he cuts a deal.  Also, is the fact that even though he has served time in three prisons, there has never been a conviction against him in Mexico.

Again, a big positive if he plea bargains, in terms of points when determining sentencing.


He will have no priors.

    2. More likely Chapo thinks it's his story to tell and the money secondary. Would be good marketing for Netflix/Univision to take Mr.Guzman upon his offer.

  5. If he's never been convicted of anything in Mexico how come he was extradited from Guetemala and spent years in prison then?I hope it's not the same for the Doc.Funny it says in the article Chapo's 1st legit business although it's the story of his illegimate business.Isn't there a thing in US about not profiting from crime[like a book].How is Netflix going to get a hold of Chapo anyway.I'm sure he does not want to reveal too much.

    1. Because he was "wanted" as in warrant...an Interpol warrant. Remember Chino? in Amsterdam? U.S. had an international warrant out on him.

      I am sure Canada can file an Interpol warrant on a fugitive

      it is not uncommon for people to spend years in Mexican prison without a trial.

      --in the little town of teotihuacan, where the great mexican pyramids are in the process of being sold to walmart, two guys and a woman have been lynched by a people turned on by accusations of their being "kidnappers"...1 000 police officers ready for the event, armed to the teeth, well empecherados, anti-mutiny experts, could not stop the lynchers from doing the dirty deed...

  9. I read a couple of articles back in January, one in Reforma about him never having a conviction, I could not believe it. You are correct it will work in his favor.

    And correct again he has not made money legitimately, his investments are with drug money. strange, I though he was one of the wealthiest men in the world. what a narcissist, although I am sure it is more about Kate objecting than chapo, granted I may wrong.

  11. Good luck with that Chapo! There is a thing called an "unauthorized biography", so any author has the right to write about his life story. If he wishes to have an authorized version published, he had better get startede. Being a public figure does not grant you the right to sue. At lease in the US. His crimes are public knowledge and illegal. He will have a difficult time suing in the US. He better start his own version in Mexico. The US may not allow him to have a book published. The courts are not so willing in the US to allow a criminal to profit from murders and crimes. His royalties if allowed would be taken for restitution from any authorized biography in the US. Law student here. Just stating the facts as they are. All Netflix/Univision has to do is title it as an unauthorized version. Look at all the serial killers who had books written about them and has yet to get a dime or a chance to sue. They cannot sue.

    1. If they write untrue events. that he can prove are false he can sue... but as for him making money off his story. It depends what state. Country or province you're in. The usa has the "son of sam" law. In canada they can choose after a period of time if the criminal can make money off book sales. Or movie deals. Most of the time they take the cash and give it to the victims society. I learnt of this from that grease ball Robert pickton.

    2. Don't get me wrong not trying to one up you. Just trying to open discussion. And get further knowledge on the issue. But chapo could sue for slanderous remarks. And deferment to character,(if proven they are either of those) like I said not one upping you. Just trying to figure out how he can sue them or not.

    3. Defamation of Character...

    4. Chapo could sue if someone says he's a murderer.After all he's never been convicted in Mexico or charged in US even though Sinaloa Cartel is responsible for 34,000 murders.Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

  12. Good God, how many times do we need to here this. El Chapo or any other narco has no "exclusive rights" to their life story. They're criminals and public figures. Any info about them gained without their cooperation is fair game for movies, books, etc. The only folks with exclusive rights about El Chapo's story are journalists who, through their own work, obtained info not found elsewhere.

Plain and simple. "He is there because he wants to" Sure buddy keep telling yourself that.

  19. He is not aware that some countries (eg USA, Aust, UK,) don't allow convicts to profit from book sales or script sales, interviews? His Mexican lawyer should know that. Not a law student myself but a low level crim and I know that.

    I think he wants to see his name in lights, in the credits or doing it for his legacy, authenticity of the script.

    3. @11:39. Who are you calling a fucking liar? People in cd Juarez are afraid to testify against Chapo because of fear of repercussions against them. I live in El Paso TX and I have seen this in the local newsppaper. You don't even live in Sinaloa. In Durango where CDS controls 400 plus people where found buried in mass graves between 2009 and 2011 there. People of all walks of life were found there including people that spoke up against the narco lifestyle like the priests and some Sinaloa politicians! Musicians get killed by the dozens for singing against CDS. I received threats myself a few years ago when ever I wrote anonymously on the "Historias del Narco" blog some years ago simply because I wrote about shit that CDS did right across the border from ELP in cd Juarez Mexico that I, could witness first or second hand. Do you need articles from newspapers to believe that still? Just because Rio Doce (what ever that is), was allowed to make one interview does not mean CDS does not have a history of killing or at thw very least threatening people that speak against them! They are probably boiling over in anger as I type just like you for saying the truth.
      Yes marinas and army kill people in Mexico also but so does anyone with power in Mexico like CDS does also.

    6. Chapo Guzman is arrested because he sells SHIT-get it SHIT! Nobody forces anybody (for the most part), into taking anything but the fact is Chapo ain't selling candy, water or even food. In order for him to sell this shit he has to KILL other people also trying to sell the same shit. Chapo is not a kind loving person in this game. He always knew what this business was about and this business is illegal.
      Forget that Chapo is a poor guy who only does whats best crap. Tell that to all the people he has killed (or their families), who where also poor and also trying to make it in the game.

  30. Why don't they let Chapo sue these corporations. Let him win all this money. Then give it to all those mothers he left without a son/ daughter cuz he sent them to get killed. All the kids he left orphans cuz he sent their parents to be killed. All those widows who where left to take care of their children alone.

    So where most of the people he ordered to get killed!

  31. Heh production companies are geniuses at wiggling out of this kind of thing, they'll just change the details enough so it can't be said to be his direct likeness and then stick one of those disclaimers in the credits.

    If they wanted to work with him they would have approached him, but they obviously aren't interested in his testimony. They want something light, watchable and loose with the facts.

  33. El Chapo came from a rough childhood and never had the opportunity of a formal education. He went into the only business he knew and who am I to judge right from wrong. I don't want to even go there. On the other hand he was a genius at business management; with people; and could see this and that for improvement. The point I am making is this man was far from stupid and given the opportunity in life could have gone into any business direction and would have been extremely successful. He was gifted with a great ability and to believe some of these stories about him is not the case at hand as he was no fool.
