Filmmaker claims he turned down Chapo over safety concerns

Posted by Mica for Borderland Beat Hollywood Reporter

“I said, ‘Tell Mr. Chapo, first of all, good job on your escape’.... I will not be making a film".


Filmmaker Peter Berg has abandoned plans to make a movie about drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman for fear his Los Angeles boxing gym could be targeted by Latino thugs.

The crime boss was recaptured in January, 2016, after spending months on the run in the jungles of Mexico following an escape from prison.

During his bid for freedom, El Chapo met with actor Sean Penn and agreed to be the subject of a Rolling Stone magazine interview, while making it clear he was interested in a movie about his life.
And now Deepwater Horizon director Berg has revealed he almost took on the project.

“I got out of the El Chapo business,” the filmmaker, who owns the Wild Card West boxing gym, tells The Hollywood Reporter. “We have a lot of Hispanic fighters from Mexico. Two days after his (El Chapo’s) escape, two of my fighters came in and asked if they could talk to me, and then told me that El Chapo wanted to meet with me.

“That’s when I realized, ‘Hollywood thinks it’s a cool idea to make a movie’. (But) this is a very dangerous group of individuals. And this is my gym, where I work out and train, and my child comes in.


“I said, ‘Tell Mr. Chapo, first of all, good job on your escape’. I will not be making a film. I wish him all the best.”

    3. He sigle handedly fucked up the existing treaties that each cartel had. When the Guadalajara Cartel was split treaties still existed. Chapo comes into the picture and destroyed them all.

    4. Your probably from Sonora or Sinaloa. "Indians from the south" that's what Mexicans call Mexicans even tough we were all Indians. Tonto! Nice try...

    6. BS the indians in Northern Mexico, like the Tarahumara, would refute your claim. Besides your run on sentances and grammer like using the letter H has if was silent makes u suspicious

  5. Sure someone will be willing to make the move. People have always been intrigued with crime . Moreover with the criminal empire the Sinaloa cartel established is definitely a money maker at box office. Question is what is chapo cut for production of such. It's his name brand like Trump brand. Both businessmen

    1. Well, with all due respect, how else should one refer to career criminals affiliated with the Surenos and employed by the cartels? I've spent quite some time in that very gym, which is located on Santa Monica and Vine in West Hollywood. Make no mistake about it, the men who control the underworld in that neighborhood are very accurately described as "latino thugs". Please, enlighten me as to what you would refer to these ruthless criminals as?

      Delete
    2. 5:49 . You just said Donald was spot on. If its white murders killers and RAPIST it would be white thugs . Same difference if they were black . You guys sound like he is acting like it is a ethical decision . I think he is afraid some evil psychopath or psychopaths could target him for the way Chapo or some of the many minions or opponents are depicted . A very legitimate concern when you consider the pea brain mentality of these kind of thugs . When making a movie about a active organization that engages in mass murder and murder on a daily basis., not to mention countless other atrocities , one should consider the possibilities . Really Marc Walberg works with people that are responsible for the death of thousands of people ? Come on now get real .That's the difference in comparing them with Chapo . It wouldn't be fair to the world to do a story on Chapo and letting him tell it his way . Any other way could be a death sentence . There are a lot more people in this story than Chapo . Anything other than the truth would be junk fiction .

  21. He didn't want to get snitched on by chapo. smart man, everyone knows he snitches big time. He could have been charged for not reporting chapo to the authrities if they wanted too. Too much trouble imo
