Was Chapo's overture to Hollywood fatal? | World War 4 Report: But despite the hyped security measures of encypted communication and supposed flight into the jungle (the word "encyrpted" appears in Penn's story no less than 10 times), Chapo's surrendur to the lure of media magnification and Hollywood hullabaloo may have been his undoing. National Public Radio reports that a film based on his story—Chapo: El Escape del Siglo, or Chapo: The Escape of the Century—is set to open in Mexico next week. And Mexico's Prosecutor General Arely G�mez now says that Chapo's communications with figures involved in the movie ultimately led to his capture. "He established communication with actors and producers, which formed a new line of investigation," G�mez said.

Indeed, as The Guardian points out, Penn says that in his quest to reach Chapo he first made contact with Kate del Castillo, star of the narco-themed Mexican soap series La Reina del Sur. Del Castillo made public statements against the Mexican government in 2012, saying: "Today I believe more in Chapo Guzm�n than in the governments that hide the truth, even if it’s painful."
