Well, this sounds all kinds of fun. Jonás Cuarón is set to tackle a Chupacabra movie over at Netflix.
Via Deadline, the Gravity co-writer and Desierto director will seemingly be a family-friendly affair, with the to-be-titled picture based around a teenager who befriends a Chupacabra and embarks on a life-changing adventure.
For those unaware, the Chupacabra is a creature pulled from folklore. Said to resemble a small bear that has a spiked spine, this mythical beast has a penchant for draining the blood from livestock.
Chris Columbus and his 26th Street Pictures production banner are producing this movie for Netflix as part of the first-look deal the company signed with the streaming service back in 2018. That agreement coming after Netflix was hugely impressed (and rightly so!) with the Kurt Russell-fronted The Christmas Chronicles.
This Chupacabra project comes after Jonás Cuarón’s Zorro reboot starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Kiersey Clemons appears to have stalled a tad.
