'Narcos' picked up for two more seasons at Netflix

6 September 2016 10:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While I (regrettably) know how Season 2 of Narcos ends, I don’t know exactly how we get there. I’m only through the second episode, as I’m trying to savor every moment. Plus, I’m a slow reader. Anyway, this is just a long build up to some exciting news: Narcos has been renewed. Netflix announced today that the drug-fueled drama about the Colombian cocaine cartels of the 1980s and 1990s will be back for two more seasons. It’ll be interesting to see how they do this considering the way Season 2 ends, but I’m confident that returning EPs José Padilha and Eric Newman will figure out a way. The streaming service released a promo video for the new season, scheduled for a 2017 release, with the tag line “The Blow Must Go On.” This is posted below. On a related note, if you’re interested in learning more »

Jennifer Lopez to Star as Real-Life Drug Lord Griselda Blanco

10 August 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jennifer Lopez is going from Shades of Blue to lines of white powder. E! News confirms that the actress is set to star as notorious drug lord Griselda Blanco in a TV movie she is developing for HBO. Blanco, known as "The Cocaine Godmother," came to rise in the 1970s and 1980s and reportedly ordered up to 200 murders during her infamous reign. After DEA agents arrested at her home in California in 1985, she was sentenced to ten years in prison before being deported to Colombia in 2004. Eight years later, Blanco was killed after being shot twice in the head in a drive-by shooing in Medellin. Blanco is a central figure in the 2006 documentary Cocaine Cowboys. With Lopez as Blanco in mind, »

[Review] The Infiltrator

13 July 2016 10:07 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Fascination endures with the cocaine trade of the 1980s, as evidenced by everything from Netflix’s Narcos to the two separate upcoming biopics around minor characters in this week’s The Infiltrator. (One for Pablo Escobar, to be played by John Leguizamo… who is also in this film. And one for Barry Seal, to be played by Tom Cruise… who is also in this film. Weird, right? No, that last part is a lie. Sorry.) But this movie, based on the memoir of the same name by Bob Mazur, differentiates itself by focusing less on the bang-bang cartel action in the streets and more on the backroom money laundering in the sheets. That’s not an angle we usually see with crime films… for good reason, as it turns out, since The Infiltrator is deathly boring.

It’s the 1980s, and bankers’ white collars the world over are starched with »
