MEXICO CITY — Rolling Stone magazine is reporting that Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman met with Sean Penn in his hideout in Mexico months before his recapture by Mexican marines in his home state of Sinaloa.
“I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world. I have a fleet of submarines, airplanes, trucks and boats,” he said in the interview with Penn, according to Rolling Stone Magazine.
In the article published late Saturday in the magazine, and authored by Penn, the actor describes the complicated measures he took to meet the legendary drug lord. He discusses topics ranging from drug trafficking to Middle East politics with Guzman.
We’d left Los Angeles at 7 a.m. By 9 p.m. on the dash clock we arrive at a clearing where several SUVs are parked. A small crew of men hover. On a knoll above, I see a few weathered bungalows. I get out of the truck, search the faces of the crew for approval that I may walk to the trunk to secure my bag. Nods follow. I move. And, when I do…there he is. Right beside the truck. The world’s most famous fugitive: El Chapo.
The article follows reports that Guzman had reached out to Hollywood about filming a biopic of his life.
