Kate del Castillo says she just “wants closure” and is hoping to get it from the release of her new three-part docuseries The Day I Met El Chapo, now on Netflix.
The documentary tells del Castillo’s version of events surrounding a 2015 meeting with Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, a Mexican drug lord who at the time was hiding from authorities. He’s since been captured and extradited to the U.S. and is awaiting trial.
When del Castillo met with Guzman, she said it was with the intent to make a film about his life. She brought along two film producers and actor Sean Penn, who went on to write an article for Rolling Stone magazine about the encounter.

(Note: Penn says it’s common to ask to see a cut of a project before agreeing to participate. After viewing it, Penn asked for a change which did not happen.) (Note: Penn says del Castillo is adding “new salacious allegations to her interview repertoire for the sole purpose of attracting attention for her documentary and for herself.”)

Well, legally I can go back because the investigation is over but they opened a new investigation and then they closed it and opened a new one. (There is an investigation into whether del Castillo received money from Guzman to finance the movie she wanted to make. She denies this.) My lawyers are advising me not to go yet.
