About Netflix’s Chupa:

Netflix has acquired the rights to Jonas Cuaron’s upcoming feature film called Chupa and will star Oscar-nominee Demian Bichir. Chupa will be a family film set in Mexico and will center around the story of a teenage boy who finds a Chupacabra hiding in his grandfather’s shed and tries to save it and ends up goinging on an adventure with cousins.

Cuaron co-wrote the Oscar-winning movie Gravity with his father Alfonso Cuaron. The most recent screenplay for Chupa was written by Cuaron and Tim Sexton, who previously wrote Children of Men and Live From Baghdad. The original script was written by Marcus Rinehart, Sean Kennedy Moore and Joe Barnathan.

Netflix’s Chupa is part of 26th Street Pictures’ first-look deal at Netflix. 26th Street Pictures’ Chris Columbus, Michael Barnathan, and Mark Radcliffe are producing the movie and Mac Brown and Brendan Bellomo are executive producing the project.

What is the plot of Chupa?

Deadline reports Netflix’s Chupa follows a teenage Alex who visits his family in Mexico. While in Mexico, he discovers a young Chupacabra hiding in his grandfather’s shed. To save the creature, Alex and his cousins go on an adventure of a lifetime.

Cast of Chupa:

It was announced by Netflix in June 2021 Demian Bichir (A Better Life, The Hateful Eight), Dominic Mariche (See, The Good Doctor), Adriel Manzano and Isabella Patron would lead the cast of Chupa. They will be playing the characters ChavaAlexMemo and Luna.

Director Jonas Cuarón commented on the casting:

“Demián, Dominic, Adriel and Isabella all bring a genuineness to the characters they play. Growing up in both Mexico and the US, I’m fortunate to have my own life experiences to inspire the stories that I tell. It’s even more special to have found a cast that is able to lend an additional layer of authenticity to Chupa.”

Producer Chris Columbus also added:

“A story is only as good as the actors who can make it come to life. Demián is an acclaimed actor and after an extensive search, we’re thrilled with the true talent we’ve found in Adriel, Isabela and Dominic, all of whom lend heart and authenticity to their roles. We can’t wait for people around the world to meet them and see just how special they make this film.”
