Oscar nominee Demián Bichir (A Better Life, The Bridge) has joined Chupa, Jonás Cuarón’s upcoming mythical creature film for Netflix. The ensemble cast also added newcomers Dominic Mariche, Adriel Manzano and Isabella Patron for lead roles. Chupa will portray a teenage boy (Mariche) who, while visiting his family in Mexico, discovers and befriends a young chupacabra hiding in his grandfather’s shed.
Mexican actor Demián Bichir is the guest on a new “Critical Eye” special, where he tells Juan Carlos Arciniegas how the perception of Latinos in the Hollywood industry has changed. And although he assures that there are still stereotypes when it comes to choosing characters, Bichir believes that it is the actors themselves who can break with this situation.

With director Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong now playing in North American theaters and streaming for free on HBO Max, I recently spoke with Demián Bichir about making the newest entry in the monster franchise. During the fun interview, he talked about who they’d be rooting for if he wasn’t in the movie, what it was like seeing the finished film and the monster fights, if his character in Godzilla vs. Kong had seen the Jurassic Park movies, and why he’s excited to make the Let the Right One In pilot at Showtime. In addition, over the past year, whenever we wrote about this movie, so many people wanted to know why Godzilla and Kong don’t kiss. So I asked him about it. Considering he had no idea I’d be asking this question, his answer was great.

Vampire movies have long been passe but the 2008 horror Let the Right One was something altogether new. The Swedish adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s book served as a heartfelt coming-of-age story, a buddy story of friendship, and a freakishly scary horror. It was so good that even Matt Reeves’ 2010 English remake couldn’t diminish it, and you know what? Some could say the American version was even better. There was even a stageplay and an attempted TNT series pilot. This story just resonates with people. And now it’s coming back to television, with an Oscar-nominated actor already on board.
A Better Life’s Demián Bichir has reportedly signed on to Let the Right One In, according to Variety. Hopefully he has better luck dealing with his supernatural companion than the protagonists of author John Ajvide Lindqvist’s original 2004 book; its 2008 Swedish film adaptation; its 2010 American version, Let Me In; that 2013 stage play; and TNT’s previously attempted Let the Right One In pilot, mostly because that last one never made it to air.
Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist's debut novel Let the Right One In is about to get new life once again as the vampire tale is on its way to television. Deadline reports that Academy Award nominee Demián Bichir (A Better Life, Godzilla vs Kong) has been tapped to star in the series which has officially been given a pilot order by Showtime. Away creator and Penny Dreadful writer Andrew Hinderaker will write the project and serve as showrunner while Dexter and Homeland director Seith Mann will step behind the camera for the first episode. The premium cable network describes the series as "an elevated genre drama, which is turning a naturalistic lens on human frailty, strength and compassion."
Showtime on Monday announced a pilot order for Let the Right One In, an “elevated genre series” inspired by the 2004 Swedish vampire novel (by John Ajvide Lindqvist) and subsequent 2008 film. Demián Bichir (The Bridge) is set to star. The series follows a father (played by Bichir) and his...
