Story Of One Of Mexico's Deadliest Sicarios Is Being Made Into A Film

Story Of One Of Mexico's Deadliest Sicarios Is Being Made Into A Film

The story of one of Mexico's deadliest sicario's life story is being made into a film.

Exile Content has teamed with Pulp Fiction producer Lawrence Bender to acquire the rights to the story, according to Deadline.

The tale was made public by Azam Ahmed and Paulina Villegas in a New York Times article published in December 2019, entitled 'He Was One of Mexico's Deadliest Assassins. Then He Turned on His Cartel.'.

The article reveals in gruesome detail how the anonymous assassin became one of the most lethal hitmen in the country, before eventually being taken into custody via a makeshift witness protection programme.

The sicario was allowed to walk free in exchange for information which took down the cartel from the inside.

The unnamed sicario said he set out 'to be a psychopath, to kill without mercy and be the most feared sicario in the world', claiming his first kill when he was just 17 by slitting the throat of an innocent man.

By 2017, at only 22 years old, he had taken part in more than 100 murders.

Indeed, he went on to kill other innocents - not just cartel members. One in particular from his five-year killing career stuck with him.

Sent to kill a group of kidnappers, he tied them all up and realised one was a completely unaffiliated student. He called his boss and asked if he could let him go, but the boss insisted any living witness was a weakness.

The young student begged for his life as the hitman apologised, before slitting his throat.

"I see his face, that kid begging me for his life. I will never forget his eyes. He was the only one who ever looked at me that way."

This is not the first story by Ahmed that has been acquired by a production company.

He is also the man behind the story of a mum who went on a Taken-style mission to avenge her daughter's death.

Miriam Rodriguez went searching for answers after her 20-year-old daughter, Karen Alejandra Salinas Rodríguez, disappeared.

Karen's captors sent Miriam ransom demands in exchange for her to be released, however the young woman was never returned safely. Her body was eventually discovered on an abandoned ranch in 2014.

After a great deal of fearless efforts, Miriam rounded up nearly every person involved in her daughter's death and handed them over to authorities. In total, she was able to get 10 members of the Los Zetas cartel arrested.

Sadly though, her mission came at a cost. On Mother's Day in 2017 as she was chasing down one of her last targets, she was shot 12 times in front of her home and was killed.

The story of Ahmed's article, entitled 'She Stalked Her Daughter's Killers Across Mexico, One by One', has been acquired by Blumhouse.
