MEXICO CITY (AP) — Rolling Stone magazine is reporting that Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman met with actor Sean Penn in his hideout in Mexico months before his recapture by Mexican marines in his home state of Sinaloa.

In an 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.

The article follows reports that Guzman had reached out to Hollywood about filming a biopic of his life.

A Mexican federal official says that the quickest recaptured drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman would be extradited to the United States is six months.
