Apparently Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, head of the powerful Sinaloa Cartel, also thought his escape was worthy of Hollywood. After his July escape, El Chapo and his people had "made contact with actresses and producers, which is now a new line of investigation".
After the incident, the drug lord went underground and limited his communication until he moved to Los Mochis two months later. "The day that Guzman enters a Mexican prison is the day that he will begin to plan his next escape", Hope said.
Five of the drug kingpin's henchmen were killed in the gun battle, and six were captured. In a predawn raid, Mexican marines raided a house where the crime syndicate leader was believed to be staying.
The home where he was captured Friday had been under surveillance for a month, Attorney General Arely Gomez said.
Mission Accomplished, the President wrote.
The capture had senior Mexican officials at a foreign ministry event gleefully embracing and breaking into a spontaneous rendition of the national anthem after interior secretary Miguel Osorio Chong delivered the news. That process could take months, although U.S. Republican party presidential hopeful Marco Rubio was among those calling for Washington to immediately pursue extradition.
After coming under fire for failing to send Guzman to the United States before he escaped the last time, Mexico said in July it had approved an order to extradite him north of the border.
In 1993, police arrested him in Guatemala and extradited him to Mexico. "This is a success for the state", Pena Nieto said.
Billionaire cocaine kingpin Joaquin Guzman - whose nickname means "Shorty" - was brought down in his home state of Sinaloa during a predawn clash with Mexican marine special forces, officials said. He had been spied by helicopter, she said, but was accompanied by two women and a child, and so security forces decided not to engage. This would allow the president to "wash his hands" of Guzman, he said.
The source said Guzman was captured from the Hotel Doux, a motel on the outskirts of Los Mochis once popular with North Americans travelling south. Residents described gunfire and explosions from about 3:30 a.m. (0930 GMT) and said Marines stormed house after house and searched storm drains for the fugitive. They were fired on from inside the structure. The marine's injuries were not life threatening.
During the shootout, Guzman and an aide allegedly escaped through a manhole that led to the city's sewer system.
Wearing a vest and covered in filth, the 58-year-old managed to steal a vehicle but was caught outside the city before he could disappear again.
Michael Braun, a former chief of operations at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, said Mexico would be wise to send Guzman to the United States. An assault rifle had a 40-mm grenade launcher and at least one grenade. The U.S. has sought his extradition, though Mexico in the past has said he would serve sentences here first. It made the government look stupid at best and institutionally corrupt at worst - many people doubted El Chapo's escape could have happened without inside help.
Guzman shocked the world last summer when he stepped into the shower at his cell, in the most secure wing of the prison he was being kept in, in full view of a video camera and vanished into what guards later discovered was a small hole in the shower's floor.
Guzman has previously escaped from two maximum-security prisons, first in 2001, and again in 2015, when he escaped through a sophisticated, 1.5km tunnel that included lighting, air ducts and a motorcycle.
