If you’ve been around long enough, there is a decent chance you’ve heard of the legendary creature known as the chupacabra. The first reported sightings of this creature were documented in 1995 in Puerto Rico.
The name comes from the animal’s reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, including goats.
Physical descriptions of the creature vary. It is purportedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail.
Certainly sounds interesting enough for its own movie, right?
Jonas Cuaron, son of Alfonso Cuaron, will direct this untitled flick for Netflix with Chris Columbus‘ 26th Street Pictures producing.
The film follows a teenager, who while visiting his family in Mexico, gains an unlikely companion when he discovers a young chupacabra hiding in his grandpa’s shed. In order to save the mythical creature, Alex and his cousins must embark on the adventure of a lifetime.
Sign me up. I’m all for this. Sounds like a modern day E.T. or something.
No word on when this film might be released, but as always, we’ll keep you posted.
