Netflix Announces the Start of Production of ‘El Conde’, the New Movie by Pablo Larraín





Netflix Announces the Start of Production of ‘El Conde’, the New Movie by Pablo Larraín

Jaime Vadell, Gloria Münchmeyer, Alfredo Castro and Paula Luchsinger will star in El Conde, a dark comedy with a historical angle, which will be produced by Fabula.
Santiago, June 24th 2022 – Netflix today announced the start of production of El Conde, a Chilean movie directed by Pablo Larraín, who also shares screenplay credits with regular partner Guillermo Calderón, with whom he has already worked on The Club and Neruda, and which will be produced by Juan de Dios Larraín.

The story revolves around Augusto Pinochet who is not dead but an aged vampire who, after 250 years in this world, has decided to die once and for all, due to ailments brought about by his dishonor and family conflicts.

Playing the leads, Jaime Vadell (Tres tristes tigres, No) and Gloria Münchmeyer (La luna en el espejo, 42 días en la oscuridad) will play the central couple in this historical black comedy, in addition to actors Alfredo Castro (Tony Manero, Tengo Miedo Torero) and Paula Luchsinger (Ema, La Jauría).

Speaking about this new project, Pablo Larraín stated “We are very happy because Netflix is a place where directors whom I greatly admire have made really valuable movies. Using dark comedy we want to observe, understand and analyze the events that have occurred in Chile and the world in the last 50 years. We have total confidence that we’ll do a good job and it will undoubtedly be an adventure: a demanding shoot, but very inspiring and meaningful.”

Francisco Ramos, Netflix’s Vice President of Content for Latin America said: “Finally we can work with Pablo Larraín as director. Participating in his next movie is truly an honor for us and will undoubtedly bring huge satisfaction to our Members in Chile and around the world. Pablo is one of the most interesting and significant voices in Latin American cinema in the last 20 years; his view on Chile and Latin America are essential to understanding our continent. I have no doubt that El Conde will continue on the path Pablo has blazed with No and Neruda. Continuing to put our faith in Fabula is vital to our growth process in a country as rich and diverse as Chile.”

El Conde will be available exclusively on Netflix in 2023.



Heart-Stopping Trailer for ‘Ranveer vs Wild with Bear Grylls’ Hints at the Choices You’ll Make





Heart-Stopping Trailer for ‘Ranveer vs Wild with Bear Grylls’ Hints at the Choices You’ll Make for Bollywood Superstar Ranveer Singh

Maggots or boar testicles — which will you have superstar Ranveer Singh eat?

The newly dropped trailer for Ranveer vs Wild with Bear Grylls shows the actor facing some tough choices. Should he rappel down a craggy cliff or traverse a mountain line across a nail-biting drop to descend from high ground? What should he do when he meets bears — play dead or dance for them?

Except that Ranveer’s not the one making the decisions in India’s first interactive reality special — you are.


At a packed event in Mumbai today to launch the trailer with fans and media, the indefatigable powerhouse reminded his fans that his fate is literally in their hands, button dabao aur Ranveer ko bachao! Zip-lining from the sky in true blue Ranveer style, the superstar made his way to the main stage to unveil the trailer and deliver a very special message. “Dil Darega Nahi, Karega,” said Ranveer as he urged his fans to embrace their fears and pursue their ultimate passion.

Trading the comforts and fashion of a cosmopolitan city to plunge headlong into the unforgiving forests of Serbia, Ranveer is risking his life all for one thing — a rare flower for the love of his life. From rappelling rocky terrains to facing ravenous wolves, he keeps on forging ahead with adventurer Bear Grylls.

Long a fan of the man he calls “king of the wild”, Ranveer is over the moon to team up with Bear for this adventure of a lifetime.

“This is a fresh offering in the adventure reality genre.” Ranveer said. “Embarking on this great, big challenge was a thrill for me and we feel that the audience will also experience the same adrenaline rush! It’s packed with action, humor, emotion, suspense — just about all the ingredients of a wholesome watch! And the best part is that the audience gets to engage in a truly interactive format, which in many ways is the USP of the show. I am excited to be working with Netflix to bring to you a project that we believe is both novel and thoroughly entertaining!”

Out in the jungle, Ranveer does his own stunts for the first time ever, while picking up new survival skills from Bear the intrepid explorer, who at one point helpfully informs Ranveer he’s smeared wolf scat on his forehead.

“I am excited to be working with Ranveer. He is a supremely talented actor and a fireball of energy,” says Bear. “The best part about him is his insatiable thirst for growth and adventure. Together with Netflix, Ranveer and I are thrilled to bring the ultimate adventure to audiences across the world.”

Produced by Banijay Asia and The Natural Studios, the special will air on July 8, setting a new benchmark in engaging with audiences.

“At Netflix, we are constantly pushing our boundaries of storytelling to create truly immersive experiences for our members,” says Monika Shergill, VP-Content, Netflix India. “Ranveer vs Wild with Bear Grylls puts interactivity at the heart of telling this story with viewers in the driver’s seat and participating in his thrilling adventure from start to finish.”

By placing Ranveer in an environment that is totally out of his comfort zone, viewers will get to see and connect with another side of the city boy. After all, love ke liye kuch bhi karega!

“We have always been committed to creating diverse and varied content,” says Deepak Dhar, Founder & CEO, Banijay Asia “Ranveer Vs Wild with Bear Grylls has given us the opportunity to bring to Indian audiences something that has never been done before. We are delighted to take forward our association with Netflix India and hope to bring more varied content to the country.”

Get ready to accompany India’s ultimate superstar and all-round badass only on Netflix in an unfiltered, raw and real adventure reality series.

Ranveer aur Bear aa rahe hain, aur aap karenge decide unka next move! Ranveer VS Wild with Bear Grylls only on Netflix on July 8.
