Can you believe it's been 11 years since Acorralada first aired?! (11 years, 6 months, 25 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Acorralada end?
When Acorralada came to an end after 1 year in July 2009, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Diana Garcés Soriano (Alejandra Lazcano), Maximiliano Irázabal (David Zepeda) and Marfil Mondragon de Irázabal (Maritza Rodríguez). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would an Acorralada reunion disappoint people?
Acorralada aired from 2008-2009 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Zepeda said he's not sure if Acorralada would work today. “I don't want to see old Maximiliano Irázabal,” he told a journalist (Zepeda turned 45 in September). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for an Acorralada movie?
In a recent interview, David Zepeda said he can't imagine an Acorralada reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Elizabeth Gutiérrez (who played Paola Irázabal) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did an Acorralada movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an Acorralada film, William Levy stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about an Acorralada reboot?
Recasting Acorralada for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of an Acorralada reunion, an Acorralada movie, or an Acorralada reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
