Can you believe it's been 14 years since Pasión first aired?! (14 years, 1 month, 6 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Pasión end?
When Pasión came to an end after 1 year in February 2008, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to María Lissabeta de Salamanca (Daniela Castro), Rícardo de Salamanca (Fernando Colunga) and Camila Darién (Susana González). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Pasión reunion disappoint people?
Pasión aired from 2007-2008 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 Colunga said he's not sure if Pasión would work today. “I don't want to see old Rícardo de Salamanca,” he told a journalist (Colunga turned 55 in March). “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 a Pasión movie?
In a recent interview, Fernando Colunga said he can't imagine a Pasión 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 Susana González has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Pasión movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Pasión film, Daniela Castro stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Pasión reboot?
Recasting Pasión 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 a Pasión reunion, a Pasión movie, or a Pasión reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
