Can you believe it's been 18 years since Rubí first aired?! (18 years, 6 months, 18 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Rubí end?
When Rubí came to an end after 1 year in October 2004, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Rubí Pérez (Bárbara Mori), Alejandro Cárdenas Ruíz (Eduardo Santamarina) and Maribel de la Fuente (Jacqueline Bracamontes). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Rubí reunion disappoint people?
Rubí aired from 2004-2004 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 Santamarina said he's not sure if Rubí would work today. “I don't want to see old Alejandro Cárdenas Ruíz,” he told a journalist (Santamarina turned 54 in June). “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 Rubí movie?
In a recent interview, Bárbara Mori said she can't imagine a Rubí 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 Sebastián Rulli (who played Héctor Ferrer Garza) 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 Rubí movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Rubí film, Marlene Favela stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Rubí reboot?
Recasting Rubí 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 Rubí reunion, a Rubí movie, or a Rubí reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
