El Chapo Busted Trying To Make His Own 'Narcos' Remake

Mexico's Attorney General says special agents got tipped off to El Chapo's whereabouts after the cartel leader tried making a documentary about his life.

The drug lord reportedly contacted producers to make a "Narcos" style biopic. Mexico's AG says it was El Chapo's hunger for more fame that tipped off authorities.

Chapo was returned Friday night to the prison he escaped from 7 months ago, located 1,300 miles from the place he was found. 

On the bright side ... El Chapo will have plenty of time to write a script.
