Disney is continuing to expand its Star Wars galaxy. Disney is developing a series with Diego Luna, star of 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Netflix is hitting the reset button with Narcos, relaunching the acclaimed thriller as a new original series that shifts the focus from Colombia to the Mexican drug war. The fourth season comes with a brand new title, Narcos: Mexico, and brand new leads in Michael Peña and Diego Luna. Now the streaming giant is offering a first look at Peña and Luna in character as a clashing DEA agent and Mexican cartel lord, respectively. Peña and Luna take over from former Narcos stars Pedro Pascal, Boyd Holbrook, and Wagner Moura, as the series travels from the streets of Colombia to the borders of Mexico.

MEXICO CITY – Actor Diego Luna was living the Hollywood dream. He was starring in a high-profile movie ("Rogue One: A Star Wars Story"), owned a house by the beach and was a partner in a production company. But there was something missing from his life: Mexico. So he did the thing you're not supposed to do when you've been given a golden ticket most people will only dream about. He left. Luna, 38, who first gained international acclaim for his role as a sex-crazed teen in the 2001 Mexican road trip movie "Y Tu Mama Tambien," was watching developments back in his native country with a sense of longing but also unease.

And he was infuriated by the politics — the brazen corruption, mass disappearances and seemingly unending drug war violence. Modern Mexico was rife with contradictions, and Luna … [Read more...] about Diego Luna was a Hollywood golden boy. So why did he go back to Mexico?
