The six-month manhunt for notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman came to an end in part because of his desire to reach out to actor Sean Penn, USA Today reports. 

Guzman was arrested in Los Mochis, Mexico, and soon could be extradited to the U.S.

Guzman reached out to actors and producers for a biographical movie about his life, which was the first break in the manhunt.

Penn flew to Mexico with actress Kate del Castillo to meet with Guzman, who had escaped from prison.

“El Chapo sticks to an illicit game (drugs), proudly volunteering, ‘I supply more heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana than anybody else in the world. I have a fleet of submarines, airplanes, trucks and boats,’” Penn wrote.

Mexican marines raided a home in search of Guzman on Friday, killing six suspects and arresting six more.

Guzman fled but was captured a short time later.
