A well-respected location scout, Carlos Munoz Portal, has been found dead in Mexico on Monday while scouting locations for “Narcos” season 4. Portal is reported to have been on his own in an area of Mexico know for gang violence and was found in his car with several bullet holes. No other facts are known.
It brings into question the future locations for filming “Narcos”, whether the Mexican-themed series 4 will be filmed in Mexico or elsewhere.
Portal was the location manager for a number of big movies including “Spectre”, “Elysium” and “Fast and Furious”.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
