When and where did production of Desperados take place?

Filming began in Mexico City in April 2019 and was confirmed by director LP on her Instagram.

It’s been a long wait for the arrival of Desperados, considering the rights to the film were acquired by Universal Pictures in 2009. Originally Isla Fisher had been attached to the project, and other crew members were scheduled to work on the project as well.

Ten long years later and finally a cast was announced, followed by the announcement that LP would be directing the feature. The feature is no longer attached to Universal since Netflix acquired the rights, with production switching to MXN Entertainment and Lost City banners, respectively.


What is the runtime of Desperados?

It has been confirmed that Desperados will have a runtime of 105 minutes.

Will Desperados be available to stream in 4K?

It most certainly will as it is a requirement that all new Originals are available to subscribers in 4K.

To watch Desperados in 4K you will need a premium subscription to Netflix, along with a 4K device, and an internet connection capable of maintaining 25Mbps.
