Javier Bardem's Amazon Series Scrapped for This Reason

Javier Bardem‘s upcoming miniseries on Amazon is not moving forward.

The 51-year-old actor was set to star in Cortés y Moctezuma, a project co-produced by Amazon Studios and Amblin Television, but the companies have announced they have scrapped the show because of the ongoing health pandemic.

“Due to the production constraints created by the COVID-19 global pandemic, Amazon Studios and Amblin Partners are unable to move forward with production on our Cortés y Moctezuma series,” the two companies said in a statement via THR. “In the current climate, there is unfortunately no way to remount the production in the near future to achieve the scale and scope that was intended and that the series deserves.”

Javier was supposed to star in the Spanish-language drama alongside Tenoch Huerta and Yoshira Escarrega. Cortés y Moctezuma was written by Steve Zaillian, who would have also produced the series with Javier, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Diego Luna.

“We have nothing but admiration and respect for Javier, Tenoch, Yoshira, Gael, Diego, Steve Zaillian, and the entire cast and crew of the series and hope we can work together again in the future,” the statement continued.
