An actor from Hollywood has been cast to play the role of Ferdinand Magellan in the upcoming movie '1521' directed by James Cameron

'Mctan' is an upcoming historical epic that tells the story of the Battle of Mactan fought in the pre-colonial era of the Philippines.

'1521' is a U.S.-Philippines film produced by Filipino-American filmmaker Francis B. Lara Ho of Inspire Studios, and follows the journey of Magellan, a Spanish explorer who led the first European expedition to Asia. 

His arrival on March 16, 1521, to the archipelago that we know today as the Philippines marked the beginning of the Spanish era.

It was Mary Krell-Oishi who penned the script for the movie '1521'. The principal photography for the film is expected to begin in Palawan this month.

Trejo is joined in the cast by Michael Copon. He will portray Datu Lapu-Lapu, a ruler of an island and leader of the warriors who defeated Magellan's attempt to colonize the Philippines. 

On April 27, 1521, the Portuguese explorer Magellan was killed in the Battle of Mactan because his forces were defeated and his forces defeated.

Filipino actress Bea Alonzo will be playing Mactan princess Diwata, who is involved in a forbidden romance with a Spanish soldier playing Enrique, Magellan's translator in the historical encounter between Magellan and Copon.
