Los Angeles: Hollywood veteran Danny Trejo is all set to star in the upcoming historical film “1521”.According to entertainment website Variety, Trejo will be seen in the role of Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan in the film.

A joint production between the Americas and the Philippines, “1521” follows the voyage of Magellan, who led the Spanish expedition and was one of the first Europeans to visit Asia. He arrived in the archipelago known today as the Philippines on March 16, 1521. The film will also star actor Michael Copon as Datu Lapu-Lapu, an island ruler and leader of the warriors who colonized Magellan’s attempt at the Philippine archipelago. Magellan’s army was defeated at the Battle of Mactan on April 27, 1521, and the Portuguese explorer was killed.
Marie Krell-Oshi has written the script for the film, which will begin principal photography later this month in Palawan, Philippines. Trejo is known for his roles in films such as “Desperado”, “Heat”, “Con Air”, the “From Dusk to Dawn” series and “Machete”.
