Ochoa is onboard

Our beloved and recognizable Peruvian actor Juan Manuel Ochoa is on board also.

We met for a coffee (which actually turned into a Pisco Sour by his suggestion) and talked about life, his projects and late life and all and then moved on to the film project explanation.

I want him to play the antagonist which falls on the character Agustin Belaunde, known for being a traitor and deserter prior to the Battle of Arica (Batalla de Arica). Told him how his character was and what was expected of him and he took it as a challenge.

He is quite a character himself, very hyper and blunt, lots of energy and stamina.
He is gonna be quite a thing.

Things are moving along pretty well.
