Actor JW Cortes Transforms Himself Into Pedro Albizu Campos: Is a Film on the Way?

On Saturday, our dear friend George “Urban J铆baro” Torres posted some very unique and amazing photos to his Instagram, and as you might imagine, they quickly caught our attention. The sequenced photos are below, and they reveal actor J.W. Cortes transforming into Pedro Albizu Campos, the great Puerto Rican nationalist leader.

On set at @elmuseo for a shoot… this project led by @jwcortes is pretty exciting. #StayTuned #BoricuasOnline

When we reached out to Torres on Sunday morning via a Twitter direct message, he shared one more photo:

He also told us this:

[Saturday] we had a photo shoot to start the process which JW Cortes hopes will end in a full length movie about Don Pedro. The photo shoot was meant to recreate some of the most famous photos of Don Pedro. The first phase will be a working towards a pre-production fundraiser.

We cannot wait to hear more details.
