The story goes like this. Cortes was a 16th century explorer who rebelled against Spanish authorities to carry an expedition to what has now become Mexico that caused the decline of the Aztec Empire.

"It is a privilege to tell this epic story - one that is full of drama and conflict within this huge, historical spectacle where two distant civilizations clash at the height of their reign," quoted Bardem.

"The best and worst of human nature came to life in all its light and darkness. As an actor, there is no better challenge than to serve such a unique project that I have been passionate about for years, and I am thrilled to be working with this dream team of Steven Spielberg, Steven Zaillian and Amazon."
