The filmmakers received an immeasurable boost by enlisting veteran casting director Felipe Aljure who had worked with the film's casting director Susie Figgis on 'The Mission' (1986). Aljure was able to cast 84 out of the film's 96 actors locally in Colombia. Aljure's production experience and familiarity with the locale also gave the filmmakers the confidence to make him second unit director of the film. "Felipe is probably one of the most well connected people in film in Colombia,'' said executive producer Scott LaStaiti. "He did a fantastic job with casting and directed our B units. He went over and above in so many circumstances, getting us help where we needed it via his political connections and filmmaking resources. He was a real life saver.''
