Speaking before reporters during a press conference on Monday, Montano said he already talked to someone to try to get Curtis.

“Ang napupusuan namin siyempre ang mga asawa pa rin namin (laughs). Pero kanina, kausap ko si Vincent (del Rosario of Viva). Kinukuha ko na po si Anne Curtis. Kasi katatapos pa lang ng second draft natin. Sinusuyod ko pong mabuti ;yung script at talagang finifilter kong mabuti kasi bilin ni Mayor na totoo lang ang ilalagay natin diyan,” he said.

Lim said he has no preference as to who will play Montano’s partner in the movie.

“Sabi ko kay Cesar, bahala kang pumili. Kung gusto mo si Sunshine kunin mo. 'Yun pala si Anne Curtis. Tanggap ko iyon. Ang akin lang masasabi, ako bilib kay Cesar,” the mayor said.

According to Lim, he is honored that Montano agreed to do a movie about his life.

“Siya ho ang napili ko dahil hindi lang sa magaling siyang artista, kundi isa siya sa hinahangaan at pinagtitiwalaan ng mga mamamayan sa larangan ng pelikula,” Lim said.

Asked if they are planning to include in the story the friendship of Lim and the late Comedy King Dolphy, Montano said: “Sa ngayon sa script wala siya pero open naman tayo and we can always put an addition para mas ma-embellish ang buhay niya, para ma-humanize ng husto kung paano nagkaroon ng Mayor Lim sa Maynila.”
