Coco Martin and Angel Locsin to star in SAF 44 story for ‘MMK’

Coco’s latest project comes on the heels of his successful debut as a rom-com actor in You’re My Boss together with Toni Gonzaga.

Coco is set to give life to the story of Police Inspector Gary Erana, one of the Fallen 44. Angel will be playing the role of Coco’s fiancee.

This project comes almost four months after the grisly Mamasapano clash between the Special Action Forces members and the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters in Maguindanao.

While a lot of stories have been done to honor the Fallen 44, the most controversial so far is the movie set to be made by former Laguna Governor ER Ejercito. The project’s announcement last February was met with mixed reactions as some noted how “insensitive” the notion was given that, at that time, the investigation about the clash was still ongoing.
