Coco Martin says he is excited yet nervous to be part of ‘Beauty and the Bestie.’
Coco Martin admitted that he is quite anxious now that he is about to start filming his upcoming movie with Vice Ganda and director Wenn Deramas for the Metro Manila Film Festival this year. “Excited pero siyempre kinakabahaan ako kasi una ako ‘yung bago sa kanilang dalawa di ba? Dati may nagawa na silang pelikula at siyempre iba ‘yung genre ko, hindi ko alam ‘yung sitwasyon namin sa pagta-taping namin,” he said during an interview at the story conference of Beauty and the Bestie
The actor shared that besides comedy, the film will be packed with action scenes. “Actually mataas ‘yung expectation dito ni Vice kasi eh matagal na niya gusto gumawa, hind naman ng action movie, hindi naman sobra, which is comedy and action. Talagang nire-require ni Vice na, ‘Ito ah gusto ko action ha ‘yung napapanood natin na hindi pucho-puchong action lang. Gusto ko talaga dito ‘yung nga car chase, tumatalon sa helicopter.’”
When asked why it took a while before he teamed-up with his best friend Vice Ganda for a film, Coco shared, “Actually dati na kaming nakakagawa ni Vice ng movie, hiningi ko ‘yung tulong niya sa mga indie movie so ngayon sa mainstream ngayon lang kami napagbigyan na magkasama. Actually matagal na namin ‘tong pinag-isipan eh. May concept sana ako eh mas maganda ‘tong konsepto na nabuo ng Star Cinema, siguro later so sana makagawa.”
On his leading lady for the film, Coco relayed, “Meron actually maganda ‘yung casting namin. Si Ellen Adarna [‘yung leading lady].” Vice, who was present during the interview quipped that he requested Ellen Adarna to be Coco’s leading lady because he knew the actor would like to work with the sexy actress. “Ako talaga nag-request. Gusto ko si Ellen Adarna ‘yung ipa-partner nila kay Coco kasi feeling ko ire-request niya eh,” Vice said.
