Vice Ganda gives a glimpse of what madlang people could expect in his film for the Metro Manila Film Festival 2018.
Vice Ganda will be joining Metro Manila Film Festival 2018 with Fantastica, a movie with fairytale feels.
Co-starring Richard Gutierrez, Dingdong Dantes, Bela Padilla, Jacklyn Jose, trending love teams like MayWard (Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber), DonKiss (Donny Pangilinan and Kisses Delavin), and LoiNie (Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte), the movie will start shooting on July 17 and will be directed by Barry Gonzales.
People can expect colorful and extravagant costumes in the film as well. “Kino-consider din namin ‘yun e, kasi isa sa mga nagugustuhan ng mga bata sa mga pelikula ko, yung makukulay kong costume, yung itsura ko, yung bago kong buhok.”
Vice’s friends Anne Curtis and Coco Martin will also be joining MMFF with their respective entries. He expressed that rather than feeling pressured, he’s excited and claiming that their MMFF films will each draw its own success. “Ang saya kasi magkakaibigan kami na pumasok sa mga entries. Nandun si Coco, nandun si Anne Curtis, masaya. Parang ang saya ng float (parade), magkakawayan kaming lahat,” he told the press.
Vice revealed that casting Dindong and Richard happened after he assured management that the movie can reach 900 million pesos in profit. “Noong hiniling ko sa Star (Cinema), ang Dingdong at Chard sabi nila, ‘Anak ang mahal.’ Sabi ko, ‘Ibigay niyo na sa akin, kasi mag na-900 million naman ito.’ Sabi ni Inang (Star Cinema’s Olivia Lamasan), ‘Sure ka ba diyan?’ Sabi ko, ‘Sure ako, Inang. Magna-900 million ito,’ Oh, in-approve,” he said while laughing.
