The actor will portray Captain Valeriano Abanador, who led the sneak attack of dozens of Balangiga villagers against the US soldiers in Balangiga, Eastern Samar on September 28, 1901.

During a press conference for Balangiga 1901, Ejay said he's grateful to be part of a film that creates awareness about our history.  

"Sobrang excited ako, sobrang nakaka-proud kasi gagawin mo 'yung history. Talagang makikita dito ang mga bayani natin 'yung nangyari sa Balangiga 1901. Ito ang chance na maipakita namin 'yung kuwento, 'yung mga nangyari sa lahat ng mga tao, especially sa mga kababayan natin sa Eastern Samar. So 'yun 'yung nakaka-excite," he said.

The actor said it's an honor for him to play the role of the Balangiga hero.
"Ako bilang artista ay proud kasi bibihira na magkaroon ng ganitong opportunity na makagawa ng ganito. Sabi ko nga 'yung role ni Captain Abanador ay very hero. Ang sarap sa pakinggan na gampanan ang isang bayani," he said. 

Ejay is scheduled to shoot the movie in Tarlac for two weeks. According to him, he's excited to return to work after more than seven months of being stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Kailangan kong magtrabaho, nagpapakatotoo naman tayo, hindi lang kailangan ko in terms of financially, ang pinakaimportante doon, kailangang magtrabaho, tapos na-miss mo iyong acting. Iyong gift na ibinigay sa ‘yo, iyong talent, kailangan mo namang ilabas, ipakita. Iyong matagal nang hindi nagamit," he added.

On what fans can expect from the film, Ejay said: "Ang ipapakita namin dito ay tamang kuwento. ... Natutuwa ako kasi napakaganda ng kuwento at dapat mapanood ng lahat, lalo na tayong mga Pilipino. Marami ang hindi nakakaalam pero marami pa lang kuwento ng Balangiga 1901."

Balangiga 1901 is directed by Danny G. Marquez. It is produced by Jarrimine Fortuna Film Production Corp.
