Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral

'Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral', the sequel to 2015's hit film 'Heneral Luna', has started its pre-production.

The announcement was made through the film's official Facebook page, with Jerrold Tarog confirmed to helm again as the director and screenwriter (with Rody Vera). Fernando Ortigas and E.A. Rocha will serve as the film's producers.



The film will be focusing on expanding the character of General Gregorio "Goyo" Del Pilar from 'Heneral Luna'. It is also seeking to be the second part of a planned trilogy of films headlined by historical Filipino figures that includes Luna, Del Pilar and former President Manuel L. Quezon.

Paulo Avelino is set to reprise his role as Goyo, with Mon Confiado, Epy Quizon, Arron Villaflor, and Alvin Anson returning to their respective roles from the first film. In addition, Carlo Aquino will join the cast in an unspecified role.

Erik Matti announced that he is releasing the International Director's Cut of his spiritual thriller 'Seklusyon' this January 14 at select cinemas.

The director shared the news on his Facebook page, and confirmed a more mature R-16 rating with this longer cut, which was shown at the Macao International Film Festival, a step-up from the R-13 rating given by the MTRCB from its initial run at the Metro Manila Film Festival 2016.


In an interview with PEP.ph, Matti promises a stronger film with this International Director's Cut, which includes a daring frontal nudity scene involving its star Phoebe Walker.

"The international cut is a lot more...a lot stronger," Matti said.

gus fring better call saul

'Breaking Bad' alum Giancarlo Esposito might be gearing up to return as meth dealer/ fast-food owner Gus Fring in its prequel show 'Better Call Saul' as a new promo from the show is teasing his much-awaited comeback to the role.

 


Fans seems to confirm Fring's appearance on the show through various easter eggs (the initials of all Season 2 episode titles reads "F.R.I.N.G.S.B.A.C.K" combined), but Esposito rejects the idea in an interview last August.

“I’ve been very very busy. And they have had interest and hopefully we’re going to figure something out possibly.  I feel like I’m done with it," Esposito said. Gus is so iconic, I’m finished. I’m done.  But, you know I love that family of film makers. I love Bob Odenkirk. I love the show, so let’s see what happens.”

'Better Call Saul' returns this Spring 2017 on AMC!

joseph fiennes michael jackson

Sky Arts has released the first trailer for their upcoming comedy series 'Urban Myths', including the debut look on Joseph Fiennes as the iconic pop singer Michael Jackson.



'Urban Myths' will be an anthology-type series composed of made-for-TV films that chronicles popular urban legend stories of famous personalities such as Cary Grant, Adolf Hitler, Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson.

Fiennes, who was announced to be the actor tapped as Jackson last year, brought a lot of controversy from mostly Jackson's fans because of his casting deeming unfit for the role. 

"The decision with the casting and the producers — I wrangled with it, I was confused and shocked at what might come my way," Fiennes said during an interview with THR. "I knew the sensitivity, especially to Michael's fans and to Michael's family. It doesn't negate who he was."

'Urban Myths' premieres on Sky Arts this January 19!
