SENATOR Ramon "Bong" Revilla confirmed that he will be working with the country's leading comedian Vic Sotto for a Metro Manila Film Festival movie this December.
He said the title of the project and the selection of their leading ladies are still on the works but they will "officially work together this year."
"Pinaguusapan pa lang namin yung title kung Agimat Ni Enteng or Enteng Agimat, malalaman nyo din yun sa tamang panahon," Bong said in an interview.
The duo is always on neck-to-neck when it comes to movie standing during MMFF seasons.
Last December, Bong's "Ang Panday" ranked number one in box-office with a total gross of P96.6 million while Vic's "Ang Darling Kong Aswang" hit a box-office gross of P88.3 million.
Prior to last year, Vic also starred in the following MMFF movies: "Iskul Bukol: 20 Years After" (2008), "Enteng Kabisote 4: Okay Ka, Fairy Ko: The Beginning of the Lengend" (2007), "Enteng Kabisote 3" (2006), "Enteng Kabisote Po 4" (2005).
Bong on the other hand top-billed "Resiklo" in 2007 and "Exodus" in 2005.
The upcoming project will be produced by M-Zet, GMA Films, Octo Arts Films, Imus and APT Productions.
This year's initial list of movies for the 36th MMFF are "Ang Tanging Ina Mo Rin (Last na To!)" starring Aiai Delas Alas; "Rosario" by Cinema Buhay; "Father Jejemon" by RVQ Productions; "Dalaw" by Cine Media; "RPG" by ABS-CBN Film Productions and Ambient Media; and "Shake, Rattle and Roll XII" by Regal Entertainment.
