Sinabi ni Coco Martin na hindi raw siya ang magdi-direk ng 2018 Metro Manila Film Fest entry with Vic Sotto.
Binanggit ito ni Coco sa kanyang latest na endorsement na nag-presscon sa Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Quezon City.
Incidentally, their MMFF 2018 entry which is titled Popoy En Jack: The Puliscredibles will be produced by MZet, APT Entertainment and CCM Films. “Pangarap ko na makatrabaho si Bossing (Vic),” he averred. “Akala ko nga hindi niya tanggapin ang inaalok ko,” he said in obvious reference to the project they would be doing for the MMFF 2018.
Sa isyung siya raw ang magdi-direk ng kanilang festival entry, sinabi ni Coco na hindi raw muna ngayon dahil busy siya sa Ang Pro- binsyano.
For a much welcome change, Mike Tuviera would be directing it but he would be on the creative side.
Asked if Maine Mendoza would be his leading lady in the project they would soon be shooting, he is noncommittal.
But he said that Maine is one of the actors he would like to work with. “Feeling ko pareho kaming masa,” he intimated. “Kasi nanonood rin ako ng mga ginagawa nila.”
Is he also watching Eat Bulaga?
“Oo, napapanood ko rin,” comes his immediate response. “Kaya sabi ko dating-dati pa, sana makatrabaho ko siya.”
Would he want Maine to be his leading lady?
“Sana lang mapagbigyan.”
Was he able to talk to Maine and her camp already?
“Hindi pa, e. Gusto ko malinis na malinis na ang script kapag pinasa sa kanila para…alam mo na. Baka hindi nila magustuhan, nakakahiya,” he said a little bashfully.
On teaming up anew with Vice Gandan, it would be impossible this time since both of them have separate projects to do.
But given the chance, he’d like to work with Vice again.
Are they in good terms aready?
“Okay na,” he said in earnest. “Sinabi ko naman, e.
“Sinabi ko naman last, last year na nagkaroon ng tampuhan.
“Normal naman sa magkaibigan pero sabi ko nga, nung nagkita kami sa (MMFF) parade, wala na.
“Nagkayapan kami. (Sabi namin), ‘Para tayong t*nga.’
“Samantalang, tayo yung magkakampi. Tapos biglang nagkaroon ng tampuhan. After that, wala na. Okay na.”
