The battle between good and evil is coming to town again! Vhong Navarro will reprise his role as “Gagamboy” on its sequel.Gagamboy 2: Ang Pagbabalik is an upcoming science fiction movie topbilled by Vhong Navarro.The movie is going to be a joint venture between Regal and Viva Films.Gagamboy 2 will star Vhong Navarro, Aubrey Miles, Vice Ganda, Xyriel Anne Manabat, Zaijan Jaranilla, Angelica Panganiban, Rene Boy Facunla a.k.a. Ate Glow, Kathryn Bernardo, Albie Casiño, Julia Montes, Andi Eigenmann, Tricia Santos and Ivan Dorschner.
While it is obvious that there is actually redundancy in the list of newbie stars to debut in this film.Let me just state for the record that the list is actually tentative.Angelica Panganiban I believe is actually being eyed to be one of the cast if ever her movie with Vhong will “click”! Xyriel and Zaijan will become the eye candies of this film.I wonder what the lead stars of Mara Clara are doing here and so with Andi Eigenmann.If ever they’ll be in this movie they will probably steal the story so better not debut in this film.What? Tricia Santos? Don’t get me wrong but please – Is she still around? Ivan’s okay but if he’s there to just get paired up with Tricia then it would be better if he’s not going to be in the movie at all.
Gagamboy stars Aubrey Miles and Ate Glow and will reprise their respective roles.If Angelica will become part of this film, she might intervene with the romance of Junie(Vhong Navarro) and Liani(Aubrey Miles).From the last installment of Gagamboy, he stood up against and won over Ipisman (Jay Manalo).This time he’s going to face the evil yet witty villain portrayed by Vice Ganda (say, Gagambading?).Hahaha! 😉
The movie hasn’t got any director yet but it is slated to released in the second quarter of 2011.
Here’s the trailer of the 2004 Erik Matti film “Gagamboy”.
What I actually liked on this film is its setting.The story is quite moving and humor was well delivered but for an action fantasy film to be setted in the slum areas of Metro Manila is unique.Some details on this blog post is not official but Regal and Viva has been hinting for a sequel to “Gagamboy”.(Take a glimpse on the poster above) Like what we have predicted this superhero movie might just be released in 3D!
