In last year’s Metro Manila Film Festival, Bong Revilla joined forces with Vic Sotto in the mash-up of their previous flicks “Si Agimat at Si Enteng Kabisote”. This time around Bong Revilla returns to the big screen in the sequel of his 2009 movie “Ang Panday” with Marian Rivera who topbilled last year’s Super Inday and the Golden Bibe.
Ang Panday 2 will not only be featuring heavy CGI and special visual effects but will also feature the kick-ass tandem of Bong Revilla and Marian Rivera as Flavio and Arlana, respectively. Two warriors, one battle, one destiny.
While Sen. Bong Revilla Jr. will reprise his role as Flavio, Ang Panday. Marian Rivera, on the other hand will give a firebreath of life to “Bagwis”. Indeed, Marian Rivera will not only play the role of that familiar dragon, but a lady warrior who can transform into a dragon whenever the man she cares for is put at risk.
In an interview with PEP, Marian Rivera cited some similarities with her character Arlana.
“Si Arlana kasi ano, e, ahm…lovable siya, e.Tapos sa, pagdating sa family niya, love niya yung family niya. At siguro, kapag may love siya, lahat gagawin niya para mapatunayan din sa family niya na[…]
‘Ay! Deserve ko ‘to, mabait siya, okay siya.’
So si Arlana gano’n siya, e, patutunayan niya na worth ito, kaya ko ito ginagawa, kasi mabait na tao ito. Parang gano’n.[…]Gano’n si Arlana, sobrang lovable siya. Mabait siya sa nanay niya, sa kapatid niya. Yung kapatid niya kahit hindi masyadong mabait sa kanya, mabait pa rin siya.”
Ang Panday 2 is an entry to the 37th Metro Manila Film Festival. Showing this December 25, 2011!
