Just when we thought this issue has already been resolved when ER Ejercito had the chance to talk with Direk Tikoy here’s quite a puzzling news from the producers of Manila Kingpin: The Untold Story of Asiong Salonga movie. As of Yesterday, Director Tikoy Aguiluz is no longer credited as the official director of Asiong Salonga movie. In a PEP article it was stated that. .
The producers of Manila Kingpin: The Asiong Salonga Story have agreed to remove the name of Amable “Tikoy” Aguiluz VI from this period film, which earlier credited him as the director.
At the same time, the Metro Manila Development Authority, the government agency in charge of the Metro Manila Film Festival, has made clear that the showing of the controversial film will push through this Sunday, December 25, the official opening day for all festival entries.
Strangely, this is the only entry among the seven Metro Manila Film Festival 2011 that has no director. Anyway, get to know Nicasio “Asiong” Salonga, how he lived by the gun and die by the gun! In theaters December 25, 2011.
