Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista revealed that after his 38th Metro Manila Film Fest entry ‘Shake Rattle and Roll 14′ he is set to do a comedy film called Raketeros. The film is an ensemble of pinoy comedy stars like Ogie Alcasid, Dennis Padilla, Michael V, Andrew E, Joey Marquez and Janno Gibbs. Attached to the director’s spotlight is singer actor and now director Randy Santiago. Tv5 actress Eula Caballero is also set to play the daughter of Herbert Bautista’s character.
The story is about friends whose personalities will clash in preparation and during the 18th birthday celebration of their friends’ daughter.
Although no major film outfit is attached to this film, Mayor Herbert Bautista was quick to announce that Raketeros is going to be a mainstream comedy backed by his sisters’ Heaven’s Best Production. The actors involved in this movie will also invest in the making of Raketeros. And while the title doesn’t have anything to do with the gist of the story given, the fact that these comedy stars will invest on this film makes them Raketeros! According to a source, this comedy film will have The Hangover films as “peg” to suit the kind of comedy that’s ‘in’ for today’s generation.
Also starring in the movie are Ruffa Mae Quinto and Nova Villa!
Raketeros will be released mid of this year! Are you excited to see these comedy stars work together in a comedy movie?
