Which one will direk Joyce give up?
By Nathalie Tomada (The Philippine Star) | Updated June 20, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Director Joyce Bernal was happy to learn that her two new film projects are among the eight official entries in the forthcoming 39th Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), but she might have to give up one.

Direk Joyce confirmed to The STAR that she was informed last Tuesday, the day when MMDA chair Francis Tolentino announced the full line-up, that there’s an MMFF ruling that no director can have two entries. A screening committee source said that the lady director would have to choose which film she will do for this year’s MMFF, although there’s no official word from the execom yet.

The two movies, which have listed her as the director, include Robin Padilla’s 10,000 Hours with Michael de Mesa and Bela Padilla as co-stars. The action-drama under Philippine Film Studio, Inc. is inspired by events that transpired when Sen. Panfilo Lacson went into hiding and became a fugitive in 2010, direk Joyce told The STAR.

The other one is the dramedy Torky and My Little Bossing under OctoArts Films, M-Zet TV Productions, APT Entertainment, Inc. and Kris Aquino Productions.

It’s a Vic Sotto and Kris Aquino starrer, but Kris will appear intermittently in the film. The movie also serves as the launching movie of Kris’ son Bimby with new GMA 7 child sensation Ryzza Mae Dizon.

Direk Joyce said that the film tells the story of a mother and a child (Kris and Bimby) whose lives are in danger. Mother temporarily leaves young son in the care of Vic’s character for safety. Ryzza, meanwhile, will play Vic’s granddaughter. “Ang cute and ang ganda ng story,” Joyce said.   

While direk Joyce sees no problem finishing the two in time for the filmfest, as she will wrap up shooting 10,000 Hours in August and begins filming Torky and My Little Bossing in September, still “if it’s the ruling, I will accept it.”

“I don’t know what to do personally,” said Joyce, but if really made to choose, she’ll have to go with 10,000 Hours because the project was offered to her first early this year and she started shooting it a few days ago.

Another MMFF entry is the third Kimmy Dora film. Joyce directed the previous ones but the MMFF entry will be directed by Chris Martinez. “It’s the prequel and I’m still part of it as one of the producers” under Spring Films.

Meanwhile, a religious biopic is another standout in this year’s MMFF roster. San Pedro Calungsod Batang Martir is a film on the second Filipino saint, Pedro Calungsod, who was canonized in Vatican last year.

When asked how the religious-historical drama will attract mainstream viewers, director Francis Villacorta said, “I hope the Filipino youth is ready for this kind of material since this is an alternative viewing for them since Pedro Calungsod is supposed to be an example of the youth and for migrant workers. For two years, I have researched for this material heavily. I have begun my own devotion for San Pedro Calungsod because of this film. It became my own quest to tell this story.”

He added, “More than a year since we announced this project with JM de Guzman (in the title role) so many happened in the life of JM but he didn’t waver in the project. Giving up on this project was not an option. If we didn’t make it to the MMFF, we have another plan.”

Ayon sa mga taga-Spring Films, si Chris Martinez na ang direktor ng Kimmy Dora prequel na pinagbibidahan pa rin ni Eugene Dominguez katambal ang co-producer na si Piolo Pascual.

Si Direk Joyce Bernal ay co-producer pa rin ng Kimmy Dora prequel pero kailangan niyang i-give-up ang pagdidirek ng third installment ng nasabing movie franchise dahil dalawa na ang pelikulang pamamahalaan niya sa MMFF 2013, ang 10,000 Hours (pagbibidahan ni Robin Padilla) at Torky and My Little Bossing (nina Vic Sotto, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Bimby Yap at Kris Aquino).

May TV series ding pinamamahalaan sa ngayon si Direk Joyce, kaya imposibleng magawa pa niya ang Kimmy Dora prequel na “madugong” i-shooting dahil dalawa ang characters dito ni Eugene.

KIMMY DORA PREQUEL FOR MMFF. Naitanong din namin kay Eugene ang Metro Manila Film Fest entry niya na Kimmy Dora.
Sa September pa raw ang shooting nila nito.
“Kimmy Dora prequel at sa September pa ang shooting namin. And I heard, I’d like to congratulate Springfilms and especially, the director now is Chris Martinez. Siya ang nagsulat ng one and two.”
Dugtong pa niya, “I think, according to very reliable sources, number one siya sa screening committee ng MMFF, based on the script. Very inspiring. Natutuwa ako na yung mga proyekto ko this year, sa material pa lang, maganda na.
“At itong Tuhog nga ang pinaka-buena-mano.”
Si Piolo Pascual na ba ang leading man niya sa prequel ng Kimmy Dora?
“Yun ang balita ko,” nakangiti niyang sabi.
“The producer himself, para mas matipid.”

Sam Milby replaces Piolo Pascual as Eugene Domingo's leading man in Kimmy Dora: Ang Kiyemeng Prequel

Eugene Domingo believes Sam Milby is “perfect” to be her leading man in the Metro Manila Film Festival 2013 entry Kimmy Dora: Ang Kiyemeng Prequel.

Piolo Pascual was supposed to star in the third instalment of the Kimmy Dora franchise but the actor had to let go of the project because of scheduling problems.

Piolo is currently promoting the prison drama OTJ (On The Job) and he is currently shooting for his upcoming movie with Toni Gonzaga.

Eugene and Sam had their look test for the comedy film yesterday, August 13, at the G-Force Studio in Quezon City.

Uge (Eugene’s nickname) pointed out, “Sa Kimmy Dora prequel, Sam will be playing a very, very challenging role.”

What can viewers expect from this movie?

The actress said, “Asahan n’yo na iba na naman ang genre niya, although comedy pa rin.

"At combination siya ng Kimmy Dora 1 and may puzzle, may mga kailangan i-solve.

"Think James Bond na kind of movie pero papunta sa Austin Powers!”

THE PROMISE. Uge explained that she is doing Kimmy Dora for the MMFF to fulfil her promise to Spring Films, the production outfit composed of Piolo, Erickson Raymundo, Shayne Sarte, and Joyce Bernal.

“Dapat ang Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme ay MMFF pero yung schedule ko ang problema noon.

"This is a promise that I made to Spring Films and this is the third and the last [installment].

“Yun ang ipinangako ko kay Piolo at sa Spring Films na makasama sa Film Fest. Masaya talaga pag Pasko at alam ko aabangan ng lahat ang Kimmy Dora.”

Unlike her past films, Uge said that she will not have torrid kissing scenes with her leading man this time.

“Walang torrid kissing…pero may ibang part na iki-kiss,” teased Uge.

What made Eugene decide to make this film the last instalment of Kimmy Dora?

“Para sa akin kasi 1, 2, 3 okay na. Tamang-tama ang script ni Chris Martinez na ito na ang pinaka-last.

"I’m very happy that Sam Milby accepted it.

“Believe it or not, Sam is perfect for the role.”

Sam, on the other hand, said, “And that means a lot.”

Uge reiterated that this will be the last time she will be bringing life to the twins Kimmy and Dora.

“Hindi na rin kaya ng leeg ko!” quipped Uge as she demonstrated the way Dora would twist her neck as she spoke.

The movie will take place a few years before the first Kimmy Dora, which is why Eugene will have to be made to look younger in the movie.

Does she think she will have a hard time looking younger for the movie?

“Hindi naman kasi ang metabolic age ko 18 [years old]!” joked Uge.

KIMMY DORA FAN. For his part, Sam feels “excited” and “pressured” to be chosen as the replacement of Piolo in Kimmy Dora 3.

“I’m very excited. I’m a fan of Kimmy Dora talaga,” said the Kapamilya actor.

“Yung success ng first two [installments], nakakatulong talaga yun.

"I mean, Kimmy Dora is already established and people really loved it, accepted it.

"Ako rin, I'm a fan, so I think that will also help a lot for this third sequel,” pointed out the Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala star.
