'Mahal Kita, Pare Ko'

Philippine King of Comedy Dolphy will essay the role of Armando "Jun" Ducat in the upcoming biopic to be entitled "Mahal Kita, Pare Ko (Hosteyds Bus Da Movie)." Star Cinema is set to produce the film, to be released in theaters on April 11, 2007.

Senatorial candidate Cesar Montano will reprise his role as Ilocos Governor and fellow senatorial candidate Chavit Singson. (Montano previously starred in the Singson biopic.) Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr., TV anchor Julius Babao, and radio announcer Congressman Ted Failon will play themselves.

Malou Santos, Star Cinema Managing Director, dismissed claims that the studio was taking advantage of the situation. "This is a very timely movie with a relevant message for everyone in the country. That's why we are rushing this for after the Holy Week break."

She allayed fears that the movie would suffer from production values owing to its short release date. "We will simply reuse and edit existing footage from the crisis. We already have hours and hours of video, so you might say the principal filming has already been completed."

Film and komiks legend Carlo J. Caparas has signed up to helm the movie. Composer Lito Camo will write three original songs for the big dance numbers in the movie.

April Fools! Or is it....?
