After the media conference Q&A for the upcoming comedy flick Sanggano, Sanggago’t Sanggwapo last August 19, lead stars Dennis Padilla, Andrew E., and Janno Gibbs were interviewed by some members of the press about the movie and other topics, including the remake of the Pedro Penduko film franchise.
Janno, who portrayed the Filipino folk superhero in the years 1994 and 2000, said he is okay with the upcoming remake and was asked whether he will have a cameo appearance in the film or not.
“I’m not sure,” the singer-actor said. “’Di ko lang alam kung magka-cameo ako. Okay lang, of course. Iba na ’yong generation ngayon, eh. They deserve their own Pedro Penduko.”
He then revealed that he is open to returning as Pedro Penduko in the silver screen after the remake makes its premiere in local cinemas.
“Honestly, pwede pa rin naman ako gumawa ng [movie] after may gumawa ng batang Pedro Penduko,” he said. “Actually, pwede pa ko gumawa ng sarili ko. Parang si Wolverine, si Logan. Bumalik siya ulit na matanda na siya. I can still do that.”
He then told the press that he actually presented his own concept of Pedro Penduko to executives at Viva Films, along with acclaimed film director Erik Matti, the man behind his Pedro Penduko: Episode II - The Return of the Comeback.
“Nag-present din ako, in all honesty,” Janno revealed. “Ang director ko noon si Erik Matti. Nag-present uli kami ni direk Erik sa Viva, kaya lang may naka-ready na ang Viva na ibang Pedro Penduko.”
With his version of Pedro Penduko still in shelves, you can still catch Janno and the rest of the gamols in Viva’s newest comedy offering Sanggano, Sanggago’t Sanggwapo which will premiere in cinemas on September 4.
