Vice Ganda Replaces John Lapus in 'Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy' Movie with Maricel Soriano

Posted on February 2, 2013 | 6:27 PM

The upcoming movie Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy which stars Vice Ganda, Maricel Soriano and Gabby Concepcion was initially made for John 'Sweet' Lapus as his launching solo movie. However, he was replaced by Vice Ganda in the said film.

Vice Ganda and John Lapus

John Lapus confirmed in his PEP interview that Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy is supposedly his launching movie which was already planned right after the box office success of their film Moron 5 and the Crying Lady.

"The concept is from my fairy godmother, screenwriter Mel del Rosario. Galing ito sa napanood ni Mother Mel na pagpapalit ko ng character sa Moron 5 And The Crying Lady at sa Here Comes The Bride. So, sa tanong kung sa akin ba talaga ang project na Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy—yes, para sa akin talaga ‘yon."

But why did Vice Ganda replace him in the project?

Sweet told PEP.ph that he and Star Magic asked Viva Films if he could do an in-depth preparation for the role since they wanted his launching movie to be perfect. Direk Wenn, the movie's director also wanted Sweet to lose some weight and Viva agreed to the conditions.

It was Direk Wenn Deramas, according to Sweet who changes his mind and offered Vice the role. The reason is that the director already needed to shoot for the film since he had already finished taping for the teleserye Kahit Puso'y Masugatan. Direk Wenn, in all fairness asked his permission to give Vice the role.

Since Sweet is not physically and mentally prepared for the role, and his schedule did not permit him to do the movie, he had no choice but wait for a new concept for his launching film which will start rolling right after the KathNiel film in March where he is also a part. Sweet is also currently doing Kahit Konting Pagtingin.

Sweet admitted that he felt sad at first but he realized that if a project is not meant for you, it will not prosper. Viva, according to him, is now planning for a new concept for his launching movie.

Erich Gonzales Reunites with Richard Somes in Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi

Posted on November 30, 2012 | 3:08 PM

After “Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang”, Erich Gonzales stars in another dark and gritty film by acclaimed director Richard Somes, “Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi” that will be screened during the 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival.

Somes admitted that he loved Erich’s acting style, “I thought Erich really suited the lead character of Mariposa and I have already written the script to really suit her personality. The problem was, she became super busy because of her other commitments,” he said.

The director who has worked with Erich thrice was surprised when the seasoned actress informed him that she has received the script and felt ecstatic to do the film. “We talked and she agreed to adjust her schedule to make room for Mariposa,” Somes said.

In Mariposa, Erich will portray a ‘probinsiyana’ who ventures into the city to find her long lost sister. Somes said that this reunion would be fun and easy for both of them since he already knew what Erich is capable of. “Erich will portray a very challenging role here and very different from the ones she has done so far,” he said.

The director mentioned that in the film, Erich skinned a monitor lizard without any hint of fear and that she has some really amazing fight scenes without the help of a double. “You will really see a ‘kickass’ Erich in this film,” he said.

Likewise for Alfred Vargas who also stars in Mariposa. Somes said that Vargas prepared physically and mentally for this project, “Alfred has always been pictured as a kind and handsome corporate guy; very clean and gentlemanly. But here in Mariposa, he’ll portray a very different role; the characters here are dark, grim and gritty,” he said.

The film was set in 1994 in the gloomy side of Metro Manila. “Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi” also stars Joel Torre, Mark Gil, Rez Cortes, Maria Isabel Lopez, Dennis Padilla and John Lapus who will also portray a shocking role.

“There are a lot of compelling scenes in Mariposa. Erich was very fantastic in portraying a really strong woman,” said Somes.

Watch “Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi” on December 1 at 5:00 p.m., December 5 at 9:15 p.m. and December 8 at 2:30 p.m. at the Robinson’s Galleria Movie World and December 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Edsa Shang-ri La Cineplex during the 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival.

The 2012 Cinema One Originals festival will run from November 28 to December 9 at Robinson’s Galleria Movie World and from November 29 to December 4 at the Edsa Shangri-La Cineplex. The festival’s much awaited awards night will be held on December 3 at the Studio 1, ABS-CBN Main Building.

The 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival is an annual project of the Cinema One, the local movie channel on cable, owned and operated by Creative Programs, Inc (CPI).
