Question: Who is the Best Replacement for JM de Guzman for the Role of Pedro Calungsod?


Source: www.philstar.com

MANILA, Philippines -Amid released publicity photos and mounting anticipation for the upcoming film based on the life of Filipino teen martyr Saint Pedro Calungsod, JM de Guzman backed out from playing the title role of the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry.

De Guzman's father Ronnie confirmed in an interview with an entertainment website that the actor will be withdrawing from starring the indie film San Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir due to be released in the festival this December.

The elder De Guzman cited the actor's "health" as reason for withdrawing from the project, saying that he does not want his son to suffer tedious production and hours required to film the movie.

De Guzman is "going through something," his father said.

The movie's director Francis Villacorte said in the interview that regrets that the cast is losing De Guzman, whom he has always thought to be the "ideal actor" to play Calungsod - the catechist martyred in Guam in the 1600s.

"The role is very demanding emotionally, mentally, physically," Villacorte said, adding that he understands the elder De Guzman's concerns.

Villacorte, who is now in search for another actor who can replace de Guzman, reportedly worked on the script for two years prior to offering the title role to the actor.

"I suppose, since we’re telling a story of faith, it takes some kind of faith in the material and in the subject for people to really commit to the finish line," the director said.

Fans, meanwhile, started to speculate on who can play Calungsod in the film, posting their guesses on social media.

Villacorte said that he will soon formalize De Guzman's withdrawal through the MMFF committee.

    Edgar alllan guzman - pwedi rin. Subok na ang akting.
    Jericho rosales - thumbs up kaso may pagkakulot ang buhok, di bale may wig naman diyan.
    Alex medina - kaso mukhang chinito.
    Enchong dee - pwedi. Di naman halatang chikwa kasi moreno talaga.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hindi pwede si Carlo Aquino, bansot kasi siya at hindi maamo ang face.

    Roco nacino, pahaba face niya e.

    Coco- bansot din at hindi niya kamukha si Calungsod.

    Piolo - mabait ang face, kamukha niya si Calungsod actually. Kaya lang kung makakapartner niya mga bansot na actors di tutugma kasi matangkad si Piolo. Baka kutusan niya lang ang mga gugulpi sa kanya.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Si alex medina naman maliit din at singkit. Di naman singkit si Calungsod.

  91. 18 years old lang pala c Pedro Calungsod, ang Filipinong Santo. Dapat ang gaganap d2 ay d tisoy at d lalampas ng 18 - 22 yrs old para kapanipaniwala. Cna Jason Abalos, Roco Naccino, Carlo Aquino, Alex Medina, Enchong Dee at Edgar Allan Guzman mga good actors cla pero ung pinaka malapit sa idad ni Filipinong Santo ang dapat mapili. Maraming magagaling na talent na grumaduate sa Going Bulilit nun bakit d cla isali, pati cna Makisig Morales at Jiro Manio mga bata. Sayang sana cna Diego Loyzaga at Khalil Ramos mga wala nga lang husay sa acting, yung anak ni Gary Estrada kay Cheska Diaz may acting din yun.
