Paulo Avelino to reprise his role in second Heneral Luna movie
The trilogy is happening!
(SPOT.ph) It's really happening, movie fans! The second film in the Heneral Luna bayani trilogy is officially pushing through!
Paulo Avelino is set to lead the second film, where he will reprise his role as Gregorio Del Pilar. The biopic will be entitled Goyong. So far, no release date has been announced, but it will take them about two to three years to produce the film, as they are still conducting research. An earlier report also said that Mon Confiado will be back as Emilio Aguinaldo.
In an interview with PEP.ph, Paulo admitted that he was nervous about matching the records set by the first movie, saying, "Sana suportahan. Kung hindi man mapantayan 'yong suporta ng Heneral Luna, malagpasan pa."
According to reports, Heneral Luna has broken multiple records, including highest-grossing historical film and longest theatrical run (eight consecutive weeks). If you want to relive the excitement, you can still catch the film in a special one-week screening at Power Plant Mall.
