WATCH: Here's Your First Look at the Pinoy Remake of This Beloved Korean Comedy
It stars Sarah Geronimo and James Reid!
(SPOT.ph) Filipinos have long been fascinated with all things Korean. But if you're a casual viewer who enjoys watching shows or movies with a little bit of Korean culture in it, you can start with K-movie remakes first. VIVA Films just released the teaser trailer for their adaptation of Miss Granny, the beloved 2014 comedy film that originally starred Na Moon-hee and Shim Eun-kyeung. The Pinoy remake, directed by Joyce Bernal, is top-billed by Sarah Geronimo and James Reid.
Also starring Nova Villa and Xian Lim, Miss Granny follows the story of Fely, a grumpy and controlling elderly woman who finds out that her son might send her to a nursing home soon. After she goes to a strange and mysterious photo studio to have her portrait taken (so she can look good in her funeral photos), she's shocked to find that she's back...in her 20-year-old body.
There's no word yet on the film's release date, but we're keeping our fingers crossed (or hearts?) that it's coming soon!
