It looks like the sequel to Jerry Bruckheimer's Top Gun is happening. Producer David Ellison shared that Justin Marks will pen the script and that it will put Tom Cruise's character "front and center."

The plot will reportedly involve drone technology and the "end of an era of dogfighting and fighter pilots."

In an interview with PEP.ph, Claudine said that they weren't just "civil" anymore, and instead have rekindled a friendship.

Manila is no stranger to dancing traffic enforcers, but this New York City cop took it to another level.

It's two times the charm for Makati's Vice Mayor, who was once again sworn in after another suspension order was served to Mayor Junjun Binay. According to reports, Peña took the oath despite his lawyer advising him to defer the rites. Meanwhile, Binay said he would defy the order (again) and take legal action to reverse the Ombudsman's decision.
Speaking of Mayor Binay, he may be in more trouble. According to Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, he may face additional administrative and criminal charges for "defying the preventive suspension order." Binay already filed his petition at the Court of Appeals Tuesday morning, around the same time Peña was sworn in.
