What flavor of entertainment can we expect from "Kusina Kings"?
After the story conference of the upcoming Star Cinema film "Kusina Kings," yesterday, October 11, its director Victor Villanueva shared some details about the movie, together with his main actors Zanjoe Marudo and Empoy.
Direk Victor gave us an initial taste to the storyline. He shared:
"It's a story about two close friends na nag-away. Ang setting niya is sa isang restaurant and they have to work together para mapa-[lago] nila 'yung restaurant, at the same time, ma-save 'yung friendship nila."
Zanjoe and Empoy will play the titular characters who will struggle with their differences to be able to save their business.
"Yung character ko rito, si Ronnie, best friend ko 'yung character ni Empoy na si Benjie. Hindi ako ganun kagaling magluto kagaya ng best friend ko na sobrang galing magluto."
But there's a twist! The three revealed that Empoy's character will be a spirit.
"Naging espiritu siya kasi na-comatose siya [si Benjie], so kailangan silang magtulungan para mapaunlad 'yung restaurant," Direk Victor said.
Now that adds more spice to the story!
Zanjoe said that he and Empoy have talked about doing a project together and he's glad that it's finally happening.
He said, "Actually, excited kami. Ayun, natuloy na. Matagal na naming naplano 'to ni Empoy na gumawa talaga ng project together and ito nag-start na siya, at naniniwala ako sa tandem na 'to."
Direk Victor also shared that they have already asked for the help from the experts when it comes to food technicalities. Sounds like we'll get to see some awesome food action!
"We're getting consultants sa kitchen, on how to go about sa food preparation and sa safety rin," he said.
Empoy, who recently signed an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN and Star Cinema, is hoping that everyone will get to watch the movie.
He said, "Sasarapan po namin 'yung recipe nito para po magustuhan niyo."
We're excited to see how this comedy movie will turn out!
