Donny Pangilinan and Loisa Andalio are all set to join Ronnie Alonte as the new leads for the upcoming sequel to the blockbuster hit “Vince and Kath and James”, “James and Pat and Dave”.
Speaking to members of the press at the film’s story conference today, February 21, they both admitted to being big fans of the first film, topbilled by Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto, and to feeling immense pressure as it was a huge success when it first hit cinemas as part of the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival.
Loisa revealed, “Kasi ‘yung ‘Vince and Kath and James,’ ilang beses kong napapanood, kasi sumasama talaga ako noon [sa viewings]. Kaya alam na alam ko ang story [noong first movie], kaya sobrang excited akong gawin ‘tong part two kasi dati napapanood ko lang, tapos ngayon, makakasama na ako sa sequel.”
As for Donny, he’s got a lot riding on “James and Pat and Dave”. He explained, “Siyempre may pressure talaga, pero good pressure. Para maging mas motivated po ako na mapatunayan that we really deserve this role and of course, napanood ko rin ‘yung [first] movie, I love the movie. And this is my first lead [role] sa Star Cinema.”
It will be the trio’s second time working together after the Vice Ganda-led “Fantastica”, another MMFF favorite, and Donny is excited to reunite with his co-stars. He says, “Well, for one ang ganda ng location naming for the shoot so I think it’s gonna be fun for us to shoot there. Sobrang excited lang ako, kasi I’ve seen how hardworking these two really are and I really want to still learn from them. And alam ni R2 ‘yung nangyari sa first movie, lahat, it’s nice to learn also from him about the sequel. I can’t wait to start.”
“James and Pat and Dave” is coming to cinemas soon!
