Lav Diaz + John Lloyd Cruz + Ricky Lee: A peek into 'Servando Magdamag'

Three of the industry’s biggest names, John Lloyd Cruz, director Lav Diaz, and legendary screenwriter Ricky Lee, are joining forces for "Servando Magdamag"!

In the teaser ABS-CBN Films, Black Sheep dropped tonight, February 5, we finally learned a little bit about the story it will try to tell as well as some key details about the character John Lloyd will play.

It will be his first major project after a few years away from the spotlight — an adaptation of a short story of the same name, also penned by its screenwriter.

"Si John Lloyd plays Servando Sais, kasi pamilya nila may lahing Kastila na mga haciendero,” Ricky said.

“It's all about the death of the Monzon family. It's a feudal family, nasa crossroads siya,” Direk Lav revealed. “In short, 'yung premise ng kwento is it's a history of Filipino violence in the country. Kasaysayan ng karahasang Pilipino ‘yung kwento.”

"Servando Magdamag" marks the third film collaboration between Direk Lav and John Lloyd after "Ang Babaeng Humayo" and "Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis," both released in 2016.
