Who's the perfect choice to be Maricel Soriano's sister in "MANO PO"?

Cameras have yet to roll as negotiations still remain as to who should get the plum role of Maricel Soriano's younger sister in "Mano Po" (with Richard Gomez and Eddie garcis) directed by Joel Lamangan, a Metro Manila Filmfest semifinalist.

Dear PEx'ers, lets all cast our votes as to who we think is deserving since Regal is still having a hard time deciding on who is it. By the way, the role is quite daring, so we heard. 'nuff said, and so here are the choices acytually, these are Regal's and Joel's choices):


a. Judy Ann Santos - Joel Lamangan's first choice..
this will apparently start her graduation to mature roles.. and what a perfect way it is... but, can she give justice?

b. Assunta de Rossi - she is red-hot and, absolutely, cooperative when it comes to disrobing (Joel Lamangan, is at the helm, remember?)... but all these changed with all these developments happening to her.. is she still in the thick of fight?

c. Ina Raymundo - she's a recent Best Actress winner, isnt she? But does she still carry the fire?

d. Ara Mina - well....

e. Others you have in mind.

    I've read about this MANO PO and I am curious...ano ba talaga ang kwento?

    I think we cannot choose who would be best suited to play the role if we don't know the flow of the story...

    I read na 3 sisters daw un diba...so kung 3 - Maricel would be one so 2 nalang kailangan.

    I wonder why Judy Ann Santos, eh daring naman pala yung role. And if you notice kasama sa choices sina Ara Mina, Assunta and Ina...no offense meant pero -- morena si Ina at Assunta compared kay Maricel, Ara and Juday...paanong magiging magkapatid yun? unless magkaiba sila ng nanay...

    mahirap to...kailangan malaman muna natin kung anong kailangan talaga, pero maliban sa role...kung si Assunta ang mapipili, sana lang hindi MABITIN yung project...kasi nga diba, may nagbabantay sa kanya...
  • sabi ni billy balbastro,about a chinese family daw ito.kaya may mga scenes daw na kukunan sa states.pero tumanggi na si alfie for juday, yung isa daw sa tatlong sisters,si .
    dina bonnevie ang choice ni mother lily. as for the other sisister, feel ko ata si,
    claudine baretto kung okay sa star cinema,si claudine kasi medyo bagay magpa daring,nage-experiment na siya ng mga mature roles.saka para pare pareho silang mestiza.
  • si claudine maghuhubad? :hmm:

    Claudine? I agree! magandang combination ito...you mean si Maricel, si Dina at si Claudine? or si Dina ang papalit kay Maricel?

    Chinese family ba? Wala namang mukhang intsik sa mga artistang nabanggit ah...from Eddie Garcia, Richard Gomez at pati yung mga iba pa.

    maricel + dina

    kaya nga interesting at intriguing kung pano nila gagawin. di ba sa hollywood ganon, nakukuha sa make-up at costumes/outfits. knowing joel lamangan,may maganda siyang plano dyan.
  • JUDY ANN was one of the choices? Eh, hindi ko yata makita yun' ha'?!? There's no similarities between the two. I agree with some in here....CLAUDINE is a good choice. That seems more believable. At pareho silang great actresses and pretty silang pareho.
  • What about her niece, Meryl?

    Ni-research ko kanina...epic daw yung story, mula pa nung panahon ata ng hapon up to the present...ibang klase ito ah...
    kaya pala nandun si Eddie Garcia, siya siguro yung mula pa nung panahon ng hapon...:D
  • Naiintriga ako sa movie na ito. MANO PO??? Ilang beses ko na siyang nababasa sa mga newspapers and tabloids. Nabasa ko pa nga sa isang thread na gustong gustong makuha ng mga fans ni Maricel ang lead role.

    Kung papayagan si Claudine ng Star Cinema, Id go for CLAUDINE BARRETTO to play as younger sister. This would be a good follow-up after their successful team-up in Soltera.

    next is KRISTINE HERMOSA, why not?
  • title pa lang mukang maganda na. my choice is Claudine Barretto mas bagay siya kung isasama kina Maricel Soriano at Dina Bonnevie. Judy ann hindi ata bagay sa kanya ha...tingin ko lang. pero kasi mas may chemistry at dating if claudine barretto ang isasama dun sa movie. Kristine Hermosa? i don't think so na bagay din, kasi ang mga makakasama niya eh puro magagaling umarte.. Imagine na lang kung kasama niya si Maria with Dina then, kristine? ...baka masapawan siya ng dalawa or Maricel and Claudine with Kristine..di talaga bagay..mas match yung first 3 actresses.

    No offense meant...pero kung si Kristine Hermosa lalamunin lang siya ng mga kaeksena niya. I have nothing against her pero magmumukha lang siyang kawawa at malamang putaktihin ng mga critics...


    Just remember what happened to Dawn Zulueta sa movie niya with Nora Aunor and Eddie Garcia, yung BAKIT MAY KAHAPON PA...directed by JOEL LAMANGAN din yun...naging issue yung na-take 2 siya sa mga scenes niya with the 2 great actors. Dawn Zuleta na yun ah...may award narin siya...but still nahirapan siya sa demand nung role...

    What more kung si KRISTINE HERMOSA ang ilagay sa ganong sitwasyon - remember pang MMFF yung movie kaya for sure serious ito...baka hanggang take 10 pa siya or more - ma-high-blood lang si Direk Joel sa konsimisyon.

    If ever makakasama niya Eddie Garcia, Richard Gomez, Maricel Soriano, Dina Bonnevie...I doubt if she can cope
    :rolleyes:
  • WaGGy :evil_lol:
  • Kung di makukuha si Claudine, (papayag ba ang Star Cinema?) second choice ko siJodi Sta.Maria . I like her. She's pretty at *okay* naman umarte.

    MANO PO - interesting talaga. Waggy ano pa info mo sa movie na ito? Definite na ba talaga yung Marya,Richard,Eddie sa casting?
  • WAGGY

    :laugh: it's okay, wala iyon. we have different opinions and i respect your views.

    I do believe that Kristine Hermosa is a good choice to play the role of a younger sister to Maricel Soriano. Bakit naman hinde siya bigyan ng chance, marami namang artista before na hinde marunong umarte pero ngayon ay okay na naman. If i were Kristine, acting side by side w/ a thespian like Maricel Soriano is a challenge. I will take it as a challenge. Magandang training for Kristine na makatrabaho niya ang professional at very intense actress like Maricel. But i doubt kung payagan siya ng Star Cinema.

    second choice ko siJodi Sta.Maria .

    I agree with you. Jodi Sta Maria is a nice choice. kaya lang maybe they want a young actress na may "hatak" na rin sa tao and Jodi is not that bankable pa. kaya siguro gusto nilang makuha ang services ni Judy Ann dahil kilala na. Sayang, kasi ang dami nating mahuhusay na young actress na hinde napapansin.
  • Mano Po? Intriguing movie title. TWO sisters lang bakit nakasama si Dina Bonnevie? I thought its for Marya and Juday only. I heard na tinanggihan na raw ito ng camp ni Judy Ann kaya si Juday ay out na sa mga choices.

    Kung daring ang role, my choices would be:

    1. Jodi Sta. Maria
    2. Ara Mina
    3. Rica Peralejo
    4. Claudine Barretto ( i doubt kung ipahiram ng Star Cinema)
    5. Kristine Hermosa (ditto w/ claudine)
  • I read that Judy Ann is the first choice for this one considering na nagkasama na si Maricel at Juday sa Narito ang Puso ko na Filmfest din at kumita din. Actually Joel Lamangan and Mother Lily tried to convince Juday kaya lang mahihirapan kasi nisalang na ang Movie with Robin Padilla sa Viva this month which Robin tried to prioritize over his other prpjects. Then as sabi sabi biglaan ang pasok ng Star Cinema nga na ituloy na ang Piolo movie na nagstart na rin this month. Maybe a strategy para di na ibook pa c Juday kasi nakacontract na nga sya sa ABS di ba. Then may US shows pa starting Septeber hanggang October. Starcinema wants the movie of Piolo and Juday for this year sana kaya super hectic ang scedules nila. Pagtinanggap pa ni Juday ito baka kahit isang pelikula sa tatlo walang matapos . Kaya nga nag-give way na rin sila sa Sa Puso na hanggang August pero still ininsist ng ABS na iextend hanggang September dahil sa mga Sponsors.
    Anyhow Joel Lamangan is comfortable with Juday kaya nga gusto nya ilift up ang image nya to serious roles. Kung kay Maricel ...natural dapat magaling din ...galing niya noh!


    Malabo ata si Claudine since ABS might be too strict sa mga Talent nila. Tignan mo nga ngayon si Jolina lahat inalis... naglast episode ang Arriba nya na di nya alam na last taping na yun. Ika nga nya ...take it or leave it lahat. I dont think Claudine will do that lalo nat baby sya ng ABS. Pagkakaiba lang nila ni Juday nagsimula si Juday na free lancer at di lang talent ng ABS. Pero sa acting may chemistry sila ni Maria ...lalo na dun sa Soltera.

    Kristine Hermosa??? Same sa case ni Claudine... talent ng ABS eh mukhang mahirap. Plus accept it di pa sya hasa sa acting . Hilaw pa talaga. Bukod sa hirap syang magemote eh may punto ang pagdadialogue nya lalo nat pag humahagulgol sya. pansin nyo sa Pangako ... Mas gusto ko pang umiyak si Jody ... at lalo na si Kaye! sana nga magimprove sya tutal maganda sya eh.
  • sorry po, d pede sila juday at claud. may exclusive contract sila sa star cinema/abs-cbn.

    si juday ata one year contract pa starting may 2002 up to may 2003.
    si claud ewan ko pero alam ko exclusive contract din siya

    capotla wala ako gano alam dito...ayaw pa nilang sabihin yung plot. Basta yung nabasa ko lang, 3 sisters daw yun and EPIC daw yung movie...na mula pa nung panahon ng hapon up to the present (pero hindi hapon yung main characters pero may pagka chinese daw- i wonder nga kung paano ito eh).

    Kung may 3 sisters at may panahon pa ng hapon, it would be safe to assume na ang tatay dun ay si Eddie Garcia. I read the old write-ups about this movie and the title then was MANO PO, ITAY for some reason naging MANO PO nalang. I wonder nga kung ano yung role ni Richard Gomez dun eh...my wild guess is baka siya ang gaganap ng young Eddie Garcia nung panahon ng hapon (guess lang).
