MMFF 2009: JUAN -- Starring Dolphy, Gloria Romero, Jeffrey Quizon & Heart Evangelista
Heart plays the young Gloria Romero in 'Juan'
Heart Evangelista had actually two entries in this years MMFF. "But I heard that she has only a few days of shooting in Juan (which Dolphy topbills and is produced by the comedy kings RVQ Productions)," said Mother Lily, "guest role lang siya sa pelikula."
Dolor Guevarra, who manages the showbiz career of Eric Quizon, Dolphys son who is at the helm of "Juan," supported Mother Lilys statement. "Ang alam ko rin Heart will play the young Gloria Romero, who plays naman the wife of Dolphy."
The young Dolphy is played by Epy Quizon, another son of Dolphy. "Si Vandolph naman ang gaganap na Eddie Garcia (who is Dolphys co-star) when Eddie ws still bata pa."
Is this the same movie which Dolphy was supposed to make with Willie Revillame?
"Ang alam ko kasama si Willie sa pelikula," Dolor replied. "But only because he hosts Wowowee, the TV program where Dolphy and Eddie supposedly meet.
"Actually, I have no idea yet how the story of the movie will end.
"Basta sabi lang ni Eric, maganda ito."
From Dolor, we also learned that Hearts role as the young Gloria Romero was first offered to Kristine Hermosa, who, right away, agreed to do it.
"Ang alam ko rin, ipinagpaalam siya ng RVQ Productions kina Mr. M (Johnny Manahan) and Mariols (Alberto), heads of Star Magic, talent and discovery arm of ABS-CBN.
"Pinayagan naman daw si Kristine, kaya nag report na siya for measurements for the costume which she will be using.
"A few days before the shooting, nabalitaan ko na lang from Eric that she backed out.
"Why? I asked Eric.
"He refused to elaborate."
