JOURNEY back to Malacanang starting March 1 for the opening of “Martyr or Murderer” the movie. It is the much awaited sequel to Darryl Yap’s mega hit “Maid in Malacanang.”

Yap thrives on controversy. A battery of lawyers surrounds Yap telling what can be allowed or not when it comes to the lines the cast would deliver.

“Martyr or Murderer” begins where “Maid in Malacanang” left off. It traced what happened to the Marcos family before and after Edsa Revolution, a peak at their life in exile and Imee Marcos’s exploits in Morocco. And the baffling question: why was the death of Senator Benigno Aquino blamed on the Marcoses?

Cesar Montano, Ruffa Gutierrez, Diego Loyzaga, Cristine Reyes and Ella Cruz reprise their roles as Ferdinand Marcos, Imelda Marcos, Bongbong Marcos, Imee Marcos and Irene Marcos, respectively. Playing Ninoy Aquino is Isko Moreno.

On February 25 is the anniversary of Edsa People Power Revolution. We thought it would the perfect date for the opening of Martyr or Murderer.

A part 3 is said to be coming up.

Alfred’s new movie not a remake

TALK of murderer, QC councilor Alfred Vargas depicts an ex-convict accussed of murdering his father in the mo vie, ‘Pieta’ (not a remake of a a Carlo Caparas, direk Adolf Alix, Jr. insists). Alfred is also the producer of the film and he is elated that superstar and National Artist Nora Aunor accepted the project. La Aunor plays his mother who is half-blind in her old age and suffering from dementia. Gina Alajar is also in the film. Worth seeing.

Good luck. Councilor Alfred. By REMY UMEREZ
