Piolo Pascual ventures into movie production as he co-produces a new movie coming out this year.
Piolo is co-producing the film along with a group of businessmen. He is also starring in the movie, which is titled Manila and is a twinbill of two different stories inspired by two classic movies directed by the late masters of Philippine cinema -- Lino Brocka's Jaguar (1979) and Ishmael Bernal's City After Dark (1980).
In the urban jungle movie, Piolo will be joined by Rosanna Roces and Jodi Sta. Maria for the City After Dark-inspired film (to be directed by Raya Martin) and with Jay Manalo, Alessandra de Rossi, Anita Linda, and Jiro Manio for the Jaguar-inspired film (to be directed by Adolf Alix Jr.).
The two-in-one movie is set to be released for showing before the year's end.
