THE “P” TALKS!
BY: Pilar Mateo
AND OGIE DIAZ just keeps on ticking off the things he dreams about in his bucket List.
From being a reporter in print and on television, to managing artists and keeping his rows of apartments for rent, a teleradyo with MJ Felipe and more, the good husband and father has ventured into movie producing.
“Hindi naman ako lang ito mag-isa. Syempre, may mga investors din na sumuporta at naniwala sa aming proyekto gaya ng CMB Productions and Lonewolf Productions at si Boss Vic del Rosario at ang Viva Films.
“Si Direk Benedict Mique eh, matagal ko ng kaibigan. At nasubaybayan ko naman ang kanyang mga proyekto. Kaya for my first venture, itong “Two Love You”, buung-buo ang tiwala ko sa kanya.”
The premise of the story, “Kaya mo bang magmahal ng dalawa na ‘di nalalaman nung isa?” stemmed from a real life situation of Ogie.
And it revolves with the 3 Gs-girl, guy and gay!
“Ideya ko na ikinuwento ko kay Direk atsa writer na si Carlo Ventura. Na ‘yung tauhan, si.Yen Santos itinuring na kapatid ni Lassy pero na-tempt na jowain si Kid Yambao na boyfriend na ni Lassy. Love triangle na may ibang twist. Tipikal na kwento na mula pa 2015 namin binubuo nina Direk.”
Ogie and his Ogie Diaz Productions is gambling on the comic duo of Lassy and MC Muah who are proteges of Meme Vice Ganda.
Said Lassy, “Hindi ko talaga ito in-expect. O ni hindi ko inisip na the time will come na eto, gagawin kaming bida sa pelikula. Bukod sa family ko na una kong sinabihan, si Meme Vice agad ang binalitaan ko about it at tuwang-tuwa siya. Sige lang daw and he will support us all the way.”
Because it is also a love story, people want to know if Yen and Kid will have a kissing scene.
Yen said yes, and even described the kiss as sweet. Kid being a kid!
If she and Lassy also had one of something that people have to watch.
She can kiss a guy. She definitely will like it. There’s a possibility that her lips and Lassy’s touched, too. But if there is one thing that Yen plays in her mind, is that of kissing another girl. For reel and for real!
“Yes, opo! Open naman ako kahit sa tomboy. Even for real. Meron naman bading na nai-in love rin sa babae.”
Loveless, yes Yen goes out on dates. But her heart has not yet found the one who will make hers sing.
Watch this feel-good movie on November 13, 2019.
Many can relate to this movie especially from the LGBTQIA community. There are lessons. Wisdom. In dealing with family, friends and people around you.
Another item that needs to be ticked in Ogie’s Bucket List is directing. Who knows, after this, the next project will already be helmed by him!
Asked how much worth he is now, he simply answered, “If I tell you that, eh paano na ang gi awa kong pagtawad sa mga artistang kinuha ko sa movie? Na friendly rate. P2M? Higher naman!”
THE better-half of Sorsogon Congressman Chiz Escudero, Heart Evangelista shared this in her FB account.
“We did it! Congratulations to us 7,127 Sorsoganons for breaking the Guinness World Record for largest Filipino folk dance!
