Robin Padilla excited to MMFF film entry '10,000 Hours'
Action celebrity Robin Padilla seems recognized that his movie, “10,000 hours,” was selected to be an entry to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival.
In the said movie, Padilla will be representing the part of a politician who went into concealing for several weeks to avoid the allegations created against him.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Padilla described how happy he is to title an action movie once again.
“Sampung libong oras akong nagtago. Ako’y isang senador dito at napagbintangan siya. Yung 10,000 hours, 'yun 'yung mga oras na siya’y nagtago, hinabol at nakabalik,” he said.
Padilla added: “Matindi ito. Habulan ito sa Europe. Siguro ngayon pa lang magkakaroon ng ganitong klaseng pelikula at ang punta ho namin sa Amsterdam, sa Eastern Europe. Matindi ito. Ang mga kaupakan ko dito mga puti.”
According to the 43-year-old acting professional, this movie will also be a gathering project of types with movie director Joyce Bernal.
“May lihim na pag-ibig sa isa’t isa ni Bb. Joyce. Matagal na naming pangarap ito. Nag-uumpisa pa lang kami sa Viva noong araw, gusto na naming gumawa ng ganung action. Pinagpala naman kami ng Panginoon na matuloy ito,” he said.
Meanwhile, the actor denied that he chose this movie over another project titled “Sa Ngalan ng Ama, Ina at Mga Anak,” which will be produced by his own brother, Rommel.
"Sa Ngalan ng Ama, Ina at Mga Anak" was among the film submissions that failed to earn a slot as an official entry to the 39th MMFF.
“Hindi [koi to mas pinili]. Isusumpa ako ni utol kasi si Kuya Rommel ang producer noon eh. Ako’y naghugas ng kamay dito. Nung ipinasa ang script ng ‘Sa Ngalan ng Ama,’ nagdasal lang ako na kung sinong matatanggap, 'yung ang sa palagay ko sa kanya pinagpala,” he said.
