Coco hopes film with Vilma, Nora to push through
MANILA, Philippines – “Walang Hanggan” lead star Coco Martin revealed he is looking forward to doing a project with veteran actresses Nora Aunor and Vilma Santos for director Brillante Mendoza.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Sunday, Martin said there is still nothing definite about the dream project but he is hoping that it will push through.
“Dati pa nakonsepto 'yun. Sabi ko nga sana matuloy. Kahit anong trabaho, gagawin ko ang lahat para matuloy,” he said.
Martin said he would consider it an honor to be acting alongside Aunor and Santos.
“Masuwerte [ako]. Sabi ko nga makatrabaho ko lang sila okay na eh. Basta parte ako ng pelikula,” he said.
According to reports, Martin will be playing the son of either Aunor or Santos in the movie by the award-winning director.
Meanwhile, the actor extended his congratulations to Mendoza for the success of the film “Thy Womb” at the recently concluded Venice International Film Festival.
“Sorba akong nasisiyahan. Alam ko naman may mararating ang pelikula. Nasilip ko na 'yun bago sila umalis. And 'yung ‘Captive,’ sabi ko nga isa talaga sa maipagmamalaking pelikula,” he said.
Martin considers Mendoza one of his mentors in show business and has starred in many of the director's earlier indie projects such as "Masahista" and the Cannes-winning movie "Kinatay."
