Skylight Films never fails to tell a great story. It was an unforgettable learning experience visiting the set of Bromance The Movie to be distributed by Star Cinema last Saturday at San Sebastian St. Manila with fellow entertainment bloggers. At first I thought that Bromance would be a story of two guys falling in love or somehow linked to a romantic relationship. First written by Joel Mercado as shared to us by Director Wenn De Ramas, My Brother's Romance or Bromance of Skylight Films is a story of twin brothers played by the handsome and sexy Zanjoe Marudo with Cristine Reyes.
Zanjoe playing Brandy the gay who works hard to make ends meet for the family is not a typical homosexual role. Setting a gay role which he started playing in Star Cinema's 24/7 in Love opposite Bea Alonzo, Zanjoe Marudo had gained respect and more awareness on gender sensitivity. He will play a classy, refined gay as Brandy which we may pertain these days as metro-sexual. Sexy Maricar De Mesa will play as the sister and Arlene Muhlach as the mother. I was so excited at the revelations of Direk Wenn De Ramas about the movie and how he was able to convince the stars to join this powerhouse cast.
How we all perceive Filipino gays these days will be totally defined by Brandy's character in Bromance. Zanjoe's travails as a homosexual paired with typical Filipino life struggles of poverty and discrimination will set the viewers in awe and laughter. Referred by Direk Wenn De Ramas as the Adam Sandler of the Philippines, Zanjoe Marudo played along the interview saying he'd also set up his own production company just like Adam and name it Happy Marudo. He could not believe that many people admire him playing a gay role.
I'm so excited for Zanjoe and Arlene Muhlach's characters in the Bromance The Movie by Skylight Films distributed by Star Cinema showing on May 15, 2013. What particular lines would be most memorable in Bromance The Movie? Watch it at all cinemas nationwide on May 15!
