[starttext]Jose Mari Vicera, commonly known as "Vice Ganda" is on the title role for the remake of the 90's fantasy movie "Petrang Kabayo".First role played by Roderick Paulate, Vice Ganda said in an interview and I quote "Nababagabag ako, hindi na ako nakakatulog masyado, lalo na couple of weeks ago, napanood ko ‘yong Petrang Kabayo sa Cinema 1. Ang galing galing ni Roderick Paulate kaya sabi ko, hindi ko pwedeng gawin ‘yan kasi hindi ko matutumbasan ‘yan kaya kailangan mag-isip ako ng sarili kong eksena".
"Nagsimula sa tukso, ngayon, pelikula na siya. Noong una, natawa ako sa text ni direk Wenn kasi lagi naman kaming nagbibiruan. Sabi niya, nag-meeting na kami ng Viva at pumayag na sila at ikaw na. Doon ako natulala," he recalled
Overwhelmed, Vice Ganda acknowledges that his "unique" face is a blessing in disguise.What do you think of this upcoming filipino movie (remake)?
The film is about an ill-mannered Petra who is cursed by Silveria, the godess of horses. The curse turns Petra into a white horse. He only returns to normal if he respects and treats people well.
Above are clips from the original movie, you might see the transformation of Roderick into a horse!! I hope they won't be doing that in the remake . .make Vice's horse-looks more realistic!
