MANILA, Philippines – Hunk actor Zanjoe Marudo believes that his newest film “Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme,” which stars Eugene Domingo, will do well at the box office.

The film is the sequel of “Kimmy Dora,” a smash hit movie in 2009.

“Baka naman sabihin na mayabang ako pero, wala talagang pressure. Feeling ko ay mas maganda talaga ito at mas kikita ito nang malaki,” he said.

Directed by Joyce Bernal, “Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme” tells the story of identical twins Kimmy and Dora (both played by Domingo) who will discover a dark specter.

In the film, Marudo will play the role of Barry (Kimmy’s love interest), the same as his character in “Kimmy Dora.”

“Ganoon pa rin ang role ko, ako pa rin si Barry. Taga-bundok at nakilala ni Kimmy. Dito sa part 2 ay lumuluwas na ako sa Maynila at dinadalaw ko na si Kimmy kasi ako ang magbibigay ng ligaya kay Kimmy sa kabila ng pagiging masungit niya,” he said.

“Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme” will hit theaters on June 13.
