MANILA - Actresses Anne Curtis and Angel Locsin shared their excitement after learning they may be included an upcoming biopic of the country's King of Comedy Dolphy.
In an interview, Locsin and Curtis said they would be honored to be part of the project.
"Wow, totoo? Well of course, it's such an honor and I'd love to be part of someone's biopic, especially because I've been able to work with him (Tito Dolphy). It's an honor," Curtis said.
"Wow, ngayon ko lang narinig ito. Sana matuloy kasi unang una, Tito Dolphy 'yan at si Direk Erick Quizon. Ilang taon kong naka-trabho 'yon. Yong thought na magampanan ko 'yong pinili niyang role sa akin (eh iba na). Sana matuloy, sana. Exciting," Locsin added.
According to director Eric Quizon, son of Dolphy, the biopic is part of the celebration for his father's 60th year in showbiz.
"There are plans na gumawa ng masasabi nating biopic, but that's all in the planning stage," Eric said.
The women in Dolphy's life
If the project pushes through, the most interesting aspect of Dolphy's life is said to be his colorful love life.
When asked about actresses who can play the women in Dolphy's life, Eric replied: "Si Bea [Alonzo], nakikita ko, saka si Tita Grace [Engracia Domniguez], first wife ng daddy ko. Sa papel ni Tita Gloria [Gloria Smith], pwedeng si Angel [Locsin]. Sa papel ng mommy ko, pwedeng si Anne Curtis, Kristine Hermosa or Heart Evangelista. Sa part ni Lotis Key, pwede din si Anne Curtis. Part ni Tita Alma Moreno, pwedeng Angel Locsin."
Eric said he is confident he will be able to find the right people for these roles since the industry has a lot of good actresses.
"Masasabi natin marami tayong magagaling na young stars na maaring gumanap noon sa papel ng the women in Dolphy's life," Eric ended.
Dolphy's 65th year in showbiz
On November 27, Dolphy celebrated his 65th year in showbiz through a golf tournament organized by his children.
Dolphy's friends from in and out of showbiz participated in the "1st Pidol Cup" held at Eastridge Golf Club in Rizal.
Proceeds of the golf tournament will be go to the victims of recent typhoons.
The "Pidol Cup" will support the Habitat for Humanity through their on-going project called "Repair and Rebuild."
"The first annual Pidol Cup is the kick-off event because it's not going to be a one-day celebration. It's a whole year celebration. It starts up with this, and then the next event that we'll be having is, my dad has a movie called 'Nobody, Nobody But Juan.' Pagkatapos nun, marami pang iba," Eric said.
Those who were seen during the golf event were action star Monsour del Rosario, singer-composer Lito Camo, and actress Glydel Mercado.
Nobody, nobody but Juan
Dolphy's upcoming film, "Nobody Nobody But Juan," will be shown next month as an official entry to this year's Metro Manila Film Festival.
Eric, the film director, said his father will play Filipino-American elderly Juan dela Cruz. He also said that “Wowowee” main host Willie Revillame will play a vital role in the movie.
Dolphy explained the original plan was to have Revillame play a big role in the film, but due to the host’s hectic schedule, he could only commit to a cameo appearance.
