Vice Ganda revealed Friday that he will be co-starring in a new Star Cinema movie with Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach.

Speaking to reporters, the comedian shared that he immediately said "yes" when offered the prospect of working with the beauty queen, the country's first Miss Universe title-holder in more than four decades. 

Vice Ganda name-dropped Star Cinema head Malou Santos and director Olivia Lamasan, often referred to as "Inang" by her peers and whom Wurtzbach met with last week, during the interview. 

Following her reign, Wurtzbach has expressed her plans to return to acting. 

According to Vice Ganda, Kapamilya star Daniel Padilla will also be part of the currently untitled movie. He did not share any other details other than it will be released sometime this year.
