Bob Ong’s ‘ABNKKBSNPLAko’ soon in theaters
Fans of Bob Ong will soon have a chance to see the writer’s popular “ABNKKBSNPLAko” come alive on the big screen.
Viva Films announced in a recent press conference that a film project based on the popular novel is already in the works with veteran Mark Meilly on the helm.
Viva is aiming to release the film in January. The film will star multi-awarded actor Jericho Rosales.
To follow “ABNKKBSNPLAko” on the big screen is another Ong bestseller, “Lumayo Ka Nga sa Akin,” which ironically satirizes Philippine Cinema.
“Lumayo Ka Nga sa Akin” will be directed by Wenn Deramas and will star Maricel Soriano.
Yet another book that Viva is aiming to bring to life on the big screen is geek favorite “Diary Ng Panget” by little known author HaveYouSeenThisGirL.
“Diary Ng Panget” first appeared last year on Wattpad, an online community where unpublished writers are able to post articles, stories, and poems. It went on to gain enough following that it was actually released this year as a four-book series.
The adaptation is set to star Matteo Guidicelli and James Reid as with two other as yet to be identified female actors.
