“We are under negotiations with them, Juday and McLisse. We really want to get them.” -writer and director Perry Escaño.
Metro Manila Film Festival 2017 hopeful Ang Sikreto ng Piso stars Alfred Vargas as Ronnie Biglang-Awa, a kind man and loving father who lives in a frugal way. Worries about the future of his son Taballero. He gathers Philippine peso coins for a Chinese businessman to earn extra money. Discovers the rampant smuggling of coins from the Philippines to other countries.
But what is Ang Sikreto ng Piso? Let writer and director Perry Escaño explain that to you:
But one thing that made the audience, especially the McLisse (McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson) fans notice the film on its launch was the production was interested or rather pursuing the two in demand teen stars as part of the cast.
McCoy de Leon will be playing Alfred Vargas’ brother in the story, and Elisse Joson as the beautiful daughter of Joey Marquez in the film.
Fans went wild the day after, making them want the said film to trend, and it did.
MCLISSE AngSikretoNgPiso trended fourth spot on Twitter Philippines June 28, 2017, the day after the launch.
No updates yet on whether Star Magic, McLisse’s management will agree to do the movie project.
Aside from McLisse, Ang Sikreto ng Piso also wishes to get Judy Ann Santos as Juana Biglang-Awa, the wife of Ronnie (Vargas) who owns a money changer shop.
