Ang Sikreto ng Piso Launched

“Ang Sikreto ng Piso” (The Secret of the Philippine Peso Coin) is a family-oriented comedy and historical film inspired by actual events on the smuggle of the Philippine peso coin in 2006.   

The film is a wholesome, charming, and interesting story for the  Filipino family during Christmas season, and thus, it is humbly intended for submission to the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival.    

The main plot is about love of family and supporting one another whenever trials in life happen.  

“Ang Sikreto Ng Piso” is written and directed by stage, TV and film actor-turned-director Perry Escaño, who is also one of the nine finalists of the main competition of full-length films for the 13th Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival for his “Ang Guro Kong Di Marunong Magbasa.”    

Topbilled by Quezon City Congressman and actor Alfred Vargas (fresh from the success of Encantadia of GMA), the film is Alfred’s second collaboration with Direk Perry since the former is also the lead actor of the said Cinemalaya action-drama entry, slated this August 2017. 

With major roles in the film are multi-talented ace comedian Joey Marquez (regular cast of My Dear Heart of ABS-CBN), the still debonair  and handsome Wendell Ramos, and the cute child actor and Downy commercial model Yuan Francisco.  

Also in the cast are funny comedians Paul Sy (mainstay of Home Sweetie Home of ABS-CBN as John Lloyd Cruz’s buddy, and a winner of Showtime’s “Look A Like” as Wally Walley), Long Mejia (a regular cast of FPJ’s “Ang Probinsiyano” of ABS-CBN), Beverly Salviejo (a veteran comedienne and singer).  

Then there’s Lou Velsoso (versatile and award-winning actor), Andoy Ranay (stage, television, and theater actor and director), Ernie Garcia (a seasoned actor who has done more than 50 films and is also the Supervising Producer of “Ang Sikreto ng Piso”), and more.  

The production is also aiming for McCoy de Leon as Alfred’s brother in the story, and Elisse Joson as the beautiful daughter of Joey in the film.  

As of press time, the production team is now negotiating with awardwinning actress Judy Ann Santos for the role of the wife of Ronnie (Alfred) in the story.   

“Ang Sikreto Ng Piso” is produced by MPJ Entertainment Productions and JPP Entertainment, owned by beauty queen and fashion designer Joyce Peña Pilarsky, who also portrays Joey’s strict wife in the movie.  

To start filming this July, other cast members of the movie include Dexter Doria, Garry Lim, Joanna Marie Tan, and Akihiro Blanco.   

Ang Sikreto ng Piso Synopsis

In order to build wealth effectively, we have to watch out on our spending.  Ronnie (Alfred Vargas) has to make sacrifices to save up for the future of his wife (to be announced) and only son Taballero (Yuan Francisco).   

Ronnie is forced to accept an odd job that promises higher income -- one that requires him to gather as much one-peso coins has he could.  

It is only a matter of time when he discovers why these coins are being smuggled abroad.  What secrets do these coins hold?  Can these coins help Ronnie save the life of his son who lies in agony in the hospital?  

Akihiro Blanco is one of the cast  of Ang Sikreto ng Piso who recently done the film Jose Bartolome, Guro and Happy Breakup The Movie. Akihiro is now a regal baby and intended to do several films in this film outfit in the near future.

Kelvin Miranda is an upcoming artist who's also one of the cast of Ang Sikreto ng Piso. He recently joined the GMA artist center and signed a 12 picture movie contract to Regal Films.
