After James Reid had to drop out of his Pedro Penduko film due to a medical condition that declares him unfit to push through with the project, rumor has it that Matteo Guidicelli is being eyed to be his replacement.
Although he has undergone military training making him fit enough to take on the role in the action-packed film, he said that he would still have to go through proper training.
“I’ll be very, very happy to portray Pedro Penduko pero siyempre kailangan pa din ng training dahil iba ‘yung characteristics na meron si Pedro Penduko,” he said. He also mentioned that he would feel honored to represent Filipino martial arts in the movie if given the chance.
“We’re going through different meetings pa, let’s see for the confirmation. If ever, that would be good project and a big blessing,” he added.
