Lovi Poe on Starring in FPJ’s Batang Quiapo: “This One’s for You, Papa”

Coco Martin will be back on primetime TV with another one of Fernando Poe Jr’s classics. This time, he will be paired with Da King’s daughter herself, Lovi Poe.

The news came shortly after the end of “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano”. Apparently, the latest FPJ movie adaptation is coming this 2023, as announced by Dreamscape Entertainment on Monday, December 5. In line with this, Lovi shared her thoughts on starring in one of her father’s projects.

“Couldn’t think of a better team to work with on my first FPJ project,” she said in a post along with photos of Batang Quiapo‘s cast and crew who are very excited to work on the upcoming teleserye. The Supreme Actress promised, “Ibibigay namin ang lahat ng aming makakaya para sa lahat ng patuloy na tumatangkilik sa nagiisang Da King.”

“This one’s for you, Papa,” she concluded.
