It looks like Jerrold Tarog is fed up with movies relating to our history, taking to Twitter to respond to a fan eager to learn more.
When asked if he still wanted to make the much talked about film about national hero Apolinario Mabini, he replied: “I can’t speak for the future of myself, but the past / present seems to me. very finished with the historical films after the trilogy. “
He added in parentheses, “if we can finish it.”
The trilogy references “Heneral Luna”, “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral” and “Quezon”, which has yet to be filmed.
Produced by TBA Films, “Heneral Luna” was a big box office hit, earning P 256 million when it was released in 2015.
“Goyo: Ang Batang Henral”, which opened in 2018, generated some 120 million pesos in ticket sales.
“Quezon”, based on the life of former president Manuel L. Quezon, was delayed after Tarog was hired by ABS-CBN’s Star Cinema to direct the problematic “Darna”, which has since been shelved .
