According to Vice Ganda, the idea for the movie actually came from Martin, who was recently seen in the box office hit “Feng Shui.”

    “Isang araw tumawag ‘yan sa akin na may naisip siyang concept para sa aming dalawa. Tapos kinwento niya. Sabi ko, ang ganda. Nagustuhan ko agad. So sabi ko itawag mo na agad sa Star (Cinema). Nag-present siya na siya lang, kinwento niya ang concept na naisip niya. In-approve right there and then at ni-request ko na ‘yan ang una kong pelikula sa 2015 at pumyag naman sila,” narrated the star of “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin,” the highest-earning entry to the recently concluded Metro Manila Film Festival.

    Martin described the movie as a “spoof” on their real-life friendship. “Kumbaga ‘yung mga tao na hindi nakakakilala sa aming dalawa, kung paano kami naging magkaibigan, dito nila kami makikilala,” Martin said.

    As early as now, Vice Ganda is optimistic that their movie will become another  box office hit.

    “Alam ko na ang ugali niyan. Hindi naman na ako mangangapa sa kanya kaya lang first time kami na kami ang gagawa ng pelikula dalawa. Hindi ko lang alam ang magiging challenge noon pero alam ko lang magiging masaya ito at kini-claim ko na magiging successful ito,” he said.

    “Itong movie na ito napaka-espesyal kasi ‘yung collaboration ay nanggaling sa amin,” Martin added.

    The still-untitled movie is slated for nationwide release in mid-2015.
