ER Ejercito, the Laguna governor is grateful to Robin Padilla for voluntarily withdrawing his film, ‘Mr. Wong’ in the 2011 Metro Manila Film Festival.
This means Ejercito’s movie, ‘Manila Kingpin: The Untold Story of Asiong Salonga’ will then be one of the entries in the Metro Manila Film Festival.
MMFF will be held during the Christmas holidays where only Filipino films are shown for around two weeks.
Ejercito will also reimburse the P500,000 Padilla paid as performance bond for his film, ‘Mr. Wong’.
