CEBU, Philippines — Vice Ganda is set to return to the big screen after a two-year hiatus, creating excitement among fans with the announcement of her upcoming movie, “And The Breadwinner Is.”

The star’s comeback movie marks the first collaboration between Star Cinema and The IdeaFirst Company. It is also the first time for Vice Ganda to be working with award-winning director Jun Robles Lana.

“First time namin magsasama and ang saya saya ko talaga. Highlight ito ng career ko hindi lang this year, pero ng movie career ko. Isa ito sa pinakamalalaking highlights,” said Vice.

Lana expressed excitement working with Vice Ganda for the first time, promising viewers a different cinematic experience filled with comedy, drama, and heartfelt moments.

“It is everything na inaantay ng mga tao sa isang pelikula ni Vice, yung nakakatawa at riot na comedy and so much more. Kung nakita natin si Vice magpatawa, makikita rin natin siya mangurot ng mga puso,” he said.

With Lana’s directorial style combined with the “It’s Showtime” host’s comedic brilliance, Vice hopes to fulfill the dream of doing a film that will resonate with viewers long after its release.

“Nagkaroon na ako ng fair share sa box office kahit paano. Gusto ko magkaroon sa filmography ko yung inilaban sa international film festival. Dream ko ‘to. I have been praying for a movie na may internal value. Di ba meron din mga pelikula na hindi tumabo sa takilya pero has an internal value sa Philippine cinema at sa kamalayan ng mga taong nakapanood. Dumarating ang panahon na binabalikan siya dahil sa uri ng pelikula niya. I want to experience that now,” she said.

The movie’s writers, Daisy Cayanan Mijares and Jumbo Albano, shared that “And The Breadwinners Is” will relate the experiences of a family’s breadwinner and explore their joys, pains, struggles, and hopes.

Vice thanked the viewers who supported his movie career and made him the highest-grossing Filipino movie actor of all time whose movies have raked in a gross total of P4.6 billion in the box-office.

When asked who is joining the cast, Vice only revealed that “It’s Showtime” co-host Jhong Hilario will be part of the movie.
