Jerome Ponce might be included in the cast of the second installment of "Maid in Malacañang."
Many believe this to be a done deal based simply on Darryl Yap's recent social media post.
Posting a photo of Jerome, he wrote, "#MoM Flashback • Young Yellow."
Netizens were quick to assume the post a declaration that Jerome will be playing the role of the young Ninoy Aquino in the second installment of the controversial film.
Jerome trended on social media recently after he was spotted watching "Maid In Malacañang."
Note he is the star of competing film "Katips."
A few days ago, Darryl revealed that “Maid in Malacañang” is supposed to be a trilogy.
He shared: “Nung kino-conceive ang ‘Maid in Malacañang,’ it’s actually a ‘MiM,’ ‘MoM,’ and ‘MaM.’ It’s a trilogy. ‘MiM’ is ‘Maid in Malacañang.’ ‘MoM’ is a ‘Martyr Or Murderer.’ That ‘Martyr Or Murderer,’ sino ang pumatay sa unang dilawan. And yung ‘MaM,’ ‘Mabuhay aloha Mabuhay.’ It will tackle naman the life of Marcoses away from the Philippines; in Hawaii and when they get back again in the Philippines.”
Darryl expounded on the plot of the second movie in an interview with Coach Jarret.
“It’s the greatest bintang to the Marcoses that they had then Senator Ninoy (Aquino) killed," he said. "It’s one of the heaviest accusations that they ever received – that they have killed Ninoy Aquino that time."
“And I want to present why the people should believe them that it’s not them. I will start by asking about the film, if your father died, if your husband died, there should be a fire within you to solve it, as a good son and a good wife," he added. “So why is it until now, that the mother or the wife, is now gone, the son is also gone, the justice for the father is not yet given?"
“That’s one of the pillars of the second installment if we will do it. If the actor that I will post on Facebook will say yes to be Ninoy.”
