Aga Muhlach will be working with child star Xia Vigor in the Filipino adaptation of the hit Korean movie Miracle in Cell No. 7. The movie is one of the official entries in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
On Instagram, Muhlach shared a photo of himself with the 10-year-old star, referring to her as his “leading lady.”
“Me and my leading lady! Xia Vigor! Sobrang cute! Grabe! She plays my daughter in the movie ‘Miracle in Cell no. 7.’ Excited to announce the many great actors I’ll be working with in this movie. Soon!”
In Miracle in Cell No. 7, Vigor will play the younger version of Bela Padilla’s character. Miracle in Cell No. 7 is a multi-awarded Korean drama-comedy film that was released in 2013. It follows the story of Yong-gu, a mentally challenged single father who was wrongly imprisoned for the murder of a young girl. The remake was named one of the official entries for the annual movie festival later in December.
Bela Padilla doesn’t mind being the second choice after Nadine Lustre.
