MANILA, Philippines – Hot on the heels of his successful rom-com with Alessandra De Rossi, Empoy Marquez is slated to star in a new movie with none other than sexy actress Ellen Adarna.

“Hanggang ngayon po ang movie ay nire-revise pa po, abangan na lang po,” he told ABS-CBN.

[Until now the movie is being revised, please stay tuned.]

While the ‘Kita Kita’ star would not divulge further details, he did express his thankfulness for his big break amid the signing of a new contract with Star Cinema.

“Sobrang blessed po ang nararamdanan ko ngayon. Nagpapasalamat ako kay God kasi sa Kanya galing po lahat ito. Iko-continue ko lang ang nasimulan ni Tito Dolphy na magpasaya ng mga tao,” he said.

[I feel so blessed now. I thank God because everything came from him. I’ll just continue what Tito Dolphy started, to make people happy.]

Aside from Adarna, Marquez said he is also looking forward to work with other big names in the industry —including Vice Ganda, Vhong Navarro, Joey de Leon, and Vic Sotto.

Out of the bunch, it is Vice he looks forward to working with the most as he feels he could learn a lot from him.

“Vice Ganda po, kasi matalino siya, alam niya lahat kung ano gagawin,” he said. “Mabilis pumick-up si Vice, siguradong masarap siyang katrabaho at marami akong matututunan sa kanya.”

[Vice Ganda, because he’s smart, he knows what to do in everything. Vice pick-ups quickly, for sure he’d be fun to work with and I would learn a lot from him.]
