Although Coco Martin has signed a four-picture contract with Star Cinema, he said that he has no intention of giving up doing indie movies. “Dun ako nagsimula tsaka never kong tatalikuran ‘yung pinanggalingan ko,” he explained. He also revealed that he is already slated to start working on a new indie film while he is currently shooting for the Star Cinema movie Sa ‘Yo Lamang.
In comparison to indie movies, Coco said that since there is enough money in mainstream movies to take care of all the needs of actors and staff. “Dito sa mainstream sobrang relax, eh siyempre well-budgeted. Nandyan na lahat ang kailangan mo,” he admitted.
Sa ‘Yo Lamang is Coco’s first mainstream movie, which also stars Bea Alonzo, Christopher de Leon, Lorna Tolentino, Erich Gonzales, Enchong Dee, and Shaina Magdayao. “Isa kaming pamilya tapos ate ko si Bea. Ako ‘yung sumunod na anak, pangatlo si Enchong. Kuwento ng isang pamilya na nasira na pilit na binubuo,” Coco revealed.
He also talked about the movie projects he is slated to do. “[Pagkatapos] nung Sa ‘Yo Lamang tapos ‘yung Dalaw kasama ko dito si Ms. Kris Aquino, si Diether Ocampo at si Mariel Rodriguez, directed by Jerry Lopez-Sineneng. Tapos excited ako dun sa movie namin ni John Lloyd (Cruz) kung sakaling matuloy.”
