Following the success of the controversial film “Maid in Malacaang,” Sen. Imee Marcos has confirmed that a sequel is in the works.
“There will definitely be a sequel, but [it’s] still being written by director Darryl Yap. Thank you for organizing the screening of ‘Maid in Malacanqang.’ You even showed it in Utrecht,” Marcos said during a trip to Europe with other senators.
“We waited more than 30 years to tell our story,” the senator continued.
The film’s producer was Marcos.
Darryl Yap directed the film, which depicted the Marcos family’s final 72 hours in Malacaang Palace in February 1986, before they were flown out of Manila to Hawaii amid the People Power revolution.
Cesar Montano portrays late President Ferdinand Marcos, Sr., Ruffa Gutierrez portrays former First Lady Imelda Marcos, Cristine Reyes portrays Imee Marcos, Diego Loyzaga portrays Bongbong Marcos, and Ella Cruz portrays Irene Araneta.
However, the film was accused of historical distortion, particularly in its depiction of late President Cory Aquino and the nuns who provided her with sanctuary.
