The Francis Villacorta-directed film adaptation of the life of the Visayan saint, "San Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir" got a new movie poster released featuring Rocco Nacino as the titular character. This movie is an official entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival 2013 which starts on Christmas day. Hit the jump for the full poster and additional details.
The project was originaly set for JM De Guzman as Pedro Calungsod but due to personal/health reasons, he had to withdraw from the film. Director Francis Villacorta and the staff were condering actors like Coco Martin, Paolo Avelino and others as the next replacement for the role, and then eventually Rocco Nacino was the chosen one to put on the character of the Filipino saint from Cebu who was just proclaimed saint by the Catholic church in 2012.
