Piolo Pascual Leaves Kimmy Dora: The Quantum of Kiyeme, Sam Milby Takes Over

Piolo Pascual has left his role in the 2013 MMFF (Metro Manila Film Festival) entry "Kimmy Dora: The Quantum of Kiyeme" who was supposed to be co-starred by Eugene Domingo. However, the good news is Sam Milby is taking his place. 

The Quantum of Kiyeme is the official title for Eugene Domingo's next installment of the Kimmy Dora empire and this will serve as the prequel to the first two films which were also topbilled by Domingo with actors Dingdong Dantes and Zanjoe Marudo. Originally the Kimmy Dora 3 or the Quantum of Kiyeme was supposed to be with Piolo Pascual as the leading man but due to scheduling conflict with Pascual's as he is currently busy promoting his current movie with Gerard Anderson "On The Job" not to mention another movie he is doing with Toni Gonzaga.

"He can't do the movie anymore because of his schedule kasi may ginagawa rin siyang mga pelikula ngayon. So meron kaming mga kailangang habuling schedule at hindi na siya nagma-match, so nag-decide naman kami to allow him not to do it na rin," Erickson Raymundo, one of the producers of the movie, told ABS-CBN news. 

Sam Milby, however feels excited and pressured at the same time after he was chosen as the replacement for Pascual's role and to be Eugene's co-lead star in the third movie. "Syempre excited ako at kinakabahan. Exciting at medyo nakakatakot din. May kaba, but of course this is a... syempre 'yung success ng first two, nakakatulong talaga yun." Sam told ABS-CBN on a report on its website.

Kimmy Dora: The Quantum pf Kiyeme, along with other 7 official entries to the 39th Metro Manila Film Festival is scheduled to open on December 25, 2013.
