Aga Muhlach open to a ‘Bagets’ homecoming movie
MANILA, Philippines — It’s been decades since the teenybopper film “Bagets” hit theaters. And 36 years down the line, is Aga Muhlach still game to do the reunion movie with the whole gang?
During Viva5 sa TV5’s media conference on Tuesday, Muhlach said talks about the homecoming film first floated after he and Eula Valdes reunited for an adult milk ad.
“I just hope it happens. But sabi ko, before pa pinag-usapan na namin a long time ago. Sabi namin if it’s not gonna be as nice as ‘Bagets’, parang we would rather not do it,” Muhlach explained.
(I just hope it happens. But I said, we’ve been talking about this a long time ago. We said if it’s not gonna be as nice as ‘Bagets’, then we would rather not do it.)
“Parang (So) if we’re gonna do a reunion movie, it has to be as big as that or as memorable as that. If not, let’s just leave it at that,” he added.
Nevertheless, he said he has not closed the door on making a movie with the entire “Bagets” cast.
“But of course, I would love to do a movie with the whole cast,” he said.
He then teased Viva and it’s big boss, Vic Del Rosario: “So Viva, calling Viva Viva. Boss Vic, partner, gawa na tayo ng script, magandang-maganda pwede natin gawin ‘yan (Boss Vic, let’s work on a script, we can write a nice script.)”
Aside from Muhlach and Valdes, “Bagets” also starred Herbert Bautista, Raymond Lauchengco, Yayo Aguila, William Martinez, and J.C Bonnin, among others.
“Bagets”, a Maryo J. de los Reyes film, was released in 1984 and ushered the era of youth-oriented movies in Philippine cinema.
Meanwhile, Muhlach is set to be a judge in the upcoming show “Masked Singer Philippines,” which will premiere on Oct. 24 on TV5.
