"Agimat: Ang Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla Sr." Soon on ABS-CBN

For two years, ABS-CBN has been negotiating with the Revilla clan to buy the rights to remake four epic "Agimat" movies�namely Hulihin si Tiagong Akyat (1973), Tonyong Bayawak (1979), Ang Mahiwagang Daigdig ni Elyas Paniki (1989), and Pepeng Agimat (1973).

This 2009, the project will finally be shown in television as the Kapamilya Network's upcoming primetime show called Agimat: Ang Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla Sr.

ABS-CBN's Creative Unit Head Rondel Lindayag said that adapting the movies of the senior Revilla for the small screen is an honor for the network. It also serves as their tribute to the legendary action star who contributed a lot to the Philippine cinema.

The series will have Ramon Revilla Sr.'s grandson, Jolo Revilla, playing the title role in Pepeng Agimat. This makes him the third generation of the Revillas to play this magical character.

Viewers will also see Gerald Anderson as Tiagong Akyat, Jake Cuenca as Elyas Paniki, and Coco Martin as Tonyong Bayawak.

In preparation for their role, the three young male stars will soon visit Ramon Revilla Sr. to talk to him personally about the project.

Agimat: Ang Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla Sr. will priemere soon on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.
