"ISKUL BUKOL : 20 Years After" : The Return of the Escalera Brothers!!!
too many terms in the Senate for Tito,
too many younger girlfriends for Vic,
too many corny donut commercials for Joey,
TVJ are finally back where they belong:
from the wiki:
Iskul Bukol 20 Years After
(Adventures of Vic Ungasis and the Escalera Brothers)
It was revealed by Vic Sotto during an I-Witness documentary
that he wished to do a reunion movie with the surviving cast members
of Iskul Bukol, particularly his co-hosts, Tito Sotto and Joey de Leon.
On July 2, 2008, Vic's film production company, M-ZET Films,
submitted a script written by fellow cast member Bibeth Orteza,
intended for the 2008 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF).
The entry entitled "Vic Ungasis en the Escaleras"
was immediately approved by the MMFF jurors.
The title has since been changed to
"Escalera and Ungasis: 20 Years After,"
which will chronicle the events that transpired in the two decades
since the TV series, when the Escalera brothers and Ungasis graduated
from Wanbol University.
Mely Tagasa agreed to reprise her role as Miss Tapia
and so did Anthony Roquel as Tonette Macho.
The role of Mang Temy however may be retired
as a tribute to cast member Bing Angeles
who passed away in 2001.
The movie's title was changed again to "Iskul Bukol: 20 Years After"
in order to gain strong audience recall, owing its large fanbase
of people who grew up in the '70s and '80s watching the TV show.
The film opens on Christmas Day 2008!!!
Below is the confirmed cast of the movie,
which is already touted as the biggest movie of TVJ:
