Vice Ganda is stoked.

The top TV host and comedy actor is raring to do something he missed for the past two years due to the pandemic — shooting a movie for the Metro Manila Film Festival.

His last MMFF appearance was 2019’s The Mall, The Merrier.

Punong-puno ako ng excitement, anticipation. Masaya lang ako. Masaya akong gagawin ito. Buong-buo ’yung loob ko. Handa ako. Nag-aabang na talaga ako ng araw na magsisimula kami,” the ABS-CBN talent said in a recent media conference for the movie Partners in Crime.

Hinahanap na rin kasi ng katawan ko, ng sistema ko. Dati ang assignment ko patawanin ’yung mga pamilya ’pag Pasko. Ngayon, ang assignment ko naman ay ‘yung pabalikin sila sa sinehan,” he said.

Produced by Star Cinema, Partners in Crime is about an ex-couple, some unsettled issues, and an illegal activity.

For his MMFF comeback movie, Vice is co-starring with Ivana Alawi, with Cathy Garcia Molina directing.

Molina helmed two of the country’s highest-grossing movies of all time, Hello, Love, Goodbye, and The Hows of Us.

“Excited talaga ako to be ‘Cathy-fied.’ I expect and I willingly embrace yung may ‘Cathyfication’ — the ‘Cathyfication’ of Vice Ganda this Christmas,” Vice said.

Bago pa maging huli ang lahat, ma-experience na namin ni Ivana si Direk Cathy. Ayoko naman matapos ang career ko, tomorrow is never promised. Hindi natin alam ang mga magaganap…”

Ivana, meanwhile, said she and her family have been Vice Ganda fans for a long time, and she’s honored to be working with him in a movie.

“I really love Ate Vice kahit ’yung mama ko sa vlog kung napanood niyo. Mahal na mahal namin siya. Sa kaniya kami tawang-tawa. Nalilimutan namin ang mga problema. Mga 20 to 21 (years old) pa ko ’nun, lasinggera days ko,” Ivana said.
