Inigo Pascual and Maris Racal are reuniting on the big screen amid breakup rumors! Their movie 'm Ellenya L was recently announced as an official entry to this year's Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino or PPP.
The Boy 2 Quizon-directed film stars Maris as Ellenya, a typical millennial whose life revolves around social media, seeking validation from the online society. With the help of Peng (portrayed by Inigo), she created a different persona in hopes of becoming a famous influencer and vlogger. Will Ellenya earn online fame or will she be an epic fail?
The former MYX VJ last appeared on the big screen in the 2016 comedy film Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2: Forever is Not Enough, and has since focused on his music career. At present, Inigo is attempting to make his mark in the global music scene with his first internationally-released single "Options."
Meanwhile, Maris recently released her Rico Blanco-assisted single "Abot Langit." She is also part of the upcoming zombie flick Block Z starring Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia.
Aside from I'm Ellenya L, nine other films will be showcased in the PPP which is set to run from September 13 to 19. These are: Cuddle Weather (Sue Ramirez and RK Bagatsing); LSS (Gabbi Garcia and Khalil Ramos); The Panti Sisters (Paolo Ballesteros, Christian Bables, and Martin del Rosario); G! (Mccoy de Leon, Jameson Blake, Paulo Angeles, and Mark Oblea); Open (JC Santos and Arci Munoz); Watch Me Kill (Jean Garcia and Jay Manalo); Circa (Anita Linda); Lola Igna (Yves Flores, Meryll Soriano, and Ma. Isabel Lopez); and Pagbalik (Gloria Sevilla, Suzette Ranillo, and Vince Ranillo).
