The IdeaFirst Company together with VIVA Films bring together Sam Milby, Yassi Pressman, Alonzo Muhlach, Sam Pinto and Candy Pangilinan in the romantic comedy (single) Filipino audiences will relate to, Ang Pambansang Third Wheel.
The film is written and directed by Ivan Andrew Payawal, also the director of 2015 Cinema One Originals’ The Comeback starring Kaye Abad and 2016 Cinemalaya Film Festival’s I America starring Bela Padilla.
Third Wheel – One who deters the socialization of a couple, perhaps when being invited out of pitty or through a feeling of duty. This person may be eased into the situation by being allowed to stay in an envirnment he or she has become accustomed to (perhaps a kitchen, where the third wheel can bake cookies for the couple.) The third wheel may feel uncomfortable about watching the couple canoodle on his her her sofa, but none of this is taken into consideration.
Yassi Pressman most likely will play the “pambansang third wheel” in the film with Sam Milby and Sam Pinto being the couple.
No details yet on its release date but it will definitely be released later this year.
