Dan Villegas on Adapting Juan Miguel Severo’s ‘Hintayan ng Langit’

It’s not easy to adapt theatrical plays especially for a movie with a budget of a film festival here in the Philippines. But if Dan Villegas got to do it with Changing Partners, then he can also do it in Hintayan ng Langit. And both came out great!

But how was the process of adapting Juan Miguel Severo’s one-act play for the big screen? Watch our video coverage of ‘Hintayan ng Langit’s wide release media conference below to find out:

“’Yung first draft kasi ng script, sobrang dikit niya sa play, as in isang kwarto lang siya. Si Tonette (Antoinette Jadaone), siya nag-suggest ng changes ng pagtawid ‘nung play kasi kailangan mong lakihan ‘yung mundo eh, pero lakihan with keeping the budget in mind.”

‘Hintayan ng Langit’ opens in cinemas nationwide November 21 from QCinema, Globe Studios and Project 8 Corner San Joaquin Projects.
