The Journey of ‘Hintayan ng Langit’ from Play to Film

First featured as a stage play in 2015 and 2016, now, Juan Miguel Severo’s ‘Hintayan ng Langit’ is a full-length film starring veteran actors Eddie Garcia and Gina Pareño.

But what was the story behind the film’s journey from stage to screen? Watch our video coverage from the Hintayan ng Langit bloggers’ conference:

So it started when directors Dan Villegas and Antoinette Jadaone loved the one-act play during its first week run back in 2015. Cut to years after when Dan Villegas worked with Juan Miguel Severo in the afternoon soap opera ‘Ikaw Lang ang Iibigin.’

It was love for the material that triggered the two to make the actual screenplay and send it to QCinema.

The film stars Eddie Garcia, Gina Pareño, Joel Sarracho, Kat Galang, Mary Joy Apostol and Jomari Angeles.

‘Hintayan ng Langit’ is now showing in cinemas nationwide from Globe Studios, QCinema and Project 8 Corner San Joaquin.
