Sean Ellis interview about Metro Manila

11 September 2013 6:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

John Arcilla and Jake Macapagal as Ong and Oscar in Sean Ellis' Metro Manila Metro Manila director Sean Ellis (Cashback, The Brøken) is just the latest British filmmaker to try his luck in a foreign language, with Gareth Evans' Indonesian set and scripted The Raid already set for an English language remake by Sony subsidiary Screen Gems. Now Ellis's drama/heist hybrid - co-scripted with Frank E Flowers - about a Oscar (Jake Macapagal) and his family, who migrate to Manila for work and find themselves preyed upon at every turn, is set for not just one but, possibly, several reworkings by Fox.

Speaking to him ahead of Metro Manila's release in the UK on September 20, the Brighton-born filmmaker said: "I think it's a great thing and Fox International has obviously seen potential in the remake and I can understand that because it's obviously a very universal story. »
