Ryan Agoncillo reinvents himself in ‘Pieta’
As soon as he returns from shooting Pinoy Fear Factor in Argentina, Ryan Agoncillo will immediately start working on his new teleserye Pieta. The TV host/actor/model will reinvent himself into a brusque action star, far different from the nice and clean image he has been known for. He will also be starring opposite award-winning actress Cherie Gil who will play his mother.
Known for hosting shows like Talk TV, The Explorer, and Y Speak, Ryan first ventured into acting in the superserye Krystala as leading man to Judy Ann Santos. His relationship with the drama princess eventually blossomed into a true-life romance that led to their engagement last May. Their tandem has proven a hit with audiences, as seen in the box office success of their movie Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo and its sequel Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo, and as well as on the small screen in the teleserye Ysabella.
Pieta was originally a 1983 movie by Direk Carlo J Caparas which featured the late Ace Vergel in the lead role. The film spawned a sequel in the following year, Pieta: Ikalawang Aklat, starring Bong Revilla Jr. Pieta follows the story of a mother’s enduring love for her son who is beset with pain and revenge. Ryan will portray Rigor, a young man who grew up in the slums with only his mother by his side. Having witnessed chaos and violence all throughout his childhood, Rigor will learn to adapt to the rules of his tough environment. He will find himself inside a crime organization where he will come face-to-face with the man who holds the key to his dark past.
Ryan is set to immerse himself in an intensive acting workshop with top-notch director and acting coach Laurice Guillen. Ryan will also be taking martial arts training and doing workouts to get into shape for his character Rigor. Pieta will be directed by action-film director Toto Natividad who helmed past teleseryes Panday and Palos.
