The Pinoy rock band Parokya Ni Edgar is a household name with tracks like One and OnlyHalaga, and Harana. You might have jammed to their songs and encountered fictional hero Mang Jose, a hero for hire who promises to save you, as long as you can pay the price. This superhero might have existed as a song since 2005, but now he's going to get his own film. Antoinette Jadaone and Dan Villegas are set to produce the upcoming flick, with Rayn Brizuela at the helm.
