James Reid to star as popular komiks character on TV

by | Entertainment

The Kapamilya actor rose up to the challenge to fight Philippine’s scariest creatures on the big screen.

Viva Films confirmed that a film adaptation is on the works for the popular komiks character Pedro Penduko created by Francisco Coching, the “king of komiks”, and James Reid was chosen to play the re-imagined version of the well-loved Pinoy superhero.

In the original komiks, Pedro Penduko was an ordinary Filipino who fights off evil creatures with the help of his magical amulet.

In this version, the actor will take on the role of Peter Harris, a Filipino raised in the United States by his adoptive father.

“Peter Harris feels like he doesn’t belong. A Filipino who lived all his life in the US where he grew up being bullied since grade school. Now 20 years old, he has had enough and wants to escape.” his origin story was revealed during History Con 2017’s opening day at the World Trade Center.

The modern take on the Pinoy superhero is said to revitalize the dated character and target a new generation of Filipinos.
