Actor John Lloyd Cruz stages his comeback to showbiz with movie “Servando Magdamag.”

Cruz, who took a year-long break from showbiz, will topbill the Lav Diaz adaptation of a short story by Ricky Lee.

“Through the years, never siyang bumitaw. Nag-pelikula na siya, nakilala, and then eventually, a couple of years ago, nilapitan niya ulit ako. ‘Ituloy na natin ‘yung Servando,” Lee said.

Lee also revealed that Diaz handpicked Cruz for the role of Servando Sais, a member of a feudal family or Spanish hacienderos.
