Inspired to make ‘good’ films

August 27, 2020

Sometime in December last year, I met two California-based film producers — John Lee and Francis Ho — who talked about making four big movies starring an international cast including Filipino actor Cesar Montano and boxing champion Manny Pacquiao.

Montano had his first taste of international moviemaking in director John Dahl’s war film, The Great Raid, which was about the famous raid by US Army Rangers and Philippine guerillas who attacked the prisoner of war camp in Cabanatuan to rescue more than 500 Americans.
