Nicole, who is half-Filipina, earlier said that she will love to do a movie with Pacquiao because he inspired her. Nicole and her group The Pussycat Dolls held a one-night concert here in Manila last June 11. In her interview, she revealed about the possible team-up with Pacquiao in a movie and volunteered to sing the Philippine National Anthem in Pacman’s upcoming bouts.
Wilson Tieng announced on Tuesday that Nicole Scherzinger finally agreed to do a movie with Manny Pacquiao. Filipino-Greek wrestler Dave Batista is also being tapped to appear in the movie which is set to be an entry at the Metro Manila Film Festival.
Manny Pacquiao will play a superhero in the said movie and Nicole will be her leading lady. The working title of the film is “Whapakman” with Tieng as producer and Topel Lee as director.
Manny Pacquiao‘s first film at the Metro Manila Film Festival was “Anak ng Kumander” last 2007. The movie was a flop earning only P2,457,113.00 at the box-office. The top-grosser at that time was Sakal Sakali, Saklolo with a haul of P122,893,166.
