MANILA -- After years of trying to convince Regal Films matriarch Lily Monteverde to turn her life story into a movie, it is finally happening.

Film director Erik Matti took to social media to announce that they have started working on a movie about the life story of Mother Lily.

"Dondon Monteverde and I have been courting Mother Lily about this project for quite a few years now. We’ve gathered so much research about this over the years by just being with Mother at parties, dinners and parties and dinners. But there’s still so much to mine from this story. It is epic and very personal," Matti wrote on Facebook.


Aside from interviewing Mother Lily, Matti said they will also interview everyone she has worked with or have been part of Regal Entertainment. It will be written by Moira Lang and Michiko Yamamoto.

"This. I. Am. So. Excited!" Matti added.

Regal also shared the good news on its official Facebook page.
