MANILA—Viva Films on Friday released the official poster of the local remake of the South Korean drama film “Miracle in Cell No. 7.”
Released a month before its Christmas Day premiere as part of the Metro Manila Film Festival, the poster shows lead stars Aga Muhlach and Xia Vigor at the center, with portraits of the cast members surrounding them.
As in the 2013 original, the adaptation centers on a mentally challenged man who is wrongfully imprisoned for murder. He forms friendships with his fellow inmates, who then connive to have him reunite with his daughter.
In the Nuel Naval-helmed remake, Muhlach plays Lito, the father, while Vigor portrays his daughter, Yesha. The cast includes Joel Torre, JC Santos, Mon Confiado, Jojit Lorenzo, Soliman Cruz, Joel Torre, Bela Padilla, and Tirso Cruz III.
A teaser for “Miracle in Cell No. 7” released early this month showed glimpses of the events leading up to Lito’s incarceration, as well as Yesha sneaking into his cell with the help of his newfound friends.
