Richard Gomez, Albert Martinez and Gabby Concepcion topbill Iglesia Ni Cristo movie "Ang Sugo (The Last Messenger)"

Richard Gomez was chosen to portray the role of  Iglesia Ni Cristo's first Executive Minister Felix Manalo in the upcoming historic movie "Ang Sugo (The Last Messenger)".

The movie which will feature the three generations of INC leadership beginning from the time it was founded in 1914, will also star Albert Martinez (the late Eraño Manalo who took leadership of the INC in the 1950s after Felix Manalo) and Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla, Jr. (Eduardo Manalo, the current Executive Minister of INC).

UPDATE: Bong Revilla backs out of Iglesia Ni Cristo Centennial movie 

Completing the cast are Snooky Serna, Dawn Zulueta, Gladys Reyes and Congresswoman Lani Mercado.

"It’s really a privilege to be chosen as Ka Felix Manalo. Happy ako at excited na gampanan yung role. This is historical. Pinapakita dito kung paano nagsimula ang Iglesia ni Cristo. Ipapakita dito 'yung generations na dumaan pagkatapos ni Felix Manalo," Goma said during the presscon held at he Quezon City Sports Club on Tuesday, November 27.

Senator Bong, meanwhile, hopes he could give justice on the role. "Hindi na Bong Revilla the action star ang makikita niyo. For the first time, kumbaga isang ka-Eduardo ang makikita nila sa 'Sugo.' Pag-aaralan natin 'yung galaw niya, pananalita niya, mannerisms niya. Malaking hamon ito."

While Albert cannot contained his happiness being chosen to play the most important role he could ever portray in his showbiz career.

"Kaya kailangan talaga in detail, pag-aaralan ko, the person, the man, the dream, the passion, lahat ng iyon. Kailangan ko rin malaman how he addressed his followers, at kailangan ko rin ma-imbibe kung ano ang nararamdaman niya when he does that. It doesn't happen everyday. 'Yung happiness ko as an actor, hindi ko ma-explain. It's something na hindi ko ma-imagine, but I'm really, really honored. I'm finally in the stage of my career na nakagawa ako ng ganitong klaseng pelikula."

Directed by Tikoy Aguiluz and written by Arlyn dela Cruz, "Ang Sugo (The Last Messenger)" will hit theaters in July 2014.
