Xian Lim will play Isko Moreno in the biopic “Yorme.”
In his Instagram account, Xian posted a photo of him recording a song with a caption “film to be announced.”
A source confirmed the musical biopic of Isko produced by Saranggola Productions and directed by Joven Tan is the film Xian was referring to.
Isko said he’s thankful to Xian for accepting the role.
“I am thankful to him. Bagay naman sa kaniya,” the Manila Mayor said.
He added, “I think Xian can give justice to the character. I believe in him and I hope he can inspire other people through this movie.”
When asked who he wanted to play the leading lady, Isko said “I am giving the director the liberty to choose whoever he wants.”
McCoy de Leon will play the young Isko in the movie during his rise from poverty before entering the showbiz industry.
Joven previously said Isko has nothing to do with the project and it is not a campaign movie for the upcoming national elections.
