Arnel Pineda reveals biopic in the works

MANILA, Philippines -- After the acclaimed documentary "Don’t Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey," Arnel Pineda, the Filipino frontman of the American rock band Journey, wants a full-length movie about his life. "Gusto kong magawa siya as pelikula hindi lang documentary. Kasi may docu na. 'Yung gaganap, nahihirapan kami kasi puro gwapo artista natin. Gusto ko as realistic as possible 'yung actor, 'yung kuha talaga ang mukha ko. ...We will sit on it and think about it," he said. Pineda revealed that investors have already expressed interest in producing the biopic. "Mayroong dalawang investors na willing to do it. It will be released internationally kaya sana ay matuloy. I am crossing my fingers," he said. Pineda also said he would like to see sexy actress Cristine Reyes play his wife in the movie. "Kailangan chinita na maganda. Siguro Cristine Reyes medyo kahawig ng wife ko," he said. Asked if his Journey bandmates will be part of the movie, Pineda said: "Hopefully mag-join sila kasi it will be meaningful to the movie kung sasali sila, especially Neal Schon kasi he is a very big part of the phenomenon. Kasi kung wala siya, wala ako sa Journey." Last January, the documentary "Don’t Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey" received the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 24th Palm Springs International Film Festival. Open to acting In the interview, Pineda also admitted that he is open to do acting projects. "Pumapasok sa isip ko kaya lang hindi ko alam kung saang kategorya ako mapupunta. Pero I would like to try po, paunti-unti po. Siguro kailangang mag-crash course muna ako doon. Mas gusto ko heavy, ma-drama or action drama, 'yung character actor talaga," he said. Asked of his idols when it comes to acting, Pineda said: "Dito sa local, sila Christopher de Leon, si Jhong Hilario, I like his depth. Si Coco Martin, lalo na 'yung indie movies niya. Marami pa, si Piolo (Pascual) lalo na 'yung role niya sa 'Dekada (70s)'. Super dami at si Jericho (Rosales) sa role niya sa 'Baler.'" If given a chance, he said he would like to have Anne Curtis or Dawn Zulueta as his leading lady.
