Totoy Bato was supposed to be a primetime tv series but the GMA management decided to make it a movie instead. It was written by Carlo J. Caparas, the creator of Joaquin Bordado and the upcoming fantaserye “Gagamboy.”
Robin will play the title role, a tough third-class boxer. Manny Pacquiao will be his mentor.
Also starring in the movie is Bakekang star Sunshine Dizon.
