  • Filipino Remake of MISS GRANNY
  • by SONG Soon-jin /  Sep 10, 2018
  • Second at the Philippine Box Office Behind CRAZY RICH ASIANS

    CJ ENM’s Filipino remake of Korean hit Miss Granny (2014) has been taking the number two spot for two weeks straight since its release on August 22nd. 

    “The Filipino adaptation of Miss Granny, produced in Tagalog, was second behind American romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians at the local box office in the first week since its release on August 22.” CJ ENM said that this Filipino remake took also the second place behind Philippine romantic drama Hows of Us in its second weekend. “It has earned USD 2.45 million as of September 2nd.” 

    Unlike other CJ ENM’s international remake projects of Miss Granny in China, Vietnam, Japan, Thailand and Indonesia, this Tagalog version was made after a local production company purchased the film adaptation rights. The Philippine’s leading media entertainment Viva Films produced this remake, starring pop star princess Sarah Geronimo and singer-actor James Reid, under the direction of Joyce Bernal. 

    Meanwhile, CJ ENM is planning to extend its projects to the North American markets by producing Spanish-language and English-language versions of Miss Granny.
