“No, I definitely don’t want to be directed by Darryl Yap. I don’t want to work with him,” sabi ni Labajo.

“We all have the freedom when it comes to making art but I am not really sure if I have a positive opinion when it comes to changing history,” dagdag pa niya.

Samantala, viral ngayon naman ang open letter ng isang British national na si Malcolm Conlan patungkol sa naging pahayag ni Labajo.

Ayon kay Conlan, masyado raw assuming si Labajo na gusto rin siyang makatrabaho ng direktor. tanong niya, “how do you know that Direk Darryl would want to work with you?”

Dagdag pa ni Conlan, maraming artista ang gustong makatrabaho si Direk Darryl dahil napakagaling nito.

“The way I see it is that Direk Darryl is a much loved, relevant director and awesome story teller as well as genius writer.”

Ang ‘Maid in MalacaƱang’ at ‘Martyr or Murderer’ ay mga pelikula umanong magbabahagi ng ‘other side of the story.’

Basahin ang buong open letter sa ibaba:

“An Open letter to Juan Karlos ‘JK’ Labaho,

Dear Sir Juan,

I hope you don’t mind me writing to you personally sir, even though I don’t know you, nor have I even heard of you, but I understand you are in the upcoming movie ‘Ako Si Ninoy’. 

You have apparently made a statement ‘No, I definitely don’t want to be directed by Darryl Yap, I don’t want to work with him’. 

Well sir, how do you know that Direk Darryl would want to work with you? With the greatest respect dear sir, isn’t your statement and attitude a little pretentious and assuming?

I am sure there are many actors in the Philippines right now who would relish the chance to be directed by such an influential and relevant director, this is clearly the case judging by the stellar cast of actors in his most recent works. 

The way I see it is that Direk Darryl is a much loved, relevant director and awesome story teller as well as genius writer. His work on these latest films, ‘Maid in Malacanang’ and ‘Martyr or Murderer’ are an attempt to tell the other side of the story. The story of the Marcos family which has been untold for close to four decades. 

Have you ever heard the phrase, ‘There are two sides to every story?’  

Well I believe that the work of Direk Darryl has just as much right to be heard as the movie which you are in too!!!! 

Well, good luck with your film sir, I hope it does well, I am sure you passionately believe in it, just as much as so many Filipinos and even foreigners like myself believe in the work of Direk Darryl Yap!!!
Maraming Salamat po sir,

Humbly yours,
Malcolm Conlan,
