JC Bernardo a.k.a. Sentenciador – proud owner of the most popular website in the world wide web (www.sabong.net.ph) devoted to cockfighting is coming out with a film with a sabong theme.
Simply titled “Sabungero”, the film stars Joel Torre, Maritoni Fernandez, Robert Arevalo, Mark Gil, Charlie Davao, Leo Martinez and child actor Timothy Mark – grandson of lady cocker-breeder Princess Naldo a.k.a. GoldenDragon.
Recognizing the film’s symbolic importance to the country’s gamefowl breeding industry and the sport of cockfighting, Thunderbird – the dominant leader in gamefowl health and nutrition, has agreed to exclusively sponsor “Sabungero”.
“Anything for the betterment of Philippine cockfighting”, says Thunderbird’s Product Manager Francis Martinez.
“I’m so happy and grateful for Thunderbird’s generous support”, stated an elated JC Bernardo, adding that he is just as thankful for the cooperation of cockers who consented to appear as extras in the shootings done at the Ibaan Cockpit in Lipa City, in Daang-Hari Coliseum in Bacoor, Cavite and in Biñan Cockpit in Laguna.
It was also announced that the final shooting day will be during the staging of the 2009 World Slasher Cup-2 at the Araneta Coliseum on May 12, 14 & 16.
