Did Nico Antonio get the lead role in Posas because he is the son of the film’s producer? Atty. Joji Alonso, co-producer of this Cinemalaya entry, answered: “Unang-una, bilang producer, anong pakialam naman nila, eh, pera ko naman ito, di ba? Whose money is it anyway? It’s mine, not theirs. I can cast anyone I want. Kung may problema sila, ako na lang, huwag na lang ang anak ko.” In Posas, singer-actor Nico plays a cell phone snatcher who is captured and tortured by policemen. The film will compete in the Director’s Showcase category of the 2012 Cinemalaya.
