Philippine independent film production company Reality Entertainment is currently looking for a Filipino actor to play the leading role of an upcoming martial arts film. On March 23, 2018, the company took to Facebook to announce the requirements.

The actor needed should be male, 20-30 years old, at least 5’5” and experienced in Filipino martial arts or wushu. Reality Entertainment is looking for “a real martial artist with star quality.”

In 2017, Reality Entertainment co-produced an action thriller film titled “BuyBust” with Viva Films. It was directed by Erik Matti, who co-founded Reality Entertainment with Dondon Monteverde.

“BuyBust” stars Victor Neri, AJ Muhlach, Nonie Buencamino, Mara Lopez, Joross Gamboa, Anne Curtis and Brandon Vera. The film marked the acting debut of Vera, who is the reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion.

Curtis underwent training in knife fighting in close quarters and basic weapon handling at the Scout Ranger Training School for her “BuyBust” role. The film involved 1,278 extras and 309 stuntmen.

The first films produced by Reality Entertainment were “Exodus: Tales from the Enchanted Kingdom” starring Bong Revilla and “Shake, Rattle and Roll 2k5” starring an ensemble cast including Ai-Ai de las Alas. Both films were released in 2005.

In 2012, Reality Entertainment released “Rigodon” starring Yam Concepcion and John James Uy, “Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles” starring Lovi Poe, Joey Marquez, Janice de Belen and Roi Vinzon and “Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang” starring Erich Gonzales and Derek Ramsay. In 2013, the company released “Kung Fu Divas” starring de las Alas and Marian Rivera and “On the Job” starring Piolo Pascual and Gerald Anderson.

In 2014, Reality Entertainment released “Honor Thy Father” starring John Lloyd Cruz and Meryll Soriano. This was followed by “Resureksyon” starring Paulo Avelino and Isabelle Daza in 2015.

In 2016, Reality Entertainment released “Seklusyon” starring Ronnie Alonte, Neil Ryan Sese, Rhed Bustamante, Dominique Roque and Phoebe Walker. It was Matti’s last film before directing “BuyBust.”
