“My Big Bossing” banners superstars Vic Sotto and Ryzza Mae Dizon, with Marian Rivera and Nikki Gil in the cast. Three of the country’s biggest directors helm three different stories within the movie namely Tony Y. Reyes, Marlon N. Rivera and Bb. Joyce Bernal.
“My Big Bossing” consists of three episodes of fantasy and wonder, each with its own storyline. It features a star-studded cast led by Bossing Vic Sotto, MMFF’s all-time box-office king and wonder child superstar Ryzza Mae Dizon in all three episodes.
Episode 1 entitled “Sirena” is directed by Tony Y. Reyes, and features the talents of Wally Bayola, Manilyn Reynes, and Pauleen Luna.
Episode 2 billed “Taktak,” directed by Marlon N. Rivera, is led by Marian Rivera and Jose Manalo in the cast.

“My Big Bossing’ is bigger and grander in scope this year because we are presenting three different stories in one film and each story was filmed independently of each other given that three different directors helmed each episode. No expense was spared in the overall production – costumes, design, special effects – particularly in the fantastical final episode. We just want to give the audience satisfying entertainment value. We want them to enjoy this film as much as we enjoyed creating this for them,” says OctoArts big boss Orly Ilacad.
