No official details of James Reid’s injury has been released but word on social media is that it’s just a minor fracture. His arm may be in a cast for just a couple of weeks.

Back to ‘Pedro Penduko’, it has been officially announced on History Con 2017 that James Reid will portray the Pinoy komiks character. And they had to tweak the story to adapt it to the the half-Australian actor.

‘Pedro Penduko’, according to his komiks character, is an ordinary Filipino. But in the 2017 version, the character is a US-bred Pinoy who finds it hard to fit in and comes home to the Philippines where he discovers a supernatural connection. His name is Peter Harris.

Peter Harris feels like he doesn’t belong. A Filipino who lived all his life in the US where he grew up being bullied since grade school. Now 20 years old, he has had enough and wants to escape. Just then, his adoptive father passes away in a tragic accident involving something supernatural that nobody can explain. It will all unfold to him when he goes back to the Philippines to look for his mother whom he hasn’t seen since he was an infant. When he finds her, he learns that she has been a victim of a curse given by a ruler of Eastern Kasamaan.

As he embarks on a journey to find a cure, he learns so much more than what he originally set out to discover. That he is no ordinary human, and that he may be the prophesied ‘chosen one’ who will save the entire town from the rising evil that threatens it. However, does a loser and a whiny wimp like him has what it takes to take on the role of the new Pedro Penduko?

James Reid and Nadine Lustre seems to be on a hiatus from their love team roles. This after previous outings as JaDine had not been as successful as before. Now, Nadine is keeping herself busy with hosting chores on It’s Showtime while James will embark on a solo project.

Viva seems to believe this respite from their love team will rekindle the public’s interest in JaDine in future projects.
