Back in August, James Reid revealed that he’s taking on one of the biggest names in local comics, Pedro Penduko to film.

On Thursday (Oct. 19) Viva Artists shared a clip of the “Turning Up” singer training for the role with a lightsaber in hand.

Inspired by the original comic that tells the story of an ordinary Filipino who wards off the forces of evil with a magical amulet, the remake gives the tale a modern turn with Reid portraying Peter Harris, a young man who grows up in the US with his adoptive father. After his adoptive father dies in a tragic accident involving the supernatural, Peter must then return to the Philippines to track down his mother.
