“The year 2017 is very special for me,” he says, “because this will mark a new chapter.”
For one, he has just finished promoting “Bukaan 8,” a film that he starred in and produced, and he’s now preparing to campaign for the upcoming “Filosofi Kopi 2,” the sequel to 2015’s uber-popular movie about, well, coffee and coffee shops. For this new movie, Jerikho et al. will explore Indonesia’s coffee culture down to the actual farmers. And they’re also preparing a unique multi-platform approach which includes a prequel series. “The prequels will air on YouTube, and then tie in to the first ‘Filosofi Kopi,’” the actor-slash-producer-slash-entrepreneur explains. “We’ll also create a radio play, and after that a comic series.”
All that being said, Jerikho appeared to really light up while talking about the one upcoming film project that he can’t discuss in detail yet. “I got a role in an action movie,” he said with a grin, “I’ll be shooting at the end of the year, and I’m now already preparing myself.” Now that would definitely be a movie worth waiting for.
