May 5 (Tuesday) nang i-post ni Direk Lore Reyes, co-direktor ni Direk Peque sa mga pelikula, sa kanyang Facebook account na na-hospitalized ang director. Ang rason na sinabi, he was hospitalized due to complications arising from his past health conditions.

Pakiusap pa noon ng kanyang pamilya, “They want to honor this wishes that this is kept within the family. They appreciate everyone’s messages of love and concern, but they would be grateful if this remains a private affair.”
