'Kickass' Erich turns action star in thriller film

MANILA, Philippines -- Erich Gonzales is turning a new leaf as an actress as she becomes an action star in an independent film by director Richard Somes.

The Kapamilya actress returns to the indie scene with "Mariposa sa Hawla ng Gabi." The "dark ang gritty" thriller is among the film entries in the ongoing 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival.

According to Somes, the titular character in the film was specifically written for Gonzales, who he had worked with previously in the acclaimed horror film "Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang."

"I thought Erich really suited the lead character of Mariposa and I have already written the script to really suit her personality. Erich will portray a very challenging role here and very different from the ones she has done so far," Somes said.

In "Mariposa," Gonzales portrays a "probinsyana" whose quest to find her long lost sister puts her in challenging situations in the city.

In one scene in the film, according to Somes, the prized Star Magic talent had to skin a monitor lizard, which she overcame without any hint of fear.

Gonzales will also figure in "amazing fight scenes." No body double was tapped for these segments, Somes offered.

"You will really see a 'kickass' Erich in this film," the director said. "There are a lot of compelling scenes in 'Mariposa.' Erich was very fantastic in portraying a really strong woman."

Joining Gonzales in the cast of "Mariposa sa Hawla ng Gabi" are Alfred Vargas,  Joel Torre, Mark Gil, Rez Cortes, Maria Isabel Lopez, Dennis Padilla and John Lapus.

The 2012 Cinema One Originals festival will run from November 28 to December 9 at Robinson’s Galleria Movie World and from November 29 to December 4 at the Edsa Shangri-La Cineplex.

Erich Gonzales in "Mariposa Sa Hawla Ng Gabi"

After “Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang”, Erich Gonzales stars in another dark and gritty film by acclaimed director Richard Somes, “Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi” that will be screened during the 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival.

Somes admitted that he loved Erich’s acting style, “I thought Erich really suited the lead character of Mariposa and I have already written the script to really suit her personality. The problem was, she became super busy because of her other commitments,” he said.

The director who has worked with Erich thrice was surprised when the seasoned actress informed him that she has received the script and felt ecstatic to do the film. “We talked and she agreed to adjust her schedule to make room for Mariposa,” Somes said.

In Mariposa, Erich will portray a ‘probinsiyana’ who ventures into the city to find her long lost sister. Somes said that this reunion would be fun and easy for both of them since he already knew what Erich is capable of. “Erich will portray a very challenging role here and very different from the ones she has done so far,” he said.

The director mentioned that in the film, Erich skinned a monitor lizard without any hint of fear and that she has some really amazing fight scenes without the help of a double. “You will really see a ‘kickass’ Erich in this film,” he said.

Likewise for Alfred Vargas who also stars in Mariposa. Somes said that Vargas prepared physically and mentally for this project, “Alfred has always been pictured as a kind and handsome corporate guy; very clean and gentlemanly. But here in Mariposa, he’ll portray a very different role; the characters here are dark, grim and gritty,” he said.

The film was set in 1994 in the gloomy side of Metro Manila. “Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi” also stars Joel Torre, Mark Gil, Rez Cortes, Maria Isabel Lopez, Dennis Padilla and John Lapus who will also portray a shocking role.

“There are a lot of compelling scenes in Mariposa. Erich was very fantastic in portraying a really strong woman,” said Somes.

Watch “Mariposa Sa Hawla ng Gabi” on December 1 at 5:00 p.m., December 5 at 9:15 p.m. and December 8 at 2:30 p.m. at the Robinson’s Galleria Movie World and December 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Edsa Shang-ri La Cineplex during the 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival.

The 2012 Cinema One Originals festival will run from November 28 to December 9 at Robinson’s Galleria Movie World and from November 29 to December 4 at the Edsa Shangri-La Cineplex. The festival’s much awaited awards night will be held on December 3 at the Studio 1, ABS-CBN Main Building.

The 2012 Cinema One Originals Festival is an annual project of the Cinema One, the local movie channel on cable, owned and operated by Creative Programs, Inc (CPI).
