#SNAPSHOTS: Gerald, Julia, and JC join forces in new romance-horror movie
Date posted: September 2, 2014
Three of the biggest actors of ABS-CBN will star in a coming-of-age, sensual romance-horror story.
Gerald Anderson, Julia Montes, and JC de Vera are all excited to work together for the first time in a still-untitled romance-horror movie under Star Cinema.
The three attended the story conference for the film today, Sept. 2, together with director Manny Palo.
“I’ve never done a movie like this. I’m excited sa research, sa mga kailangan kong gawin para sa role ko na I’ve never done also in my career,” Gerald, whose last Star Cinema film was “On The Job,” enthuses.
JC, meanwhile, is grateful for the opportunity to do another film following “Once a Princess.”
“First romantic-horror story for me. Alam mong malalim siya, makaka-relate ‘yung mga tao dahil sa love angle. Para mag-add ng taste dun sa movie, nilagyan ng horror so magandang mix siya,” he says.
Direk Manny describes the film as a “coming-of-age story” that’s “gonna be a very sensual, romantic horror story.”
How daring will the film be?
“Hindi daring,” Julia clarifies. “Kasi ‘di ba ‘pag tumitingin tayo sa mahal natin, hindi naman porket tinitingnan mo, isa lang ‘yung ibig sabihin ng love. Meron [ding] lust… ‘Yun ‘yung makikita niyo sa film na ‘to: ‘Yung elaboration ng love.”
Here’s more of what we know so far: Julia will play Mia, a girl who will fall in love with either Alvin (JC) or Gio (Gerald). However, something – or someone – will hinder her.
According to Direk Manny, the film will be shot almost entirely in Baguio City, where he himself lived for some 15 years.http://starcinema.abs-cbn.com/latest-news/snapshots-gerald-julia-and-jc-join-forces-in-new-romance-horror-movie
