EXCITED na si Kris Aquino dahil malapit na siyang mag-shoot ng pagbibidahan niyang horror flick to be directed by Adolf Alix Jr. para sa Internet TV service provider na iFlix.
“I’m so excited because si Adolf Alix is the one I’m working with. I love his work. Ni-research ko ‘yung mga indie movies niya, nanood din ako talaga. And the fact that we’re doing a horror together. My cinematographer there is Neil Daza, who has done almost all my Chito Roño horror films. So, it’s a new breed of a director with the DOP (director of photography) who has done my biggest hits, super na-excite talaga ako,” sabi ni Kris.
Ano ang kaibahan nito sa past horror movies niya? “This one is a very unique concept. That’s why I said yes to it, and nae-excite ako dito. There’s less pressure and because parang I’m their first na co-producer nila ng movie. This focuses on the emerging market, so nakakatuwa iyon.”
Excited din si Kris para sa kanyang Hollywood movie na “Crazy Rich Asians,” na set for release sa Aug. 17, 2018. “We were told by Warner Bros na I’m invited to attend several red carpet premieres for ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’ Sabi ko, ‘OMG.’ August pa naman, so sabi ko mga May natin paghandaan,” biro niya. “Nae-excite lang ako. Kasi the fact na sinabi na please block your schedule for these dates.”
Ang “Crazy Rich Asians” ay base sa novel ni Kevin Kwan na may kaparehong title. Directed by Jon M. Chu, ang Hollywood film adaptation nito ay pinagbibidahan nina Constance Wu, Henry Golding, at Michelle Yeoh. Bukod kay Kris, may isa pang Pinoy na kasama sa cast, ang Fil-Am actor at Superstore comedian na si Nico Santos.
