MANILA - Actress Iza Calzado shared some details about her newest movie project, the upcoming horror film "Maria Leonora Teresa."

Calzado said she plays the role of a mother in the film.

"Basically it's about the relationship of mothers, mother figures and their children. Basta may mangyayari sa mga anak namin," said the actress.

"Masaya pero nakakatakot 'yung materyal. Dapat matakot kayo kapag nanood kayo. Huwag kayong matuwa kapag nanood kayo, konting tuwa lang," she added.

Calzado said she is grateful to be given the role, which was originally meant for actress Judy Ann Santos.

"It was her role. I think something happened. I don't really know what happened but I'm really grateful na sa akin napunta so thank you, ate Judai," she said.

Directed by Wenn Deramas, "Maria Leonora Teresa" also stars Jodi Sta. Maria and Zanjoe Marudo.

Aside from the horror film, Calzado is also busy taping scenes for ABS-CBN's upcoming series "Hawak Kamay" with Nikki Gil and Piolo Pascual.
