New 'Feng Shui' a continuation of 2004 hit

MANILA - The new "Feng Shui" movie will be titled just that, lead star Kris Aquino revealed on Tuesday during a story conference for the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry.

According to Aquino, her upcoming horror film will be a continuation of the 2004 blockbuster also directed by Chito Rono. Star Cinema will produce anew.

This time, the actress will be joined by "Ikaw Lamang" star Coco Martin, who will portray a hardworking man who will suffer the same misfortune as Aquino's character in the original "Feng Shui."

Also reprising their roles in the 2014 movie are Cherry Pie Picache and Joonee Gamboa. New cast members include Carmi Martin, Ian Veneracion, Joem Bascon, and Martin Escudero.

Meanwhile, Aquino said she would gladly settle for No. 2 in the box-office race at this year's MMFF, noting that her son, Bimby, will also be competing via the Vice Ganda-starrer "Praybeyt Benjamin 2."

She said Martin would also not mind conceding the top spot, pointing out his close ties with Vice Ganda. Martin has referred to the comedian as his best friend even before he joined showbiz.

Filming for "Feng Shui" will start in the last week of August, Aquino said.
