MANILA - "Talk Back and You're Dead" star Nadine Lustre revealed on Thursday that a sequel to the blockbuster movie is in the works.
The 20-year-old actress made the announcement at a party celebrating the box-office success "Talk Back and You're Dead," a co-production of ABS-CBN's Skylight Films and Viva Films, at the latter's headquarters in Ortigas.
"Nagulat talaga kami dahil after the roll of screen credits, may blurb na 'Never Talk Back to a Gangster,'" Lustre said, referring to the title of the follow-up to the Alesana Marie book on which the movie was based.
Also present at the thanksgiving party were cast members Yassi Pressman, Cliff Logan, King Certeza, Billy Villeta, Carlo Lazerna, Kiko Ramos, and Coraleen Wadell.
James Reid, Lustre's onscreen partner, was engaged in a previous recording commitment.
Reid and Lustre, both exclusive talents of Viva Artists Agency, signed early this week a contract with ABS-CBN following the success of "Talk Back and You're Dead" and their other film together, "Diary ng Panget."
According to the young stars, their contracts include albums and a TV series. -- Report from Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
