MANILA – A day after filmmaker Antoinette Jadaone’s blog about an unidentified, troubled film project circulated online, Nadine Lustre, whose last announced big-screen project is with Jadaone, took to Instagram with a cryptic post of her own.
The Instagram story from Lustre’s account shows a spinal X-ray, with the text: “Diarrhea, fever, severe back pain since last Friday. That’s all you need to know.”
Followers of the 24-year-old actress were quick to speculate that the post had something to do with Jadaone’s blog entry titled “anti-climactic,” in which she referred to the “erratic” filming of a project.
“Sayang, andun na ang momentum eh,” Jadaone wrote. “More and more shooting days cancelled – some reasons more heartbreaking than others, so heartbreaking they make me cry.”
Jadaone did not specify which film she is referring to, only using the hashtag “foolishmovie.” She, however, had used this same hashtag in earlier blog posts on a film project starring James Reid and Lustre, before it was officially titled “Never Not Love You” in late December.
In a tweet last Sunday, Jadaone brought up a similar topic: “Woke up to know pack up ang shoot bigla. Now what to do today?”
Some replies to the tweet noted that “Never Not Love You” was the most recently announced project of Jadaone, who also worked with Reid and Lustre in “On the Wings of Love” and “Till I Met You.”
Viva Films, the producer of “Never Not Love You,” has yet to release a statement responding to speculation on the film’s supposed delay. However, Viva Artists Agency, which manages Lustre's career, re-posted the actress' Instagram story about her health, captioning it with: "Loud and clear. Get well soon, Nadine"
