MANILA, Philippines – It seems that award-winning filmmakers Jeffrey Jeturian, Adolf Alix, Jr. and Armando Lao will have to give way to prizewinning senior film director Chito Roño.
Roño will carry out a much delayed but largely anticipated project for Vilma Santos.
The Star for All Seasons and the incumbent governor of Batangas has already met with the big bosses of Star Cinema to discuss the project. Contrary to earlier reports that Santos would star in a drama piece, a suspense thriller is in the offing.
The informant said there’s no major changes in the production staff as Roño will once again be at the helm.
According to our sources, Sharon Cuneta will finally join Santos in the film.
Cuneta is very excited about her pairing with Santos, one source said.
“Sharon is an avid Vilma Santos fan,” exclaimed the informant.
The source added that this project must be the main reason the megastar has been battling the bulges.
The shoot of the film will reportedly start in June.
