Star for all Seasons Vilma Santos says she is excited to work with actress Kim Chiu.

MANILA, Philippines – After confirming that she will be doing a movie this year, Batangas Governor Vilma Santos said she is looking forward to working with young actress Kim Chiu.

In an interview with “Showbiz News Ngayon” during the story conference of their upcoming film, Santos revealed she is excited because the film’s storyline is entirely different from the previous movies she has done before.

“It has something to do with mga Pilipinong mahilig magpagamot sa mga healers but at the end of the day, mga nangyayari sa kapaligiran pagdating sa more on spiritual. Doon iikot ang storya,” she said.

“I find this something new unang una sa story. First time akong gagawa nito plus the fact na I will be doing a movie with Kim Chiu. Definitely that is something very important. At this point in time, what is important is chemistry plus a good project, a good director,” she added.

According to Santos, she even asked her constituents in Batangas if it is okay for her to do this project.

“Kahapon lang sa flag ceremony at sa mga bayan na iba’t iba kong iniikutan, nagpapapaalam ako sa kanila na baka puwede naman akong maka-raket ng isang pelikula. Sabi naman nila ‘opo.’ Payag naman sila,” she shared.

Meanwhile, Chiu disclosed she considers it an honor to be working with the Star for All Seasons.

“Masaya ako and excited ako. Something new din for me to do a horror movie under Star Cinema and to work with Governor Vilma Santos,” she said.

Santos and Chiu’s upcoming film will be directed by Chito Roño under Star Cinema.
