Jennylyn nixes film offers for TV series

JENNYLYN Mercado is getting offers to do a new movie but it’s her decision not to accept it while she’s still busy with her primetime action-drama, “The Cure.” 

“Mahirap gawin ang ‘The Cure’ kasi mabusisi ang action scenes we are required to do so dito muna ako magpo-focus,” she says. “Medyo madugo ang mga eksena na madalas, puro big scenes at umaga na kapag natatapos ang taping. Hindi ko maisisingit gumawa ng bagong movie sa sobrang hectic ng schedule namin.”

She’s just thankful she has good rapport with her leading man in “The Cure,” Tom Rodriguez. “Mag-asawa ang roles namin as Charity and Greg Salvador. Akala noong una, baka mailang kami sa isa’t isa kasi common knowledge namang may kanya-kanya kaming love life, pero hindi naman nakaapekto sa amin at all.”

Tom is on with Carla Abellana while she’s with Dennis Trillo. 

“Actually, ‘magkapatid’ sina Tom at Dennis kasi iisa ang manager nila (Popoy Caritativo). Masarap katrabaho si Tom kasi very dedicated sa trabaho. Mas mahirap ang ginagawa niya sa show kaysa sa akin kasi he’s required to do more fight scenes and stunts. At hahanga ka kasi ayaw niyang magpa-double. Grabe, ang lakas ng loob at talagang kinakaya niya dahil ayaw niyang dayain ang viewers.”

She and the rest of the cast of “The Cure” are very grateful because the show continues to gain more loyal followers who want to know what will happen to the characters now that the epidemic caused by the deadly monkey virus continues to spread. “Mas patindi nang patindi ang bawat episode,” she adds. “May bago na namang member ng cast, si Lotlot de Leon as a nun, si Sister Rosita, na survivor ng epidemia. As Charity, mauubos naman ang pasencia ko kay Diva Montelaba as Suzy and her tyrannical boyfriend Jay Manalo as Fernan, so itinuloy ko na ang pagtakas mula sa kampo ng survivors sa epidemia.”

After doing youth-oriented films like “Fangirl/Fanboy” and “Squad Goals,” Ella Cruz is now cast in a horror-thriller about two sisters who become the victims of vicious criminals who try to invade their very own home one stormy night. She co-stars with internet sensation Donnalyn Bartolome in “Cry No Fear,” which is directed by Richard Somes.

As antagonistic half-sisters, Ella as Wendy and Donnalyn as Kaycee are always fighting with each other, much to the chagrin of their father Lito Pimentel. But when intruders led by Patricia Javier, Christopher Roxas and Lander Vera Perez try to get into their house after they’ve been left by themselves during a raging typhoon, they have no choice but to rely on each other in order to survive their horrible experience in the hands of the ruthless bad guys. 

“This is so different from what I usually do na pa-sweet or may ka-love team,” says Ella, who’s known as a dance princess. “This one is emotionally and physically draining. It’s so difficult kasi we have action scenes, umuulan lagi in the story so lagi kaming basang-basa at giniginaw.”

How is it working with Donnabelle? 

“Nagkatrabaho na kami before in ‘Darkroom’ and ‘Fangirl/Fanboy’ so we already know each other. But doing this movie, dun talaga kami naging close at para na kaming real sisters ngayon. We confide in each other.”

Bea Binene is given her most mature role to date in “Kapag Nahati ang Puso” where she plays a daughter who will be the rival of her own mom, Sunshine Cruz, over the attention of one man, Benjamin Alves. 

“I will be shedding my tweetums and teenybopper image here for good,” she says. “Very challenging ito for me so I’m preparing myself physically, emotionally and mentally for this turning point kind of role.”

So does it mean she will be ready to show some skin, do daring love scenes? 

“I’m sure may limitations pa rin kasi we’re doing a TV show, not naman a movie. Hindi naman ibig sabihin ng you are ready for more mature roles, maghuhubad ka na or makikipag-torrid bed scenes ka na. Yung mismong material namin about a mother and daughter fighting for one man ang talagang very mature.”

It’s her first time to work with both Sunshine Cruz and Benjamin Alves. “Nag-workshop na kami so relaxed na kami sa company ng isa’t isa,” she says. “Nakakatawa kasi when we shot our Christmas plug for GMA Network last year, nagkita kami ni Benjamin sa shoot and he asked me what my next project is after ‘Mulawin vs. Ravena.’ He even asked kung si Derrick Monasterio pa rin ang makakapareha ko uli. Little did we know na kami na pala ang magiging magkatambal in our next project. Si Benj ang pinaka-mature na magiging leading man ko, kasi before, puro mga dati ko nang kasama sa teen shows ng GMA-7.”

Regal Entertainment is introducing a new batch of future matinee idols in a barkada movie, “Walwal,” written and directed by Jose Javier Reyes who says this is an updated version of his youth movie, “Pare Ko.” The four guys are Elmo Magalona, Jerome Ponce, Kiko Estrada and Donny Pangilinan, all sons of more senior stars.

Elmo is the son of the late Francis Magalona. Jerome is the son of former Viva actor Jessie Delgado. Kiko is the son of Gary Estrada and Cheska Diaz. Donny is the son of Maricel Laxa and Anthony Pangilinan. 

“’Walwal’ is a story of growing up in the age of social media. Mas simple ang buhay noong araw. Competition was less and kids don’t get depressed and commit suicide. But we show na whatever happens to them, they’re accountable for their decisions in life,” related Reyes.

“Elmo is the obedient son, the type who follows lahat ng gusto ng mga magulang niya for him. Hilig niya is graphic arts, but his parents want him to be a lawyer kaya he’s taking up law. Si Jerome, siya ‘yung madrama ang buhay. Galing sa mahirap na pamilya at ang nanay niya is a has-been bold star. Kiko Estrada naman is aimless. He keeps changing his course in college at palit din ng palit ng girlfriend. Then he gets someone pregnant after a one-night stand, so nagkaproblema siya.”

And Donny? 

“His dream is to be a top filmmaker who’s recognized abroad. Donny is parang apo ko na kasi ninong ako sa kasal ng parents niya. Imagine, dinirek ko ang nanay niya sa maraming pelikula. Tapos, ngayon ang anak na ni Maricel ang dinidirek ko,” the award-winning writer-director revealed.

He praises his four actors for their energy and enthusiasm. “They really enjoy what they’re doing. Hindi sila pinilit mag-artista at gusto nila talaga ang ginagawa nila. They all deliver at makikita mo ang eagerness nila to do a good job. We’re all very pleased sa trabaho nila in ‘Walwal’ that opens in theaters on June 27.”

Sunshine Dizon has rested for a couple of months after her long-running afternoon soap, “Ika-6 Utos,” has ended. And now, she’s ready to go back to work as she’s just been included in the cast of the hit primetime show, “Kambal, Karibal.” She will play the role of Maricar, the long-lost biological mother of Kyline Alcantara who plays Cheska. 

Sunshine will appear in the story to get back Kyline from her adoptive mother, Carmina Villaroel as Geraldine. 

“Sa flashbacks, ipapakitang ipinaampon ko lang ang anak ko dahil sa kahirapan,” says Sunshine. “I’d like to thank everyone in the show for giving me a warm welcome nang magsimula akong mag-taping para sa ‘Kambal, Karibal.’ Ang sweet nila kasi may pa-red roses pa silang ibinigay sa akin.”

But of course, Kyline will not accept Sunshine as her mom that easily. Watch out for their confrontation scene with Kyline pouring her heart out as to why Sunshine gave her up for adoption. Kyline’s stock as a newbie actress really soared with her breakthrough role as the evil Cheska. Her catfight scenes with Bianca Umali as Crisan are always a big hit with loyal viewers of the show, making it a true toprater on primetime.
