Heart ready for her baby project

ALDEN Richards hosted a thanksgiving party for the press and raffled off so many cash prizes. No wonder the press continues to love and appreciate him for not forgetting their help to him. His thanksgiving lunch was held at his own resto, Concha’s Garden Cafe at Sct. Madrinan after he just returned from Japan with his whole family in their first family vacation abroad ever.

He says the past year was a good one. “Ang daming blessings na dumating. My endorsements were renewed and extended up to next year. Itong Concha’s will soon be available for franchising. Sa TV, nasa planning stage pa kung ano ang magiging next program ko. Siempre, tuloy-tuloy pa rin ako sa ‘Eat Bulaga.’ Wala pang final word sa movie namin ni Maine (Mendoza) so abangan na lang natin. May international shows din pala ako in January. Unang-una na sa Sydney, Australia, then GMA Pinoy TV shows sa New Jersey in the US and Toronto in Canada.”

The fans of Heart Evangelista and her love team with Korean actor Alexander Lee have reason to feel sad. Their primetime rom-com, “My Korean Jagiya,” is ending next week on January 12 after a successful five-month run.

“Maraming nagme-message sa’kin na malulungkot sila pag wala na ang show, pero abangan nyo dahil pasabog ang ending ng ‘My Korean Jagiya’,” says Heart. “Magkahiwalay kami ngayon so malalaman ninyo kung magkikita pa ba kami ni Alexander or not. This is one of my successful shows ever and I can really feel na tinanggap talaga ako ng viewers nang buong puso in my role as Gia. From the bottom of my heart, I’d like to thank all the regular followers of the show na sumubaybay sa amin gabi-gabi for five months.”

Viewers are also curious as to what will happen with the love triangle between Janice de Belen, Ricky Davao and Raymart Santiago, a zany subplot in the show that made viewers glued to it night after night. “Nakakatuwa ang mangyayari sa kanila,” says Heart. “Their story is truly endearing and entertains the viewers.”

After this, Heart says she won’t accept any new show for a while, so that she and her husband Sen. Chiz Escudero can concentrate on their “little project.” Although she won’t specify it, you can read between the lines as she has already declared before that she and Sen. Chiz want to have their own baby this year. 

She has also said before that they just want one baby because Chiz has already twins, a boy and a girl, from his previous marriage. “Okay lang sa amin kahit boy or girl ang ibigay ni Lord sa amin,” adds Heart. “Basta ang mahalaga, healthy siya at sana, hindi maging mahirap ang pagbubuntis ko.”

Mother Lily Monteverde and her daughter Roselle are determined to produce more movies in 2018 after the huge success of Regal Entertainment’s “Haunted Forest.” Their first salvo for the New Year that’s opening in theaters on January 17 is a family drama, “Mama’s Girl,” written by Gina Marissa Tagasa and directed by Connie Macatuno. 

“Mama’s Girl” stars Sylvia Sanchez as a single mom who raises her only daughter, Sofia Andres as Abby Potpot, all by herself. Conflict occurs when Sofia wants to assert herself and be independent. Also starring in the movie are Diego Loyzaga and Jameson Blake as Sofia’s leading men, with Arlene Muhlach as Sylvia’s best friend. 

For their Valentine presentation, they have the fantasy-romance, “My Fairy Tail Love Story,” about Chantal, a girl who turns into a mermaid who just keeps on singing. Directed by Perci Intalan, it stars Janella Salvador, Elmo Magalona and Kiko Rodriguez. 

Other projects of Regal are “Recipe for Love,” written and directed by Jose Javier Reyes and starring Christian Bables and introducing Cora Wadell; and “So Connected,” a millennial love story written and directed by Jason Laxamana and starring Janella Salvador and Jameson Blake.

At Viva Films, their first offering for 2018 is “Mr. and Mrs. Cruz” that opens on January 24. This is the follow-up movie of acclaimed young female director Sigrid Andrea Bernardo to her mammoth hit in 2017, “Kita Kita.” This stars JC Santos as Mr. Cruz and Ryza Cenon as Mrs. Cruz, but they’re not married to each other. They have both just split from their respective partners and meet by chance in Palawan while feeling lonely and nursing their broken hearts.

One movie of Viva that looks promising is “Buy Bust,” directed by Erik Matti who co-wrote it with Michiko Yamamoto. We saw its trailer and it reminds us of the Indonesian action hit, “The Raid.” It stars Anne Curtis in an action role as a drug enforcement agent battling for her life versus drug syndicates. This also stars martial arts star Brandon Vera, Victor Neri, Joross Gamboa, AJ Muhlach, Mara Lopez and Nonie Buencamino.

Other Viva projects in the work are “Miss Granny, 20 Again,” based on a hit Korean movie with Sarah Geronimo as a grandma who magically regains her youth and becomes a young woman once again, co-starring James Reid and directed by Joyce Bernal. Aside from this, James is also said to be doing a romance movie with Nadine Lustre, directed by Antoinette Jadaone, and a remake of “Pedro Penduko.” There is also a new movie tentatively titled “Sid & Aya” currently being shot starring Dingdong Dantes and Anne Curtis.

Meanwhile, Bela Padilla and Carlo Aquino star in “Meet Me in St. Gallen” (shot on location in Switzerland), directed by Irene Villamor of “Camp Sawi” and “Destined to be Yours.” Yassi Pressman is launched to stardom in “Ang Pambansang Third Wheel” opposite Sam Milby, directed by indie filmmaker Ivan Payawal. 

For Star Cinema, their first offering for 2018 is the comedy “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” with Judy Ann Santos and Angelica Panganiban as two wives who get the shock of their lives when they find out the truth about their respective husbands, Joross Gamboa and JC De Vera. This is written and directed by Jun Lana and is a co-production with his IdeaFirst Company and Quantum Films.

Other Star Cinema projects are “Kasal” with Derek Ramsay and Bea Alonzo, the horror movie “Eerie” directed by Mikhail Red starring Charo Santos and Bea Alonzo, “Panahon ng Halimaw” starring Piolo Pascual and Shaina Magdayao written and directed by Lav Diaz.
