Louise nanggulat sa audition

SO...CHISMIS ITOH!? - Ruel Mendoza - Pang-masa

Naipalabas na rin sa wakas ang indie film na matagal nang natapos ni Louise delos Reyes na may titulong Island Dreams. Kasama ito sa New Wave feature films ng Metro Manila Film Festival 2013.

Isang romantic-comedy ang Island Dreams na gumaganap si Louise bilang isang informal tour guide sa isang island resort at nakilala niya ang isang American played by Alexis Petitprez at hindi sinasadyang na-in love sila.

Mula ito sa direksiyon ni Gino Santos at Aloy Adlawan.

“The project was in full force. During December 2012, we were already in pre-production and by March we were already shooting. Our LA-based producers, Filipino-Americans Ken Au and Ferida Au, wanted to make a Filipino love story filled with Filipino touches and culture,” say pa ni Direk Gino.

Kakaiba nga raw ang pagkukuwento nila sa pagbuo ng isang relasyon ng isang dalagang Pinay at isang bagets pang foreigner.

“It shows us how we relate and treat them both the good and the bad.

“There are a lot of cultural jokes like how Filipinos are. Also, this film is appropriate for all ages, although we do talk about sex in some particular scenes,” dagdag pa niya.

Nagpa-audition nga raw sila para sa lead roles ng indie film at nakuha ito ni Louise at ng Paris-born actor na si Alexis.

“Louise is such a fresh of breath air, and she is such a wonderful dramatic actress.

“I was surprised at first because when she auditioned we found out that she’s actually really funny. She is the type of actress that when you see her on the screen you can’t help but fall in love with whoever she is playing.

“We saw a lot of theater actors, models, and actors for the role of the American tourist. The role was very particular with being Caucasian.

“When Alexis came on the set, he charmed all of us with his acting. Last year, he did a Singapore film but this will be his first Filipino film. I really hope he gets noticed in this one,” sabi pa ng director.

Unang feature film ni Direk Gino ay ang indie film na The Animals na pinagbidahan ni Albie Casiño. Happy nga ang direktor na nakipag-colla­borate ito with Aloy Adlawan.

“Direk Aloy and I had lots and lots of pre-production meetings, we would story board all our scenes together along with our cinematographer, Carlo Mendoza.

“Even though I also placed some of my touches into the editing and the overall look, it was fun working with a co-director because we learned from each other. I definitely learned a lot from him, after all he has been in the business for a long time now,” pahayag pa ng direktor.

Ang iba pang cast ng Island Dreams ay sina Chanel Latorre, Hector Macaso, Natasha Villaroman, at Irma Adlawan.  


Fast & Furious 7 tuloy pa rin ang pagpapalabas sa April

Maire-release pa rin ang Hollywood film na Fast & Furious 7 kahit na wala na ang isang lead actor nitong si Paul Walker.

Ang playdate nito ay sa April 2015 at hindi nila tatanggalin ang mga eksena ng yumaong si Walker. Nagkaroon ng kaguluhan sa production ng Fast & Furious 7 dahil sa biglaang pagpanaw ni Paul dahil sa isang car accident noong nakaraang buwan.

Heto ang mensahe na pinoste ni Vin Diesel sa kanyang Facebook regarding the release of Fast & Furious 7 in 2015:

“Fast and Furious 7 will be released … April 10th 2015! P.s. He’d want you to know first …”

Tinutukoy ni Diesel ay si Walker na namaalam noong Nov. 30 sanhi ng isang car accident sa Santa Clarita sa California, USA.

Ang Fast & Furious franchise ay meron ng global box-office gross ng over $2 billion.
