Viva Films has found a new leading man for Anne Curtis.
Masipag muli this year ang Viva Films after a long hiatus. Still co-producing movies with both GMA Films (the upcoming I.T.A.L.Y.) and Star Cinema (When Love Begins and the upcoming A Very Special Love), nagbabalik-solo production ngayong taon na ito ang Viva.
Already, it has released one early this year, the Robin Padilla and Ai-Ai delas Alas comedy Ikaw Pa Rin (Bongga Ka Boy) and is ready to release another film this July, the sexy movie Torotot. Isang entry ang sinabmit ng Viva sa upcoming MMFF 2008 at nakapasa ito, ang Baler.
Originally titled The Siege of Baler from the script of Roy Iglesias to be directed by Mark Meily, this is a fictionalized love story set in a very real historical background during the siege of Baler during the Spanish era.
Ang pangalan lang ni Anne ang naka-submit na magbibida sa pelikula dahil naghahanap pa that time ang Viva ng mga makakasama niya pati na ang kanyang leading man.
Nakatanggap ng text ang PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last night na officially may napili na silang gaganap na leading man ni Anne and it will be Jericho Rosales.
Anne will play a Spanish girl in love with a Pinoy Katipunero na si Echo.
Nagbigay na rin ng partial list ang Viva ng ibang co-stars nila, sina Mark Bautista, Carlo Aquino, and Desiree del Valle.
Anne, Mark, Desiree, and Carlo are all Viva Artist Agency talents. Dating Star Magic turned Genesis talent naman si Echo.
