Sharon Cuneta launches indie script contest


Megastar Sharon Cuneta is inviting independent filmmakers to submit screenplays for a future film.

“The one I pick will get a P250,000 cash prize,” she said.

She was not looking for a vanity project, she clarified, but merely asking filmmakers, “What type of movie do you see me in?”

The script should “create excitement… indie in spirit but with a mainstream timbre,” said Cuneta, who is preparing for “Madam Chairman,”  her new TV5 series.

“They should be simple but earnest—or totally different.”

Screenplays may be e-mailed to: Bayani San Diego Jr.

    This is an insult to her home studio’s current battery of scriptwriters. Even to the likes of Ricky Lee in the movie industry at the moment. Talaga bang wala na silang maisip na role for Sharon, that she has to launch a search out of desperation? I think her search should be on how she could lose weight!!! Jeeez With her money and modern medicine, pwede bang wala nang solution ang katabaan niya? And she should do it not for a role but for her health. Pag pumayat siya, she can do any role again.
