Bea Alonzo, Charo Santos team up in upcoming horror flick
Expect to see more of Charo Santos on the big screen, this time to give chills to your bones.
On the official Instagram account of Star Cinema on Monday, it was revealed that Santos will team up with actress Bea Alonzo to star in the horror film “Eerie.”
The photo shows the duo with Mikhail Red, who is set to direct the film, and Star Cinema Chief Operating Officer Malou Santos.
In her own post, Alonzo said that she was grateful for the opportunity to step her acting shoes onto the horror genre, sharing stellar billing with Santos, who has not made a film like this since “Itim” back in 1978.
“I can’t even begin to tell you how overwhelming this is,” Alonzo said. “All the good opportunities, the people [I] have been dreaming to be working with, the concepts [I] have been dying to be working on, all coming together at the same time.”
Another great opportunity 🙏🏻 ——————————- This afternoon, we had a story conference for our new movie “EERIE” which is going to be directed by Mikhail Red.. This is going to be my FIRST horror movie and what a great honor to be doing it with THE Charo Santos.. She has not done a horror movie since “ITIM” back in the late 70’s.. I can’t even begin to tell you how overwhelming this is.. All the good opportunities, the people i have been dreaming to be working with, the concepts i have been dying to be working on.. all coming together at the same time.. I am excited for this journey.. ❤️ 2018 might just be my favorite year 🙏🏻
