LOOK: Xian Lim, Nadine Lustre team up for upcoming flick ‘Ulan’
Expect a new movie from Nadine Lustre coming soon, this time without James Reid.
Lustre’s upcoming film will pair her with Xian Lim, as announced in a story conference by Viva Entertainment yesterday, June 20.
It was also revealed that their movie will be titled “Ulan”. Joining them will be AJ Muhlach and Marco Gumabao.
Taking the director’s seat for “Ulan” will be Irene Villamor, who is currently enjoying box office success with the hit “Sid and Aya: Not a Love Story” starring Anne Curtis and Dingdong Dantes.
In Villamor’s Instagram post last June 13, she teased some pages turning yellowish in color, which turns out to be the script for the movie.

kada umuulan, nagrerevise ako nitong script na nagsimula sa isang maikling kwento sinulat ko maraming taon na ang nakaraan. ngayo’y naninilaw na ang mga pahina. pero buo pa rin ang mga pangarap ko habang bagyo, paglalakad nang mag-isa habang bumabaliktad ang payong at tinatangay ng hangin ang dating manipis kong katawan… at isang beses na minsan sumilip ang araw habang ambon. ngayon, muli kitang binabalikan. dahil ikaw ang una kong pag-ibig. ang unang sipon at lagnat. PS pasasalamat rin sa lahat ng nanood ng sid and aya! sa mga sumuong sa ulan! at sa lahat ng klase ng pandaraya! salamat! ❤️ my heart is full. #sidandayanotalovestory third week na!!!
“[K]ada umuulan, nagrerevise ako nitong script na nagsimula sa isang maikling kwento sinulat ko maraming taon na ang nakaraan,” Villamor wrote about the movie. (Every time it rained, I would revise this script that started as a short story I wrote years ago.)
The script for the movie appears to have first been written back in 2005. She described the movie as “ang una kong pag-ibig, ang unang sipon at lagnat (my first love, first colds and fever).”
During the conference, Villamor declined to reveal more details about the movie, but teased that it will be about self-love. No release date has been set yet.
