Liza Soberano, Enrique Gil partner with Dan Villegas for new film
Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil shook hands with “Exes Baggage” director Dan Villegas, signaling the start of their next film project.
Also working on the project is Tonet Jadaone, who directed the hit romantic comedy movie “That Thing Called Tadhana,” and Project 8 corner San Joaquin Projects, which produced “Never Not Love You” starring James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
The new project was known through an Oct. 26 Instagram post by Villegas’ production company Black Sheep. The post also included several snapshots of the team meeting over the project, which has been planned to come out in 2019.
The last movie LizQuen starred in was 2017’s “My Ex and Whys” by Cathy Garcia-Molina. It opened in theaters on Feb. 15 and earned over P400 million worldwide. It was their highest-grossing film to date.
Meanwhile, Soberano is expected to appear in an upcoming film reboot of Filipino superhero Darna. The project was previously helmed by Erik Matti, but the director recently opted out due to “creative differences.” Matti had felt passionate about making the new Darna film because he believed his career, which started as a continuity supervisor for Peque Gallaga’s “Darna” with Anjanette Abayarir, had come full circle. /ra
