Nadine Lustre, Aga Muhlach to star in ‘Miracle in Cell No. 7’ remake
MANILA, Philippines — A tandem that perhaps no one imagined will retell one of the best-selling films in Korea.
Actress Nadine Lustre alongside Aga Muhlach are set to star in the Filipino adaptation of “Miracle in Cell No. 7,” a report from Philippine Entertainment Portal said Thursday.
The news came a few days after Viva Artists Agency announced in its official Instagram account an upcoming project for the two.
“Miracle Cell No. 7” is a 2013 multi-awarded Korean comedy-drama film starring Ryu Seung-ryong, Kal So-won, and Park Shin-hye.
It tells the story of a mentally challenged man who was wrongfully imprisoned and was helped by criminals in his cell to see his daughter again.
Viva has yet to announce other details of the upcoming film.
Fresh from winning several Best Actress awards, Lustre also has an upcoming movie with Sam Concepcion titled “Indak.”
It was also recently announced she will star with boyfriend James Reid in the remake of another Korean film “Spellbound.”
Meanwhile, Muhlach’s last film was “First Love” with Bea Alonzo which premiered in October 2018. (Editor: Katherine G. Adraneda)
