Kylie Verzosa to star in PH adaptation of South Korean film ‘The Housemaid’
Kylie Verzosa is set to lead the upcoming Philippine adaptation of the 2010 South Korean erotic-thriller film “The Housemaid.”
Viva Artists Agency revealed the Miss International 2016 titleholder’s involvement in the movie on its Instagram page yesterday, Oct. 21.
The film will also feature Jaclyn Jose, Albert Martinez, Alma Morena and Louise Delos Reyes, as per the Philippine Entertainment Portal.
Director Roman Perez will be helming the production of the Philippine remake. Prior to “The Housemaid,” Perez directed the 2019 drama-thriller “Adan.”
The team will begin lock-in taping on Monday, Oct. 25. The cast and crew will shoot the film’s scenes in Batangas, Bulacan and Tagaytay.
The 2010 version of “The Housemaid” starred Jeon Do-yeon, Lee Jung-jae and Seo Woo and was nominated for the Palme d’Or, the highest prize at the Cannes Film Festival, in the same year. It centers on a woman who works as a housemaid for an upper-class family and soon gets involved in a love triangle.
However, it is not the original version of the movie. The movie was first produced back in 1960 and directed by the late Kim Ki-young.
Prior to landing the lead role in the upcoming Philippine remake, Verzosa last starred in the romance-comedy movie “Love the Way U Lie” alongside Xian Lim and Alex Gonzaga. /ra
