Vanessa Hudgens set to film travel documentary in PH
Filipino-American actress Vanessa Hudgens is set to visit the Philippines for the first time for the filming of her upcoming travel documentary in Palawan and Manila.
Vanessa will be coming to the country together with her Filipina mom, Gina Guangco, and her sister Stella, later this month, as per a report by Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday, March 22. The documentary will showcase Vanessa’s close relationship with her family, and explore their Filipino roots.
“I feel like ours is such a relatable story to so many women all over the world. The more that we can share, the more we can lift each other up,” Vanessa said in a statement obtained by the publication.
The project will be helmed by Paul Soriano and will be produced under production company TEN17P. No further details on the title or the release date of the film have been given as of this writing.
“We are honored to work with Vanessa for this film project. It’s inspiring to note that with everything she has achieved in life, she wants to discover her Filipino roots and pay homage to her mother’s country,” Soriano was quoted as saying. “Hopefully, this opens doors for many more collaborations to come.”
Hudgens is widely known for her role as Gabriella Montez in the Disney hit film trilogy “High School Musical.” Some of the recent movies she was part of include “Tick, Tick…Boom!” and “The Princess Switch.”
Last February, Hudgens announced her engagement to her boyfriend, baseball player Cole Tucker. EDV
