Before being cast in the Metro Manila Film Festival entry Yesterday Today Tomorrow, Jericho Rosales' face was not seen on the big screen for quite a while.
The actor's last local film, prior to the Regal Films, all-star cast drama Yesterday Today Tomorrow, was the KC-Gabby Concepcion starrer, I'll Be There.
Jericho also appeared in his first international film, Subject: I Love You, in April 2011. He played the character of a Filipino who authored the infamous "I Love You" virus, circa 2000.
At the press conference of Vantage Razors where he was launched as the brand's endorser, Jericho revealed to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other media that his plans for next year mainly have to do with film projects.
He says that according his talent manager, Angeli Valenciano of Genesis Entertainment, he is scheduled to work on three films under Star Cinema and another three for Regal Films.
"They said nga na they will support me with three movies.
"So I'm very happy kasi medyo matagal-tagal na hindi ako nakagawa ng pelikula with Star [Cinema]...
"Dream ko talaga makagawa ng madaming pelikula."
The actor, who was in New York in July 2011 for acting and film-directing classes, states, "Next year, gusto kong ibang mga stories, ibang roles naman yung gampanan.
"So blessing for me na sabi ng Star Cinema gagawa [ako] ng pelikula with them.
'And then there's an offer also sa Regal Films to do another film, bukod dito sa YTT [Yesterday Today Tomorrow], and then... three films also with Regal."
Apart from the mainstream film projects, the actor/model/singer sees himself working on independent films, too, in 2012.
"[There are] other offers na indie. Wala pa kong indies, so next year, gagawin ko yung first indie ko.
"I might be involved in the production also.
"It's very exciting for me ngayon kasi naghahanda talaga ko. But for now... dun muna ko sa YTT."
