Derrick Monasterio recently inked a movie contract with Regal Films.
The GMA-7 actor-singer was even called the Millennial Regal Baby by the film outfit's matriarch Lily Monteverde.
In fact, the contract served as Mother Lily's birthday gift to him when he signed it last August 2, a day after his 21st birthday.
As part of his contract, he is promised to star in his first solo film.
When PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Derrick during his 21st birthday celebration earlier today, August 15, he admitted that he has not spoken yet with Regal regarding his first starring role on the big screen.
However, he said, "Pero sabi ni Mother Lily, may pinatikim siya kung anong klaseng movie gagawin.
"Mga sexy sexy daw. Birthday gift daw niya, bibigyan niya akong solo movie, tapos sexy sexy din."
It is also known that Regal Films is fond of casting a mix of ABS-CBN and GMA actors in one movie.
According to Derrick, he looks forward to working with Kapamilya actors and actresses for the first time since he is now part of the Regal Family.
He revealed, "Super. Yun nga yung gusto ko, e. Sabi ko [kay] Mother, sana.
"Kasi siyempre iba pa rin, e. Gusto ko ma-try makawork yung taga ABS-CBN kasi iba yung chemistry, kumbaga. Maraming din akong matutunan definitely sa kanila."
But if he will be given the chance to choose a Kapamilya actress as his leading lady, who would it be?
His answer: "Jessy Mendiola."
This is the same with his answers in other interviews when he was asked about his celebrity crush.
He stressed out, "Siya pa rin. Wala lang, crush ko siya dati pa, e. Sexy pa!"
CONCERT WITH KAPUSO ACTORS. While waiting for his movie and next teleserye, Derrick keeps himself busy with his music career.
Aside from promoting his solo album under GMA Records, the actor-singer is also gearing up for a concert with fellow Kapuso singer-actors Rocco Nacino, Jake Vargas, and Aljur Abrenica.
Derrick says about this concert which is titled Oh Boy!, "Di pa po kami nagre-rehearse. Mag-uumpisa po kami this weekend.
"Tapos, pre-prod meetings, pili kami ng songs. Tapos nagbabatuhan lang kami ng concepts sa mga producers."
For his solo performance, Derrick made a request to the producers.
"I said to them, I want to perform my forte, a classical prod. They agreed naman, they're just going to alter it a little."
The concert is set to happen on September 23 at the Music Museum.
