Direk Enzo Williams (left frame) on Lovi Poe: "I am happy about the trust na ibinigay niya sa akin kasi ang mga love scenes niya she was almost naked so that is real trust talaga." Derek Ramsay is the leading man of Lovi in this sexy drama.

Matapos gawin ang Robin Padilla-starrer na Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo ay isang provocative sex drama titled The Escort ang bagong handog ni Direk Enzo Williams.
"I am excited to work on a new movie after Bonifacio," pahayag ng director na whose debut film earned for him an Urian nomination. "I am happy to be working with Regal Entertainment because it's a challenging. I am working on a different film genre. I am a person who wants to get challenge and work on something new."
Sa panayam ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay Direk Enzo during the grand presscon of The Escort, nabanggit niya na ang supervising producer na si Manny Valera ang nagpakilala sa kanya kay Roselle Monteverde and enabled him to get this directorial assignment.
"I owe it to Direk Manny that I got on board as director of The Escort," ani Direk Enzo. Pero buo na raw ang The Escort nang pumasok siya bilang director. Konsepto raw ito ni Roselle pero ang script ay sinulat ni Senedy Que.
What did you like about the project?
"Well, it’s dark. Actually, it’s serious film, hindi siya pa-cute. Hindi siya rom-com. This is something that I want to do. It’s dark kasi isipin mo ang topic escort service, prostitution, di ba? It is not the usual kilig-kilig moment. Si Derek is for hire. Si Boyet bumili ng babae. Di ba ang dark ng character That’s what I like about it," sagot niya.
What is the challenge in doing this film? "It is a different genre, present time, drama, sexy movie. Totally different from what I have done before."
Kumusta ang mga artista mo?

"Lahat sila extremely professional. Derek, we became really close sa set. Everybody is so professional. Everybody knows what they are doing. I learned a lot from Derek especially sa love scenes. Parang siya na yung master, e. Well, I would always tell him what I have in mind and we would collaborate. And he has suggested a lot of good movements kumbaga pero siyempre I learned a lot from him. He is a really cool.

How about Lovi?
"I was surprised how professional she is actually. With Lovi naman, I am happy about the trust na ibinigay niya sa akin kasi ang mga love scenes niya she was almost naked so that is real trust talaga so I appreciate that from her knowing that Lovi is always happy ang dating. Ang galing ni Lovi, ang galing niya umarte."
Ayon pa kay Direk Enzo, malaking bagay din para sa kanya na nakatrabaho niya si Christopher de Leon.
"What can you sayt working with a great actor like him? Sabi ko nga, milestone na sa career ko to work with him. I have always respect for actors like him who in a way have established Philippine cinema."
Kumusta naman ang experience working with Regal?
"It is a challenge kasi Roselle trusted me so much. I am surprised with the trust they gave me kasi I had full creative control. I think they visited the set once lang yata just to say hello to everybody."
Compared to Bonifacio, how difficult is it filming The Escort?

"Both are not difficult. I had fun in doing both movies because I am working with great people. Wala akong naging problema. Everything was smooth. Everything was fun," kwento pa ni Direk Enzo.
Bukod sa The Escort, katatapos lang niya isang action film titled AWOL kung saan bida si Gerald Anderson. ABS-CBN film na meant for cable release ang AWOL pero nang mapanood daw ito ng mga ABS-CBN bosses ay gusto nila itong ipalabas for limited engagement. May isang movie pa raw siya na gagawin pero sa January pa raw ito kaya ayaw niya itong i-preempt.
For now, excited si Direk Enzo for The Escort na ipapalabas sa mga sinehan simula November 2.
