James Reid is getting good breaks these days.
He is Sarah Geronimo's co-star in the Philippine remake of the Korean movie Miss Granny.
James confirms this during his ASAP Chillout session.
He says, "I'm excited that soon we're gonna have a movie together."
But before fans get overly excited or agitated, the 24-year-old actor says he will be playing the grandson to Sarah's character.
The original 2014 movie Miss Granny revolves around a 74-year-old widow who suddenly finds herself inside the body of a 20-year-old woman, played by Korean actress Shim Eun-kyung.
Should the producers of the Pinoy remake follow the original story of Miss Granny, James is the grandson that is a member of a heavy metal band.
James also reveals that they've already started filming, and that the movie might open in cinemas before the end of 2017.
A week before the announcement, James and Sarah did a production number together in ASAP, where they performed Louis Tomlinson's "Back to You."
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) had previously reported, in an article written by contributor and veteran reporter Jojo Gabinete, that James would play the grandson of Sarah in the movie.
NADINE IN PEDRO PENDUKO FILM. In another good break coming his way, James will soon be working again with real-life girlfriend Nadine Lustre.
They are set to top-bill a movie produced by Viva Films.
According to another article written by Jojo Gabinete and published in Abante, the JaDine movie project will be directed by Barry Gonzalez, who helmed Ella Cruz and Julian Trono's latest movie Fangirl/Fanboy.
The JaDine loveteam will be joined by new VIVA Artist Marco Gumabao.
And in still another good break, James is also set to top-bill a modern adaptation of Pedro Penduko, to be shown next year.
The ABS-CBN actor has started training for his character in the fantasy movie to be directed by Dan Villegas.
Nadine is also expected to be in this movie about a popular Pinoy komiks character.
This was confirmed by Viva Entertainment through a video released in its official YouTube channel. Paul Basinilio, identified in the video as a director, was quoted as saying, "Si Nadine, kasama din siya."
Through its Instagram account, Viva Entertainment also showed James during his first day of training for Pedro Penduko.
