"Mas nakakahiya na bumalik ka at pinulot ka lang sa lupa," declared Kris Aquino when she returned to the ABS-CBN compound.
Kris Aquino returns to ABS-CBN’s film arm Star Cinema.
The actress-TV host signed a contract earlier today, April 20.
In her interview with ABS-CBN, which was also broadcast through Facebook Live, Kris revealed that she will do a movie with Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto.
Their film will be directed by Giselle Andres who helmed the Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber movie Loving in Tandem (2017).
According to Kris, it is part of Star Cinema’s 25th anniversary offering. The TV host-actress revealed that her movie with JoshLia is expected to open in cinemas on June 13.
This is contrary to reports saying that Kris is included in Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla’s upcoming movie.
The JoshLia movie serves as Kris’s comeback to Star Cinema and ABS-CBN.
Kris’s last project with the film outfit was the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival entry All You Need is Pag-ibig.
Other films that Kris did for Star Cinema were: Feng Shui (2004), Sukob (2006), Dalaw (2010), Segunda Mano (2011), Sisterakas (2012), Feng Shui 2 (2014), and Etiquette for Mistresses (2015).
Kris pointed out that it has been one year and nine months since she last went to ABS-CBN’s ELJ Building in July 2016.
Her contract expired in March 2016 and decided not to sign a renewal due to the threat of Abu Sayyaf to her and son Bimby Aquino Yap.
In April 2018, Kris announced that her career is now co-managed by Cornerstone Entertainment, Inc, headed by Erickson Raymundo.
Since then, Kris had been dropping hints that she is set to do a movie with ABS-CBN’s film outfit, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this 2018.
Kris told her fans, "Let's pray that Joshua behaves and Julia will be happy.
"Can I also ask that you pray for my health na kayanin ko ito dahil may playdate na tayo: June 13."
The title of the movie was then revealed: I Love You Hater.
