YES! Magazine's most beautiful, Marian Rivera, is currently doing a horror film under Regal Films titled Tarot. Sources say that this Jun Lana film will open in November.
Tarot is the second movie of Marian with Dennis Trillo after they were paired together in the 2006 movie Pamahiin. ABS-CBN star Roxanne Guinoo also joins this movie as part of their love triangle.
Marian will be playing the role of Cara, a woman who has the ability to read Tarot cards.
As a child, Cara was able to predict two deaths in her family by reading her grandmother's Tarot cards. She soon realizes that the Tarot cards may have unleashed a curse. And in order to prevent the onslaught of misfortune, Cara must unlock the secret behind the Tarot's deadly powers. She struggles to find a way to save her fiance Miguel (Dennis) by tapping the gift passed on to her by her grandmother (played by Gloria Romero).
When PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) saw Marian during the birthday party of Roselle Monteverde last July 14, she described her role in the movie.
"Actually, may kakayahan akong manghula dito. Dapat ikakasal na kami ni Dennis dito pero maraming nangyari. So marami siyang twist dahil sa Tarot, dahil sa lola ko, at mabilis yung pacing," said Marian.
"Si Roxanne best friend ko siya at may hindi kanais-nais na mangyayari sa kanila ni Dennis!"
In a separate interview, Dennis revealed more about his character named Miguel. "Girlfriend ko si Marian na may gift na nakikita niya kung sino ang mamamatay sa pamamagitan ng tarot cards niya. May mangyayari sa akin sa gubat at 'yon ang aalamin kung ano ang gagawin ni Marian. Second time na naming direktor ni Marian si Jun Lana."

SHOW ME THE MANNY. Marian also confirmed that she and Pambansang Kamao, Manny Pacquiao, will be doing a sitcom titled Show Me The Manny. The female Kapuso star admitted that this upcoming show is very different from the usual romantic shows that she has been doing in the past.
"More on comedy siya, nakakatawa talaga siya hindi more on love scene. Parang dito lalabas yung pagka-komedyante ko, ganon din siya. So, pinagsama kaming dalawa," said Marian.
How does it feel about working with the People's Champ?
"Actually, first time at never pa akong nakapanood ng actual laban niya. Excited din ako na makasama siya, at ang pagkakaalam ko pinili pa yata ako ni Ms. Jinkee [Manny's wife] para makasama ni Pacquiao, so thankful ako."
Aling Dionisia, Pacquiao's mom, is also said to be joining the said sitcom.
They are scheduled to begin taping for Show Me The Manny during the latter part of July.
If Pacquiao invites her to watch his fight on October, Marian guaranteed that she'll definitely watch it if she has no any prior commitments for that day. Will she ask Dingdong Dantes to watch with her?
"Kung walang trabaho, sige manonood ako. Kung pwede siya [Dingdong] at pwede ako, bakit hindi? Pwede siguro kaming dalawa."
