On April 4, examiner.com published a report saying that Filipina international singer Charice was spotted in Boston over the weekend while shooting a Hollywood film. The film is titled Here Comes the Boom.
According to the website, Here Comes the Boom will be released in July 2012.
Earlier today, April 6, Grace Mendoza, Charice’s manager, confirmed that her ward is currently filming her second Hollywood film.
She told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that information about the film was publicly released only yesterday, through an article published in magnustoday.net.
Charice is expected to star in this action-comedy movie that will be topbilled by Mexico-born actress Salma Hayek and comedian Kevin James.
The movie is about a music teacher (played by Kevin) who becomes a mixed martial arts fighter in order to raise money that can help save his school’s music program.
Completing the cast are Henry Winkler, Joe Rogan, Bas Rutten, Alexandra Bussel, Germaine de Leon, and Shelly Desai.
Here Comes the Boom will be helmed by Frank Coraci.
Coraci previously directed Adam Sandler in movies such as The Wedding Singer (1998), The Waterboy (1998), and Click (2006).
There are still no details about the role to be played by Charice, but the Internet Movie Database website reveals that her character’s name is Malia.
In 2009, Charice had a cameo role in the live-action animation film Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.
As the rival of the chipmunks in a singing competition, she performed Alicia Keys’ "No One."
Meanwhile, Charice is slated to appear in Glee Season 2’s Episode 17, titled "A Night of Neglect." (CLICK HERE to read related article)
