Jennylyn Mercado goes back to work as the leading lady of no less than Senator Bong Revilla in the new film Resiklo, an official entry to the 2007 Metro Manila Film Festival. This is after Jennylyn's bout with depression after being caught in the middle of a rift between GMA-7 and her manager Becky Aguila as a result of Angel Locsin's controversial transfer to ABS-CBN.
But in Resiklo, expect to see a sexier Jennylyn when the film hits theaters.
"Siyempre masaya," replied Jennylyn when asked about working with Bong in an interview with Startalk. "It's an honor to be paired with Mr. Bong Revilla. Masaya dahil ngayon ka-partner ko na siyempre ang hari ng pelikula."
Meanwhile, the first StarStruck Ultimate Female Survivor also clarified rumors that she is running out of funds. She said that she has no financial problems and that she also maintains a savings account.
Jennylyn also commented about her alleged ouster from a movie project that was supposed to pair her with F4 member Ken Zhu. But the role eventually went to Iza Calzado.
"Hindi ko po alam ‘yon, e," Jennylyn said, although she admitted that the script of the movie was already given to her.
Jennylyn also answered the issue about the lead role in GMA-7's new afternoon soap opera Pasan Ko ang Daigdig. It was earlier reported that she was supposed to do the Sharon Cuneta role, but it instead went to StarStruck batchmate Yasmien Kurdi. Jennylyn explained that the role wasn't really for her and as she has said earlier, it was up to GMA-7 to give out her projects.
