NOEL FERRER: Hindi man nakasama ang My Fairy Tail Love Story ni Direk Perci Intalan sa official 8 entries ng Metro Manila Film Festival 2017, may katumbas pa rin itong magandang balita.
"It is also a very good film and it will surely survive and stand alone when it reaches the cinemas with its own playdate," sabi ng isang nakapanood dito.
Ang maganda pa niyan ay ang isang balita na dumating sa amin mula sa isang insider ng Cinemalaya, na pasok pala si Direk Perci sa kanyang entry na Sa Pagitan ng Dito at Doon.
Kung last year, na concentrate ang kanilang efforts sa matagumpay na MMFF entry na Die Beautiful, ngayon naman, sa Cinemalaya entry nila at sa taping ng Born Beautiful, na magsisimula na ang taping bukas (November 19), naka-focus ang Idea First Company nina Direk Perci at Jun Lana.
Kumusta naman sila ng kanilang dating talent na si Christian Bables?
"No comment ako dyan!" sabi ng Direk Perci.
Tanong namin sa kanya, nasaan kayo ni Christian ngayon? Are you still bent on handling him?
Ang magandang sagot ay: nasa Pagitan ng Dito at Doon!
Meet Christian Bables aka BARBS, ang trending na BFF ni Trisha sa #DIEBEAUTIFUL. People are saying he is the surprise discovery of the MMFF. This is how we came to be Barbs: We were looking for a best friend for Kiray in Regal Films' I LOVE YOU TO DEATH. Ruby Ruby recommended this guy who just finished a soap in ABS-CBN. He auditioned but we werent so convinced, so he left. But for some reason Direk Miko Livelo, Direk Manny Valera, Direk Jun Lana, Roselle Monteverde and I had a change of heart and we quickly called him back. Pasakay na siya ng taxi. Second time's a charm and he got the role. And when we saw the finished film, we were so impressed that Jun and I decided he should be cast in another film somehow. In DIE BEAUTIFUL, he was not supposed to be Barbs at first. But one thing led to another and we wound up without a definite Barbs until we were doing our line readings. That is when Direk Jun saw how good Christian was in the role. He was the perfect foil to Paolo Ballesteros because he was so natural and instinctive. He knew when to throw his lines and how to ride along with Paolo's ad lib. Even his body language complimented Paolo. You felt the friendship was real. And now, people see the magic onscreen and love him so much that he is even trending on Twitter. We are so happy for Christian. It has been quite a journey and he has worked so hard for this. This is his big break! Excited to see what the future holds for him!
GORGY RULA: Tingin ko naman, mas mabuting ang Haunted Forrest ng Regal ang nakapasok dahil ang Fairy Tail naman ni Direk Perci ay puwede pa ring mag-hit kahit hindi sa MMFF mapapanood.
Yun nga lang, bagay sana sa Pasko. Pero mahahanapan pa rin 'yan ng magandang playdate.
Pagdating naman sa isyu nila kay Christian Bables, maaring alaala na lang ang nasa 'pagitan ng dito at doon.'
Ang tanong ko lang, ganun na ba ka-stable ang career ni Christian para magbago na ng priorities at magpakita ng ganung attitude sa kanyang management group?
NOEL FERRER: Kasama sa ini-release na statement ni Christian Bables na, "It was a tough decision made by my management. Ako, as much as I wanted to do the project, as much as I wanted to push harder dahil mahal na mahal ko si Barbs, ang mga taong bumubuo ng proyekto, at ang mga taong sumusuporta at nagmamahal kay Barbs, I guess I will leave it to the management. I wouldn't want to further expound. End of story."
Ang tanong, hindi ba parte sa management ni Christian ang Idea First?
JERRY OLEA: So, pinalitan ni Martin del Rosario si Christian Bables sa TV series na Born Beautiful ng Cignal.
Mas maging beautiful kaya ang career ni Christian dahil sa kaganapang ito?
Pansin ko lang, parehong may konek sa relihiyon ang kanilang pangalan: ROSARIO at CHRISTIAN.
Ang karakter na poinag-uusapan, "lumuluhod nang walang belo," ika nga.
NOEL FERRER: Buti pinayagan si Martin del Rosario sa Cignal TV kahit under GMA siya, or baka hindi naman siya network contract artist ba?
Martin is a competent actor na sanay naman na sa beki na role.
Akala niya ay nakawala na siya nang gawin niya ang Manananggal movie, pero ito yata talaga ang destiny niya. Parang Destiny Rose lang.
Sana may ganun na lang na pagpapakatotoo ang mga artists, pati na si Christian. Wala nang taguan... sa salon!
Happy Foundation Day!!!
