Marami ang curious na malaman ang role ni Arjo Atayde sa pelikulang Buy Bust dahil tumanggi siya at ang direktor na si Erik Matti na sabihin ang karakter na ginampanan niya sa nakaraang prescon nito.

May mga hula na gay kontrabida ang papel na binigyang buhay ni Arjo sa action movie na pinangungunahan ni Anne Curtis, pero walang denial o kumpirmasyon mula sa kanila ni Matti kaya lalong naintriga ang mga tao.

Isang source ang nagsabi sa Cabinet Files na napanood na niya ang Buy Bust at humanga siya sa husay na ipinamalas ni Arjo sa mga eksena nito.

Hindi raw nagkamali si Matti na ipagkatiwala kay Arjo ang karakter na importanteng-importante sa kuwento ng Buy Bust.

Incidentally, kinumpirma ni Matti na totoo ang kuwento ni Anne na tinanggap agad nito ang Buy Bust, kahit sa cellphone lamang sila nagkausap habang nasa baggage carousel siya ng Ninoy Aquino International Airport at naghihintay sa kanyang mga maleta noong March 2016.

“We said we were parking it for now and was thinking of doing a horror project first entitled Seklusyon.

“Then he asked, 'What do you think of Anne Curtis for that role?' I said, 'She’d be perfect for it. But isn’t she doing a Star Cinema movie?'

“Vincent explained that they are putting it on hold for now because Anne wants to do a different kind of project and that’s why they thought of Buy Bust.

“After conferring with my partner Dondon Monteverde of Reality Entertainment [at the luggage section of NAIA], we agreed to set up a meeting for the week after.

“Then to my surprise, Vincent said that Anne is beside him and maybe I can already pitch it to her over the phone.

“And, on a long telephoto bokke lens, I pitched it over the phone in the midst of OFWs and the lousy luggage system of our airport.

“It’s ironic how we do all these formal pitches, preparing these elaborate keynote decks to make a project appealing so we can sell it to investors, only to sell it in the most unlikely pitching scenarios such as being in an airport.

“And the rest is history.

“Thank you Anne Curtis. It took a big star like you to make this happen.

“And you made the right choice too,” kuwento ni Matti tungkol sa pagtanggap ni Anne sa Buy Bust.
