Xian Lim, Ryza Cenon to star in a film by Fifth Solomon
Viva Films is set to feature the first team up of Xian Lim and Ryza Cenon in the film Sa Muli under the direction of Fifth Solomon. Last Saturday, a glimpse from the first photo shoot of the said film was revealed — and it was pretty interesting.
Aside from Fifth directing the film, the former Pinoy Big Brother housemate also wrote the story. In a story conference held in January, it was revealed that the story will center on rebirth or reincarnation.
In an interview with PEP, Fifth said he thought of doing a story that centers on rebirth or reincarnation mainly because of the documentaries he has watched on YouTube.
“Kapag madaling-araw, hindi ako makatulog. Minsan, lumalabas sa timeline sa YouTube yung documentaries and may mga napanood ako na bata na four-years old and naaalala nila yung mga dati nilang buhay, babae sila sa dati nilang buhay. Sabi ko, ‘Hala, ano kaya ako sa dating buhay?’ Mapapatanong ka rin, di ba?” he said.
In fact, Sa Muli will be Fifth’s directorial debut under Viva Films. Of course, the actor-director expressed his excitement about the project.
“Actually kinabahan ako noon. Ang ginawa ko, tumungga ako ang isang kape, tapos inilabas ko ang pagkabakla ko kasi mas matapang yung bakla kaysa lalaki kasi iba-iba ang personality ko. Sabi ko babaklain ko ito kasi mga big bosses [ang kaharap ko]. So okay naman ako. Naikuwento ko sa kanila ng maayos,” he said.
Meanwhile, except for the two lead stars, Xian and Ryza, and the director, Viva Films has yet to reveal other details about Sa Muli.
