SAMANTALA, bago mag-shoot si Kris ng horror movie niya sa Marso ay magbabakasyon muna silang mag-iina sa ibang bansa at advance birthday celebration na rin niya.
Kuwento ni Kris, ”we’re living on the 11th (February) for a short birthday break because I had to this because um-agree ako talaga, I’m gone for March 4 all the way until Holy Week and the boys can’t be with me.
“So medyo matagal ‘yun for them that 4 weeks of ‘no mom.’ So, sinabi ko na, ‘okay I’ll ask for it, I said a 10-days, para advance bawi already because I know na it’s gonna be a big such adjustment for them na ganoon katagal because I’ve never been away that long.
“And I’m so excited because si (direk) Adolf Alix, the one I’m working with. And I love his works. The Martial Law he did was beautiful (GMA 7 special, ‘Alaala’) tapos when he brought awareness about depression kay Maine (Mendoza) at kay Alden (Richards) and ini-research ko rin ang mga indie movie niya, nanood din ako talaga.
“And the fact that we’re doing a horror movie together and my cinematographer there is Neil Daza who was done all my Chito Rono films. So, it’s a new breed of a director with the DOP who has done my biggest hit, super excited na talaga ako.
“This movie (with Adolf) is a very unique concept that’s why I said yes to it. Nae-excite ako rito, there’s less pressure and I’m the first na ipagpo-produce nila na movie and I’m focusing on the emerging market, so nakatutuwa ‘yun.”
Naikuwento rin ni Kris na may project din para sa kanya sina Chris Martinez at Paul Soriano.
“I took meeting with direk Chris Martinez and also direk Paul Soriano, they’re both pitching for me for it could possibly for Metro Manila Film Festival (2018), but the businesswoman in me, bawal ang intrusions.
“’Yan ang rule nila (MMFF) ngayon, kaya sabi ko, ‘sayang.’ Because I think the festival wants to maintain artistic integrity, so sabi ko, ‘can you consider another date?’ I’m excited because both directors are (good), direk Chris wrote ‘Sukob’ and I was just so impressed with ‘Siargao’. And sinuman sa kanila because I had only one body, so kung sinuman sa kanila ang ‘one’ that I can choose, so I’m excited,” saad pa.
Isa pang looking forward si Kris ay ang gaganaping Red Carpet Premiere ng Crazy Rich Asians ng Warner Brothers.
“Doon ako nae-excite kasi we were told by Warner Brothers na I’m invited to attend several Red Carpet premiere for ‘Crazy Rich Asians’, so sabi ko, ‘OMG!.’ August pa naman ‘yun, so mga May ko na paghahandaan, pero na-excite ako, minsan lang ‘yun. And the fact na sinabing, ‘we hope that she (Kris) can block all her schedule for these dates.’ So, na-excite talaga ako with the possibilities that open up (for me).”
Supposedly sa New York, USA sana ang tungo ng mag-iina, pero hindi sila pinayagan ng business manager at finance guru ni Kris na si Nicko Falcis.
“But Nicko did not allow because of the jetlag because pagbalik ko rito, may three-day (rest) tapos trabaho na. So, roon kami pupunta sa (bansa) na hindi ako maje-jet lag. So, it’s a six hours difference or actually 18 hours ahead of them so kung iisipin, parang napuyat ka lang and madaling mag-adjust talaga and compromise ‘yun kasi maraming opportunities na nakapanghihinayang kung aantok-antok ako pag-uwi,” pahayag ng Reyna ng Online World at Social Media.
