Vilma stars in 'The Healing'-A A +A
Saturday, June 30, 2012
STAR for All Seasons Vilma Santos is set to celebrate her 50th year in showbiz through a movie produced by ABS-CBN and its film outfit Star Cinema.
Dubbed as "The Healing," the film will be the Batangas governor's first-ever suspense horror movie.
Vilma said that it is the perfect project for her after she did "In My Life" three years ago.
"Excited ako sa challenge ng 'The Healing' kasi bago sa akin ang horror at dahil hindi rin naman na ako madalas makagawa ng pelikula, minarapat ko nang bigyan ang viewers ng kakaiba," she said.
In the said project, Vilma shares the silver screen with Primetime Princess Kim Chiu. This is their first project together and the veteran actress said the Cebuana beauty will go a long way in showbiz.
She's also very happy to be under the helm of known movie director Chito Roño.
"Matagal ko nang pinakahihintay ang ganitong proyekto at masayang-masaya akong ginagawa na namin siya. With the undeniable top caliber of Star Cinema, Direk Chito, and our award-wining cast, how can I go wrong."
Joining Vilma and Kim in the movie are Pokwang, Mark Gil, Martin del Rosario, Allan Paule, Cris Villanueva, Daria Ramirez, Ces Quesada, Ynez Veneracion, Simon Ibarra, Abi Bautista, Joel Torre, Chinggoy Alonso, Mon Confiado, and Carmi Martin.
"The Healing" opens July 25 in theaters nationwide. (Sunnex)
