What’s next for Anne Curtis in the movie front? After her 2010 movies “Babe I Love You” and “In Your Eyes” as told by Cesar Montano in an interview – Anne is going to sing on their movie together.
Therefore, if there is any movie project Anne Curtis is going to commit herself into it is her movie with Cesar Montano tentatively entitled “Sa Ngalan ng Pag-ibig” (In the name of Love).Cesar Montano on the other hand hasn’t done any movie (where he’s on the starring role) after “Panaghoy sa Suba“.However Cesar Montano did an indie film around last year, the movies hasn’t been released to the general public but we’ll blog about it later.Ha-ha!
Sa Ngalan ng Pag-ibig movie is going to be produced by Viva Films and CM Productions (And Yes! It stands for Cesar Montano Productions).Sa Ngalan ng Pag-ibig movie is a contemporary,period,musical movie topbilled by Cesar Montano and Anne Curtis.The lead actor will also direct the film, in fact he’s the one who wrote the story.
In the interview he said “Gusto ko kasing ibalik natin ‘yung namatay nating kultura ng mga kundiman songs na sariling likha ng Pilipino”.In fact Viva films is on the search for Filipino Kundiman Songs that is approximately about 50 years old.When asked why he chose Anne Curtis for the leading role?
“Kasi sa istorya, kailangan ng isang mahiwagang napakagandang babaeng mala-anghel ang mukha. Naks naman, Anne ha?! Ha! Ha! Ha!”, he laughingly answered.A follow up question was raised asking how about Anne’s singing voice? Will it be a problem? “Ah, hindi. Definitely hindi. Ako, hindi ko tatawaran ang skill at saka talent ni Anne Curtis. Hindi ko siya ilalagay sa box at sasabihin kong maganda lang siya.Alam kong marami pa siyang ilalabas”
Personally, I’m really excited about this movie.More than that I salute Cesar Montano for making an effort of bringing back the Kundiman songs to life.I strongly believe this kind of songs has to be restored.As for Anne Curtis singing in Sa Ngalan ng Pag-ibig movie, I also agree on what Cesar said “It’s a good vehicle”.In fact, the madlang people always wait for Anne’s singing portion in showtime.Her voice may not be like that of the Song bird.But it gets everybody’s attention like the Cuckoo bird!
As for the title “Sa Ngalan ng Pag-ibig”.I know that there was already a movie with this title.That’s why the tentative title may be retitled otherwise they’ve got to do some legal procedures like buying the title if so ever it was registered or if this registration I’m talking about exists.Ha-ha! What I’m sure is that this movie, unlike the past “Sa Ngalan ng Pag-ibig” movie has a story that does not have “Wives cheating on men”.I also like it because it’s a completely “Tagalog movie” title :p
