EXCERPT FROM ESQUIRE PHILIPPINES JUNE 2012
Some items highlighted for emphasis. Eto na ang pinakamahabang info so far about The Mistress. Am even more excited now after reading about John Lloyd's reasons for doing the project. Sana promo na ng pelikula!!!
...“You know once in a while you will stumble upon a project, upon a story that would excite you,” he began. We were on the subject of the things that spark his eagerness. “Or even this one, the shoot we just did for your magazine. I think this is something done in good taste. I think that’s very important, not just for my present stature, to be with these creative people, and to be moving around them, in their imagination, is something that is very special to me.”
The other project he stumbled upon, he would later tell us, is his reunion movie with Olivia Lamasan, who helmed his award-winning turn as a gay man at odds with his lover’s mother in the 2009 film In My Life. The movie, this new one, is called The Mistress, a drama about [spoiler start]a doomed love affair between a worldly young lothario (Cruz) and a beautifully feisty young woman (Bea Alonzo) already committed to an older man. (Ronaldo Valdez).[spoiler end]
It wasn’t merely the chance to work again with Lamasan that convinced Cruz to temporarily excuse himself from the ongoing production of his long-delayed reunion movie with Sarah Geronimo, the second installment to the wildly successful romantic comedy A Very Special Love. “The script is flawless,” he says of The Mistress screenplay. He was so taken by the story he cried towards the end of the first script reading. It didn’t matter that he was only replacing Derek Ramsey, who had already shot a few scenes before making the decision to move to another network, TV5. Or that Cruz is actually the third actor to be associated with the project, the first being Sam Milby.
While he knew he liked the project, “He was so unsure if he could pull it off,” says Vanessa Valdez, the scriptwriter (A Love Story). “’This is so not me,’ sabi niya. He doesn’t think he’s sexy. The script was looking for a very self-confident man, well-traveled, with a natural swagger, sexy. That’s why we found the idea so exciting because he hasn’t done it yet.” Cruz’s first few shooting days, however, reports Valdez, confirmed that the actor nailed the part, based on the reactions from the on-set crew. “He has always played the good boy, the guy who is makulit, sweet when he tries to win the girl. But here he’s an adventurer, a man who does what he wants and doesn’t care.”
Sana po, wag muna natin i-discuss yung part ng article na naka-spoiler. Pag may trailer na, hahahahaha! Let's keep the spoilers hidden please.
Wow! Thanks for sharing jojovill! So it was really the script/story that convinced him to take on the part. Sounds good to me!
Something new from Bea and something new from John Lloyd. Exciting!
august siguro to, july na daw ang THE HEALING... pero parang kaunti pa lang nashoot dito eh... baka mauna pa the reunion?

honestly, medyo naaalangan ako na si Ron Valdez yung guy.. parang too old pero baka naman ganun talaga ang kailangan sa story kaya magtitiwala ako sa writers at kay Inang Olive.
