July 11, 2011, 11:17amMANILA, Philippines -- Judy Ann Santos’ comeback movie will push through via the Metro Manila Film Festival entry “My House Husband” under OctoArts Films opposite real-life hubby Ryan Agoncillo.
The news quashed previous speculations that the said project was shelved because of delay in shooting in observance of festival deadlines.
However, producer Orly Ilacad clarified that everything was going through as planned.
“Definitely tuloy ang ‘My House Husband,’” affirmed Orly. “Shoot starts sometime in August. It’s not a special effects movie so we have more than enough time to finish by the end of October or early November.”
Catherine Ilacad of OctoArts Films added that the script and casting are on their final stages already. Joining Judy Ann and Ryan is Eugene Domingo. The script is written by Mel del Rosario.
“My House Husband” reunites Ryan and Judy Ann with director Joey Reyes, who helmed their previous MMFF box office hits “Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo” and “Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo”
“Hindi ko pa nababasa yung story ng ‘My House Husband’ pero kampante kami na basta si Joey Reyes ang director. Maganda na ang team-up naming tatlo and alam naman naming magandang proyekto ang ibibigay niya sa amin,” said the actress.
Another light project in the works for her is her TV show “Junior Master Chef.” She still doesn’t know when it will air but they have already taped two weeks’ worth of episodes.
Judy Ann is also cashing in on TV commercials. Her latest is with husband and daughter Yohan for Purefoods Tender Juicy hotdog.
The TVCs that Yohan did are signs that she and Ryan are more open now to accept endorsement projects for Yohan.
“As long as it won’t affect Yohan’s studies and the four-hour working hours will be followed, it will be fine with us, ” she said.
