Christopher de Leon is set to star in ABS-CBN’s upcoming series, “Cattleya Killer”, which is based on his 1996 film, “In My Own Hands”.
The actor, who will be leading the said project, will be joined by the likes of stars like Zsa Zsa Padilla, Ricky Davao, Nonie Buencamino, Jake Cuenca, Jane Oineza, and Ria Atayde among others.
In a previous announcement, Arjo Atayde was named the titular serial killer, who is a man who preys on unfaithful women. The original role was played by Aga Muhlach.
“It’s such a beautiful cast. I’m so happy to see everyone on board. I don’t need to explain further, but I’m just excited,” said Arjo. “Remember that I’m just one of the actors for this series and we’re going to do this together.”
To be directed by Dan Villegas and produced by Ruel S. Bayani, the series is set to begin filming this month.
The original film, directed by Rory B. Quintos, revolves around an NBI officer who investigates the Cattleya Killer case, whereby the killer targets unfaithful wives to torture and kill them before disposing the bodies at the sidewalk. Unbeknownst to the officer, the killer’s latest target is the officer’s wife.
