Although she is not keen on doing horror flicks, Julia Barretto recently admitted that she decided to try her hands on such genre for the sake of working with Brillante Mendoza.
The actress, who stars in the filmmaker’s new horror movie, “Bahay na Pula”, admitted to this to ABS-CBN recently, saying that she was keen on working with the award-winning director as well as being attracted to the beautiful story and history that were injected into the plot.
“The day before pitching, they told me Brillante wanted to pitch a project to me. I didn’t know the story yet. Zero clue, but it was a yes right away for me. I knew that right there and then,” she said.
“At the end of the day, it was trusting your director and trusting yourself. That’s the biggest factor why we did what we were supposed to do. It was all about growing, learning, trusting and believing. “It was really a fun time shooting and I was grateful for the friendships we were able to form, especially with the production and Direk Brillante. He was somebody we were able to hang out with even after shooting,” she said.
Julia also stated that she would love to work with Brillante again in the future.
Co-starring Xian Lim, “Bahay na Pula” revolves around a young couple who move into an old house without knowing the horrors hiding inside it.
