“Masaya talaga ako sa reunion project namin. Nagkatrabaho naman kami at naging magandang-maganda ang naging working experience ko sa kanila, especially with Piolo.” – Direk Wenn

 

claudineAfter five long years, the movie Etiquette For Mistresses is considered as her big screen comeback of Claudine Barretto, particularly in the fold of Star Cinema. And everyone was impressed with her performance, particularly her good friend, film director, Wenn Deramas. He is considered by the actress as her mentor, especially after their hit movie Dubai, shown several years ago.

At the press conference of the latest horror-comedy movie of Direck Wenn, Wang Family, the award-winning director said, ”Dapat abangan n’yo ang gagawin naming project ni Claudine Barretto. Kung matatandaan ninyo, sa nakalipas na taon humarap sa ibat-ibang pag subok sa buhay si Clau, at eto ay ang naging dahilan ng pag hinto niya sa paggawa ng mga projects.”

As a good friend of the actress, we learned that it was Direk Wen who encouraged her to do movies again. “I told her magaling kang artista, magaling kang umarte. Nothing follows. Yan lang ang sinabi ko sa kanya,” he added. And Direk Wen was right. And Etiquette…proved Claudine right. And she just appeared in MMK last night.

“Mayroon akong proposal na teleserye for ABS-CBN na sana ma-approve ang concept. At pag na-approve yun, okay na sa management na ‘yun ang magiging pagbabalik ni Clau as the “queen” of teleserye.

In addition to that, a movie is now in the planning stage. It will be the return of the tandem, Claudine Barretto and Piolo Pascual, in the movie Pilitin Kong Limutin Ka (working title).wenn deramas

Direk Wenn proudly claimed that, “Naghihintay lang naman e, wala namang nag occupy ng trono, nabakante lang. So lagi siyang may space. Sa isang katulad niya ang talent, at kung ano mayroon siya, laging siyang may espasyo sa industryang ito.”

When asked what is the chemistry between Claudine and him and all their projects clicked? “Since 1997 sa Mula Sa Puso pa iyon, so 18 years na kaming mag nanay. So kilalang kilala ko na si Clau,” revealed the director. “May time pa nung nag taping pa kami, six times a week kaming magkasama, mas mahaba at mas matagal pa iyon kaysa sa pamliya niya. So, kahit ang pamilya niya alam kung gaano kami magka kilala ni Clau, at si Claudine mismo may mga bagay na sa akin nya lang mismo ipinagkatiwala at hindi ko yun ipinagwalang bahala.”

“Ano man ang pinagdadaanan ni Clau ngayon, alam niya na nasa likod lang niya ako. Lahat ng boxing sa buhay niya mapa Rico Yan days pa iyan, o Raymart, alam ni Claudine hindi ko siya iniwan.”

Direk Wenn shared that he’s so happy that the three (Direk Wenn, Claudine and Piolo) of them will work again. And he can’t wait to start filming.

For now, Direk Wenn is busy shooting with his upcoming Metro Manila Film Fest entry, Beauty and the Beastie, with Vice Ganda, Coco Martin and JaDine.
