The real horror is realizing the “mistakes” one committed in a relationship, quipped Gabby Concepcion, as he was visited this Tuesday by Kris Aquino, who got candid about infidelity when sharing the first details about their new movie’s plot.
“(K)ampon” is Aquino’s entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival 2019. She co-produced it with talent agency Cornerstone, which manages her showbiz career, and production outfit Spring Films.
It is being billed as a horror movie, although there also seems to be ample focus on the love story between her character Grace and Concepcion’s Clark. The tease is that couple will pay dearly for the one mistake Clark made one night.
In her newest video blog post, Aquino explained that she was drawn to the project because it tackles the “many forms of love and there are many types of marriages.”
She said that a couple who has fallen out of love can stay together for a kid, not just because of their concern for the said child, but also because they have “developed a friendship.”
“Iyon ang mapapanuod ninyo dito. But along the way kaya nga siya tinawag na “(K)ampon” at kaya naging horror ito, malalaman ninyo kung ano iyong pinagdaanan at pinagbayaran nilang dalawa ng dahil sa isang gabing pagkakamali.”
“So warning na iyan sa inyong mga lalaki,” she said.
It remains unclear whether that “mistake” was indeed infidelity, but Aquino said she was a big fan of a recent drama of Concepcion, which did tackle the subject.
“Nag-relate ako doon kasi naintindihan ko rin naman na ang mga lalaki ay may kahinaan sa tukso. Parang ikaw,” she candidly teased her co-star in the video.
She also said that she is a firm believer that “it takes two to tango,” and: “Puwede naman may manukso pero it’s up to you kung tatanggi ka o hindi.”
Derek Ramsay was originally slated to play Concepcion’s part, but complications surfaced about the actor’s prior commitments and he was replaced.
Aquino said that they are targeting to finish the movie by October, and that she will join filming around next week.
