VILMA OFF-BEAT IN NEW MOVIE
Quezon City, Aug. 12, 1999 - Multi-awarded actress Vilma Santos, popularly known as The Star For All Seasons" because of her consistent crowd-drawing power, has finally decided on the next film project to star in.
Once again playing an off-beat but close to reality role, Vilma will reprise the role of an overseas worker who returns home to the Philippines with a personality, physical appearance and outlook drastically different from the meek person that she was when she left the country to seek employment abroad.
Ably performing as well in her true-life roles as Mayor of Lipa City and wife of Batangas Congressman Ralph Recto, Ms. Vilma Santos has been very selective about the movies and the roles she accepts.
The new project, tentatively titled "Anak" will be directed by Rory Quintos, whose last work was the popular TV drama series "Esperanza" which lasted two years on the air.
Vilma's last movie was the award-winning Star Cinema presentation "Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa?"
"Anak" will also feature Clauudine Barreto as Vilma's daughter. Claudine is understandably excited over being in the same movie with Vilma for the first time, and is getting ready to pit her acting talent against the undisputed drama queen of Philippine movies.
