Nagkaroon na naman ng bagong isyu sa pagbabalik sa big screen ni Kris Aquino base sa kanyang announcement last Friday sa Instagram.
Dinenay ng MMFF Execom ang request ng Quantum Films na palitan ni Gabby Concepcion si Derek Ramsay bilang lead actor ng “(K)Ampon” dahil “filed out-of-time” ang request.
May nag-suggest kay Kris na mag-appeal pero pinairal niya ang kanyang delicadeza kahit dalawa sa members ng Execom ay kaibigan niya. Narito ang huling hirit ng Queen of All Media.
“To put this chapter immediately behind me, @dereksarmsay07 backed out August 2, Saturday. Atty, Joji communicated with me on August 3, and we reached out to @gabbyconcepcion through @popoycaritativo.
“At midnight, meaning August 4, Gabby said YES. Letter was submitted August 5 to MMFF Committee. I have read the suggestions na mag- appeal, pina-laki akong may DELICADEZA, 2 members of the executive committee are my friends, 1 is my closest friends, kaya hindi ko magawa.
“Tulala ngayon kasi bukod sa hindi tuloy ang isang project na ginusto ko talaga, may isang milyon din na sagutin kami, sa MMFF bond, prod staff, crew and artists…no blame game, but to clear my name, I was concerned about shooting until we had the approval of the MMFF rules committee, but I wasn’t producer in charge…
“As I said, #lessonslearned. Thank God I have these 2, because of them, I still look forward to BETTER DAYS AHEAD. Happy weekend to all.”
Hiningan namin ng komento si Atty. Joji at manager ni Derek na si Jojie Dingcong pero as of this writing, wala pang tugon silang dalawa.
