ABS-CBN leading men Piolo Pascual and John Lloyd Cruz are working on a movie for award-winning director Lav Diaz.

This was announced by director-producer Paul Soriano on his Instagram account on Sunday.

The much-anticipated movie supposedly has the working title “Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis” and will be produced by Soriano’s TEN17P Productions.

Cruz and Pascual started shooting their first scenes on Saturday in Sorsogon, Soriano said.

A Philippine Daily Inquirer article, meanwhile, quoted Soriano as saying the two Kapamilya actors “felt strongly about being part of this film, a longtime dream project that Diaz has been working on for years.”

Aside from Pascual and Cruz, the report said the movie will also feature Cherie Gil, Bernardo Bernardo, Alessandra de Rossi, Sid Lucero and Angel Aquino, among others. (MNS)
