Anne falls in love with ‘beautiful, surreal’ Batanes

The way actress Anne Curtis puts it, accepting filmmaker Yam Laranas' offer to topbill his latest thriller "Aurora" was a no-brainer. "I've always wanted to work with Direk Yam in a movie, so after I read the script and loved the eeriness of it all... it was an instant yes," recalls Anne, who had collaborated with the director in advertising shoots in the past. Direk Yam describes the script, written by his wife, journalist Gin de Mesa, as "genre-bending." The director explains that the script is "grounded even if it's a compelling supernatural thriller at the same time."

                One of the many things award-winning actress Anne Curtis is proud of in her newest full-length action film "Buy Bust" would be the hardships she endured while filming the movie. Her stunts that she did all by herself were not for the weak and faint-hearted.   "Ang pinaka mahirap po is we did a 5-day rehearsal for one scene, it was a 3-minute scene na one long shot lang. It was one long shot na pinagpapasa-pasahan lang yung camera," she said at the grand media launch of "Buy Bust" on Tuesday.   "Galing ako sa baba, aakyat ako ng bubong bababa ako ng bubong makikipag-away ako sa bubong...Keep on reading: Anne Curtis says she got punched in the face by a man in ‘Buy Bust’ shoot.....»»

Why Dingdong considers new flick with Anne ‘a big thing’

Almost 20 years after they first---and last---worked together, Dingdong Dantes will reunite onscreen with his former "T.G.I.S." costar, Anne Curtis. But this time around, it's for a romantic film. The coming film, titled "Aya and Sid (Not a Love Story)," is Dingdong and Anne's first project together in which they play romantically involved characters. "It's such a big thing. I appreciate things like this," said Dingdong, who, in his two decades in show biz, has never shot a movie overseas---until now. It was also amusing, he added, to see just how much Anne has grown through the years. "Nakakatuwa ...
