QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Many weeks ago, retired talk show host and former presidential sister Kris Aquino hinted on her social media page that she has signed up for a major Hollywood film, which many thought would be ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’
But when the cast of the film project was announced, nowhere was Aquino’s named on it.
Then, in subsequent tweets, Aquino said she is working on a Hollywood film but was not at liberty to reveal the details.
Finally, Aquino announced the much-awaited film project, “Darna Versus Wonder Woman.” She plays Darna while Gal Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman.
The film is based on fictional superheroine characters in the Philippines and the U.S., respectively.
“Naku ha, I’m super excited about being cast in this monumental film and proud to be the first Filipina to land a leading role in a Hollywood film. Our time has come,” Aquino told The Adobo Chronicles.
Asked how her new Hollywood career would affect her reported plans to run for mayor of Quezon City, Aquino said, “Puwede namang sabay di ba? Look at Ronald Reagan and Arnold Swarseneger. Did I spell his name right?”
The film is scheduled to open in the U.S. and the Philippines over the Labor Day Weekend this September.
