MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It was very disappointing for former talk show host and presidential sister Kris Aquino. Her “dream Hollywood film project” ended up being a mere cameo role in “Crazy Rich Asians.” Not even a mention of her name in the official cast of the film.
But not to worry. Aquino hit it big when her locally-produced film made it to the Magic 8 for this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival, slated from December 25, 2017 to January 7, 2018.
The Film Festival entry, “Crazy Beach Asians” not only casts Aquino in the title role, but she also directs and produces this film which is expected to break all box office records.
The film was orignally titled “Crazy B*tch Asians” but it was not approved by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB). “The festival is for all audiences,” an MTRCB spokesperson said.
Aquino expects to sweep all the major awards at the Festival.
