After the blockbuster success of their respective movies last year, Xian Lim and Kathryn Bernardo are ready to hit the cinemas once again after renewing their contracts with ABS-CBN’s film production arm Star Cinema recently.
Xian signed a two-picture contract that includes the comeback of the KimXi (Kim Chiu-Xian Lim) loveteam on the big screen this year. Xian and Kim will join the Comedy Concert Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas in one of these movies.
He also revealed that he is set to do a family drama series with “Maria Mercedes” star Jessy Mendiola, Ian Veneracion, and Carmina Villaroel under Star Creatives and that they will start taping in the last week of May.
Teen queen Kathryn, on the other hand, inked a multi-picture contract, under which one of her lined-up projects include her upcoming movie with Daniel Padilla “She’s Dating the Gangster.”
Following the phenomenal success of “Got to Believe,” Kathryn also confirmed that she will soon return to doing a teleserye after “She’s Dating the Gangster.”
Meanwhile, the King of Talk Boy Abunda remains a solid Kapamilya after he renewed another two-year contract with ABS-CBN last Wednesday (April 30).
Seasoned lawyer Atty. Jose Sison and son Jopet Sison also signed a one-year contract with the network to host the return of the legal drama series “Ipaglaban Mo” that presents real life dramatic legal case stories and provides lessons from court decisions to inform viewers of their rights and obligations. “Ipaglaban Mo” was last seen on ABS-CBN in 1998.
