Judy Ann Santos will be headlining the upcoming remake of the horror movie T’yanak. “It’s a remake of the original film ni Ms. Janice de Belen and Lotlot de Leon pero it will be featured sa horror film festival ng FDCP (Film Development Council of the Philippines) sa October 29. It’s very timely because it’s Halloween at marami ng naghahanap ng kakatakutan. Sana masuportahan po kasi ang ganda nong festival na pang-horror.”
The actress said that she feels flattered to be headlining the reboot of the hit horror movie. “I’m flattered to be doing it but of course hindi ko naman i-remake kung paaano nila ginawa ‘yun kasi we are different people. Hindi naman kami pareho ng pagtratrabaho but I tried my best na magampananan ‘yung role ni Julie. ‘Yung story ngayon ng T’yanak it’s modernized, the lights are modernized unlike ‘yung 1990s na Tiyanak, siyempre the shoots and the effects may CG na tayo so ibang-iba pero ‘yung pananakot, ‘yung panggugulat parehong -pareho pa rin.”
Judy is currently hosting two reality shows, Bet On Your Baby and I Do, but she stressed that acting would always be her passion. “With hosting kasi it’s very relaxed, it’s all about being beautiful lang, makeup ka lang, outfit-outfit ka lang. With acting kasi that's my passion. Hindi ko naman pwedeng ilagay lang sa back seat lagi ‘yung passion ko. I still want to act pero kung hosting ‘yung trabaho bakit naman ako hihindi sa trabaho,” she said.
Judy will not be headlining a teleserye for this year. She said that she would want to spend time with her family during the holiday season. “Hopefully next year [may teleserye]. Patapos na rin ang taon, kapos na sa oras and at the same time I was busy these past few days with I Do and Bet on Your Baby. I’m doing T’yanak as well parang mawawalan na ako ng oras sa anak ko, sa asawa ko, so I am leaving the whole months na natitira sa 2014 for my family and of course Christmas shopping so ano na muna mommy time, me time, husband time muna.”
