Joross Gamboa's directorial debut will follow the story of a man who is allergic to sexual arousal.
Known for his comedic acting chops, Joross Gamboa decided to enter the world of directing through a new iWant original which he developed with his friends.
On Instagram, Gamboa shared how he developed the story for the film which follows the story of a man who is allergic to sexual arousal with his friends Neil Arce, Boy2 Quizon, and Pocholo Barretto. He also revealed how he eventually ended up writing the script and directing the film.
"Noong 2017 nakatambay sa bahay sina @neil_arce at @boy2quizon_ pati si @pocholobarretto naguusap kwentuhan at usapan, tapos naisipan namin gumawa ng Pelikula na tungkol sa Allergy. Anong Allergy? Love? Sex? Hindi... Allergic sa Sexual Arousal! Meron bang ganun? So nagresearch kami meron nga! Pero walang tawag pa dito. Sabi namin kawawa naman. Tapos noon pinasulat nila eto sakin at pina Direk (sic)," he wrote.
Sharing the premise of the film, he added: "Eto ay istorya ng isang lalake na Gwapo, self Love Guru, celebrity writer na lapitin ng mga babae. Ngayon ano gagawin mo para maiwasan ang mga temptation? Ano din ang gagawin mo kapag nainlove ka ng may ganitong situation? na once maramdaman mo ang ‘fleshly desire’ pwede kang magka allergy or worst mamatay?"
Apart from his directorial debut, Joross Gamboa also has a new film with Arjo Atayde, Ketchup Eusebio, and Jessy Mendiola.
Allergy in Love starts streaming on iWant this January 25 starring Ketchup Eusebio, Chie Filomeno, Kat Galang, and Pio Balbuena.
