Another project is underway for actor Xian Lim, this time, with breakthrough actress and vlogger Alex Gonzaga, confirmed Viva Films on Instagram last Thursday night.
Following the launch of his romantic drama film, Hanggang Kailan, opposite fellow Viva artist Louise delos Reyes, Xian recently met with Alex and director RC delos Reyes for the story conference of their upcoming flick titled Love The Way You Lie.
RC is the same filmmaker behind the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival official entry Mary, Marry Me, top billed by Alex herself together with her sister Toni Gonzaga.
Talking to PEP.ph, Alex said that her friendship with the actor’s girlfriend, fellow Pinoy Big Brother host Kim Chiu, definitely helped in setting the mood between her and Xian as a love team.
"Friend ko si Kim. Lagi kong nakakasama,” she said. “Parang may affiliation kami ni Xian sa isa't isa. Hindi kami strangers.”
"Ang maganda sa personality ni Alex, the way she is, parang basag na kasi agad yung wall,” Xian followed. “Kung meron man wall, binabasag niya agad. Kapag may nararamdaman siya, binabasag niya agad."
Love The Way You Lie, according to RC, is an adult movie with a touch of comedy.
"Noong nag-uusap kami kung sino ang leading man, naisip talaga namin si Xian,” he said.
“Dahil nandoon na siya sa level na puwede nang gumawa ng isang mature adult-romance comedy na hindi ko pa nakikita before,” he added.
