As part of the upcoming horror film U-Turn, Tony Labrusca said he is thankful to be working with Kim Chiu and JM De Guzman. Apart from working with his co-stars for the first time, Tony said he has been a fan of Kim’s even before he joined showbiz.

“Nakatrabaho ko kasi si Bela (Padilla) sa Sino Ang May Sala. Eh best friend niya si Kim so lagi niyang kinikuwento si Kim to us so alam ko na nakakatawa talaga si Kim. Ma-joke siya. Pero matagal na din akong fan ni Kim. Napapanuod ko din yung palabas niya kahit nung hindi pa ako artista. Na-ku-curious nga ako kay kim habang nasa set kami. Naalala ko nung last taping day namin sabi ko, ‘Uy alam mo napapanuod ko pa yung mga dati mong endorsements nung hindi pa ako artista.’ So masaya naman. Masaya lahat sila katrabaho sa project na ‘to,” he shared during the U-Turn virtual presscon held last October 7. 

The 25-year-old actor said he has also watched Kim’s past horror movies. “Oh wow it was an honor to work with the millennial horror queen. ‘Yung mga ibang horror movies ni Kim napapanuod ko rin actually. Yung last ni Kim I think two years ago The Ghost Bride napanuod ko din yun so super happy ako kasi hindi pa nga ako nakakapag-horror na yung main antagonist is multo talaga. So masaya siya and masaya din ako na nabibigyan ako ng chance na iba ibang genre yung nagagawa. So masaya,” he shared.


 

 

Aside from the usual thrills that come with watching a horror movie, especially during the Halloween season, Tony said that it is the story that will make U-Turn a memorable movie for those who will watch it online.

“Siguro dahil kakaiba talaga itong film na ito. Kahit ako nung sinabi nila sa akin na gaganap ako bilang Robin dito sa pelikula na ito, sabi ko, ‘Bakit u-turn? Ano yung nakakatakot sa u-turn?’ Yun yung first instinct ko. Hanggang nabasa ko na yung script and nag-ke-kuwentuhan kami ni direk nalaman ko na kakaiba talaga yung story. I’ve never heard of a horror that was based around a u-turn nga. Eh marami talagang horror di ba? To the point na ang horror nagiging joke time na, yung parang hindi na siya nakakatakot. Pero ito kasi ang ganda nung concept sa storya. Kahit nag ako excited na ako lumabas. Gusto kona mapanuod ang movie namin. Kasi kakaiba talaga siya, mapapaisip ka,” he adds.
