#Eerie standee is now being displayed at the Star Cinema lobby! Really proud that my first movie with #Starcinema is also an International co-production and the catalyst for a six picture deal between PH and SG. It has always been my dream as a filmmaker to make Filipino stories for export and share it with a global audience. I hope people here and abroad enjoy #Eerie and I hope it makes a positive impact in our growing film industry. Eerie will have a simultaneous regional theatrical release across Asia this March 27! #cre8 @starcinema @beaalonzo @charosantos @juancarloscuenca @iammajoy_ @maxenemagalona @micahtadena @_gillianvicencio @gabbygpadilla
Red told the Inquirer that he was both surprised and excited. He shared that transitioning to English-language works has been one of his objectives.
Red withdrew from sharing details about his future plans. He is currently working on an action/fantasy mini-series, a film about the Black Dahlia serial killer, and a Japanese sci-fi project.
