Judy Ann Santos Returns To The Big Screen In 2018 With A Big Bang Starring In Two New Big Movies, A Drama And A Comedy

JUDY ANN SANTOS will be active on the big screen this coming new year as she heads the cast of two new movies in 2018 that both seem more promising than the Cinemalaya entry she did last year, “Kusina”. She’s in the domestic comedy, “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes”, co-production of Star Cinema, Quantum Films and IdeaFirst Company.

Written and directed by Jun Lana, she shares topbilling with Angelica Panganiban, with Joross Gamboa and JC de Vera as their leading men. Some of the scenes were shot on location in Taipei, Taiwan, where the LGBT parade there gets incorporated in the story. Juday and Angelica play housewives who learn a terrible secret about their respective husbands.

Juday’s other movie is the serious drama, “Bayang Magiliw”, where she is paired with internationally acclaimed actor Allen Dizon for the first time. This is under the direction of Cannes Filmfest best director Brillante Mendoza.

Juday and Allen play a Muslim couple in Mindanao. Allen is a soldier who figures in the war against terrorists. While Allen is busy fighting bad elements, Juday stays with their daughter who is fighting her own battle against the big C. Knowing the calibre of Brillante Mendoza as a filmmaker, this will be shown for sure in film festivals abroad first before it’s released locally.

Juday’s husband, Ryan Agoncillo, was involved in a motorcycle accident the other month and it injured his knee quite badly that he had to undergo surgery to repair it. He took a leave of absence from co-hosting “Eat Bulaga” and had a great time spending his forced vacation with Juday and their three kids: Yohann, Lucho and Luna.
