Bimby Set To Star In Launching Movie With Ryzza Mae DizonJames Yap Jr, more popularly known as Bimby, would be a movie star soon. This was the news delivered by his excited and proud mother Kris Aquino during one of the episodes of her daily morning talk show ‘Kris TV,’ aired over ABS-CBN on weekdays.
Aquino could not hide her excitement over the proposed movie project, which would launch her younger son’s film career. Although she did not disclose much information about the project, Aquino revealed that the film would be released sometime this year.
But Aquino did not have to divulge information in her TV show. Reports are already circulating in the local showbiz landscape that the big movie project would be one of the eight official entries to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival, the list of which was released in June 18.
Movie with Ryzza
According to reports, Bimby’s launching movie has a tentative title of ‘Tory and My Little Bossing.’ It would be co-produced by Aquino with Vic Sotto’s M-Zet Poductions and Tony Tuviera’s APT Entertainment. The movie would reportedly be co-starred by the current child sensation Ryzza Mae Dizon.
As early as last month, Aquino has already been throwing hints about her son’s movie project. In one of her show’s past episodes, Aquino revealed that she was very excited when she got a call from APT Entertainment about the proposed project. She added in jest that she had readily agreed with the idea as long as there is assurance that Bimby would be the lead star.
The Queen of All Media has always been vocal about her intention to be a stage mother for her son. She plans to be a hands-on mother especially when it comes to her son’s budding movie career. In her usual perky tone, she continued telling her audience that she warned ABS-CBN about her plans to take many breaks from her TV commitments.
Aquino intends to be always present in the shooting sessions of her son. She plans to set her schedule clear whenever there is a scheduled shooting for the new movie. Bimby is currently under a talent management contract with Star Magic, where he is in the history of the ABS-CBN arm as its youngest contract star ever.
Meanwhile, Aquino also expressed her happiness over the progress of the endeavors of her older son Joshua (with Phillip Salvador). Joshua recently turned 18 years old. The celebration was held in a luxury cruise. Aquino said she is overwhelmed by the thought that her firstborn is now an adult. She revealed that she would always be a proud ‘mama’ especially because Joshua is exhibiting positive changes in his development lately.
Bimby is a celebrity in his own right. Even as a young child, he has already been making headlines especially because he often gets involved with family affairs. In 2010, he drew attention when he mentioned Senator Manny Villar’s name in a campaign sortie of then running president Noynoy Aquino. Just recently, he was the center of the ‘abuse issue’ between his parents, Aquino and basketball star James Yap Sr.
