"The Trial" Will Star Gretchen Barretto, Richard Gomez And John Lloyd CruzThe Chito Rono-directed "The Trial" will resume taping soon since one of its actors, John Lloyd Cruz, has already recuperated following a biking accident.
During the break, Direk Chito said they also took the time to revise the script a little. In the film, Richard Gomez and Gretchen Barretto will play the part of a married couple on the brink of breakup.
Richard is a lawyer while Gretchen is a doctor. It is still not clear what John Lloyd's role would be although reports said he will play the "other man" in Richard's and Gretchen's marriage.
Jessy Mendiola will also be a part of the movie. Direk Chito said the film is based on the way justice has been misused in the story.
In an earlier interview with comedienne K Brosas, she said that she will be a part of the film and she will play the part of John Lloyd's lesbian mother. But Direk Chito said K has been replaced by Sylvia Sanchez.
There were many who auditioned for the role. Even Rosanna Roces auditioned for it. Direk Chito said he asked Sylvia to try out for the role.
He chose Sylvia over K because of their physical attributes and their ages. K is too young to play the part of John Lloyd's mother. Sylvia's coloring is also closer and more similar to that of John Lloyd's. Both are mestiza and mestizo looking.
