Dennis Trillo Wants To Work With Star CinemaKapuso star Dennis Trillo said he has always been open about working with Star Cinema, especially now that his mother studio, Regal Films, has problems.
He wished to have a movie with Star Cinema, which release his critically acclaimed movie "The Janitor." The movie saw Dennis as an ex-cop who ran after the perpetrators of the biggest bank heist in the country.
It will premiere in theaters nationwide on October 8. Dennis reported that it will also be a part of the 5th Festival Internacional de Cinema do Porto, which will be held in Portugal from February 27 to March 7 next year.
If ever, it will be the first time for Dennis to attend an international film festival. He is really thankful that Star Cinema decided to distribute the movie for the mainstream audience.
Dennis said working with Star Cinema feels refreshing. It's a totally different experience, especially when he attended the press conference for "The Janitor." He doesn't even know the reporters because it was a different crowd.
"Yung feeling na Star Cinema ang nag-distribute ng pelikula namin, parang nakagawa na rin ako ng pelikula sa kanila."
He is still under contract of Regal until this December. If he wants to do a movie outside the film outfit, all he has to do is to ask permission from Regal.
Dennis will negotiate with Regal again about the renewal of his contract. But it's not just with Star Cinema that he wants to work in, he also wants to make films produced by other film outfits.
Asked who he wants to work with if he made a movie under Star Cinema, Dennis said he would like to be paired with Anne Curtis and Maja Salvador.
"The Janitor" won five awards during the Cinemalaya Film Festival this year. This includes Best Screenplay, Editing and Sound, Best Director for Michael Tuviera, and Best Supporting Actor for Nicco Manalo.
Dennis is very proud of the film because it shows to the Filipino audience that there are still quality movies out there. Also, he realized there are a lot of them who want to boost the level of Philippine cinema.
