During their story conference earlier this year, Block Z director Mikhail Red revealed that the film will feature a group trapped inside a university that has been quarantined due to a ~mysterious~ infection. In order to survive, they have to navigate their way out using makeshift weapons and supplies. JoshLia's characters will be named PJ and Lucas: Julia will play a medical student while Joshua will play a varsity basketball player!
Today, we finally got to see them ~in character~, thanks to Instagram Stories and photos from Mikhail (FYI, he's also working on a student-thriller film ft. Sue Ramirez and Khalil Ramos). Check them out below:
Here's a solo video of Julia in scrubs, looking every bit the med student:
Last year, Block Z had an open casting call for extras, where people who can pass as college students and professors and "act like fast-moving zombies" could get the chance to be part of the "zombie horde."
Block Z will be JoshLia's fifth movie together. We previously saw them in the rom-com movies Vince And Kath And James, Love You To The Stars And Back, Unexpectedly Yours, and I Love You, Hater. They recently wrapped up their first ABS-CBN teleserye, Ngayon At Kailanman.
