Quantum Films, Star Cinema, and MJM Productions' romantic comedy, The Girl In The Orange Dress, is their entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival this year. The film is directed by Jay Abello who is known for his successful directorial projects such as Pinay Beauty, Flotsam, and another Jericho-starrer, Red.
The Girl In The Orange Dress tells the story of a girl, Anne, who wakes up after a wild party in the bed of celebrity heartthrob, Rye. The catch is she doesn't remember anything about the night before. The movie depicts the exciting and sometimes crazy lives that celebrities go through and how the new couple overcomes the challenges that fame brings to their relationship.
Check out the trailer below:
During an interview for the film, Jessy revealed that she's never done a romantic comedy before this one: "First rom-com ko ito. I'm really happy to be given this chance na gumawa ng rom-com kasi ang sarap ng feeling."
Jericho also shared that he's confident that viewers will be interested in watching their new film: "Commercial success or box office success is the end goal for every film. I want people to know that I make good films, I'm pretty comfortable with that. With this one, I'm very confident, siyempre confident ako na maraming manunuod ng The Girl In The Orange Dress sa film fest this year kasi we tailor-fit the film to the viewers para its what they wanted to see and I think what they need to see at the same time."
The Girl In The Orange Dress opens in cinemas on December 25.
