Julia Barretto to be paired with Carlo Aquino in new film


Julia Barretto and Carlo Aquino will be teaming up for the first time in an upcoming film by writer-director Jason Paul Laxamana.

Sharing behind-the-scenes photos from Julia and Carlo’s look test, Laxamana expressed excitement over the movie titled Expensive Candy.

“Can’t wait to do this film with these two talented actors,” wrote Laxamana as caption in an Instagram post.

This will be Laxamana’s reunion project with Julia following the romance drama film Between Maybes in 2019, which starred the actress and her now-boyfriend Gerald Anderson.

Meanwhile, it will be Laxamana’s first time to work with Carlo, “although I’ve always wished to work with him,” said the film director.

Laxamana also previously helmed films such as 100 Tula Para Kay Stella, Just a Stranger, and Ang Henerasyong Sumuko sa Love,among others.

Expensive Candy is reportedly set to air in 2022.
