"Balatkayo" Pairs Up Aiko Melendez and James Blanco; The Cast Reacts On White Lies

"Balatkayo" soon with Aiko Melendez, James Blanco, Nathalie Hart, and introducing Bryann Foronda

Another noteworthy film will start rolling from BG Productions International (makers of Lihis, Lauriana, and upcoming films "Bigkis" Iadya Mo Kami" "Homeless" Sekyu" "Child Haus" among others) written by Ruel P. Montanez and will be directed by Neal Tan titled "Balatkayo" (It was cleared during the story conference that this is not inspired from the song of Anthony Castelo. Direk Neal was applauded internationally for his film "Ataul For Rent" will this be his ticket again to be recognized? Its edgy story line could be appealing for international festivals.)

The film stars James Blanco, Nathalie Hart, Bryann Foronda, Rodjun Cruz and international best actress awardee Aiko Melendez. 

Its story will revolve an OFW couple (the guy is working in Dubai played by James while his wife in Taiwan as portrayed by Aiko) who who are engaged in extra-marital affairs on the respective countries they're working at. Nathalie and Rodjun will play their lovers in other countries, respectively. (I'm looking forward for the acting showdown that the actors will exhibit in the film. Aiko's enthusiasm and excitement was really evident during the story conference. Initially, there will be like two scenes for the main leads in the film but both requested for more scenes to be added. In the same event, it was granted and I'm glad it is.)

They will return to the Philippines to rescue their son who will be involved in a sex scandal that caused the death of his girlfriend. The productions is still currently on search as to who will play this very important role. The're looking at tapping veteran actress Boots Anson-Roa to play his doting grandmother.

The film will start shooting this September and might have a play date sometime in November this year.
