Claudine Barretto, Kris Aquino, Iza Calzado + more star in Etiquette for Mistresses
We finally know the plot!
(SPOT.ph) It was back in April when we heard that Kris Aquino and Claudine Barretto would be reuniting for a new mistress movie. For a while, it seemed as though Etiquette for Mistresses was going to have a lot of problems—there were earlier rumors of Gretchen Barretto's casting, while Kris temporarily backed out due to contract problems.
Fans would be relieved to know that the movie is definitely happening, and we finally have more details on the plot. Like the controversial book it's based on, the movie will depict the individual stories of different mistresses.
Claudine will be playing a "feisty" mistress involved with a politician. (Fun fact: This is also her comeback role after five years.) We still don't know Kris' specific storyline, but we do know that she's a chef who will eventually have a redemption arc.
Meanwhile, Iza Calzado, Kim Chiu, and Cheena round up the roster of "other women." Iza will be playing the mistress of a popular TV personality, while Cheena is set to portray a wealthy mistress.
There's still no word, however, on who will be playing the partners in their respective stories. The movie is to be directed by Chito Rono (The Trial, Caregiver, Dekada '70).
