LOOK: Xian Lim Is Writing and Directing His Own Film
It's going to be a love story!
(SPOT.ph) You might know him from his roles in the teleserye My Binondo Girl, the movie Bride for Rent, or even as the voice of Paddington Bear in Paddington. This time, Xian Lim is taking his talents behind the camera as the director (and writer!) of his own film entitled Our Love Story. As you can tell by the movie's title, it's going to be a romance but with a surprising and unique twist.
It shouldn't come as a surprise that Xian would be writing and directing his own film, given that he was part of Batch 17 of award-winning writer Ricky Lee's highly competitive screenwriting workshop. The free program aims to hone the talents and skills of aspiring scriptwriters. Another notable graduate of the workshop is Bela Padilla, who went on to write Toni Gonzaga and Piolo Pascual's Last Night.
There's no word yet on when Our Love Story is going to be released, but there are reportedly plans to screen it at film festivals. Fingers crossed it'll screen in theaters soon!
