And now you can expect more drama to unfold because Respeto's Palanca-winning writer, Njel de Mesa, has a new movie called Kontradiksyonthat's set to be released in the second half of 2018.De Mesa also serves as the director of Kontradiksyon, which is actually a play on the words "kontra" and "adiksyon," as it takes on the controversial war on drugs of the Philippine government. Plot details are still scarce, but it stars Jake Cuenca, Katrina Halili, Kris Bernal, Elizabeth Oropesa, Paolo Paraiso, and John Estrada among others.
