Here's Your First Look at Mikhail Red's Zombie Thriller Starring JoshLia
It also stars Ian Veneracion and Maris Racal, to name a few.
(SPOT.ph) Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia (a.k.a. JoshLia) last made their fans swoon when they appeared in 2018's I Love You, Hater with Kris Aquino. They also made fans cry with 2017's tear-jerking drama, Love You to the Stars and Back. But it looks like Block Z, their upcoming film with acclaimed director Mikhail Red will get your hearts racing because the first photo of the love, posted on Red's Instagram page, already looks intense.
In the photo, Barretto and Garcia are all bloodied up—with the badass-looking Barretto holding an axe. Red also reveals the names of Barretto and Garcia's characters: PJ and Lucas.
Block Z was announced back in June 2018, when Red posted a photo with Barretto and Garcia on Instagram. Not much has been revealed about the story, but Red says, "There will be blood. And zombies...lots of zombies."
The star-studded cast of the film also includes Ian Veneracion, Ina Raymundo, McCoy de Leon, Maris Racal, and Dimples Romana.
Aside from Block Z, Red—who directed the award-winning Birdshot—is also set to release the sociopolitical thriller Neomanila and the horror flick Eerie in March. He's also working on a crime film called Dead Kids, which stars Sue Ramirez and Khalil Ramos. The director has also signed on to direct a remake of the classic film Magic Temple.
