With the new team-up with Anne Curtis, along with his other projects, 2008 has to arguably be Jericho Rosales' year.
First it was the international movie and soap projects in the US and Malaysia, and then the Jericho Rosales - Kristine Hermosa love team revival, which ABS-CBN management has now announced will be pursued with a Echo-Tintin MMK episode, teleserye, and pelikula. And if that wasn't enough, Jericho, who was on the verge of going laos, has made an even grander comeback with another major project lined up.
Baler is the movie by Viva Films that will star the new love team of Jericho Rosales and Anne Curtis. Apparently, Viva Films was searching for a suitable leading man to pair Anne with, and they have now officially selected Jericho for the part.
"Originally titled The Siege of Baler from the script of Roy Iglesias to be directed by Mark Meily, this is a fictionalized love story set in a very real historical background during the siege of Baler during the Spanish era ... Anne will play a Spanish girl in love with a Pinoy Katipunero na si Echo."
