MANILA, Philippines – Kim Chiu’s next movie assignment, should it push through, is not something to sneer at: Gerald Anderson’s screen partner might soon appear in a Jackie Chan movie.
Contradicting earlier reports that Kim had passed up on the opportunity to work with Jackie in a Hollywood movie, Thess Gubi of Star Magic, confirmed the existence of an offer for the svelte young actress to star opposite the karate superstar.
“’Di po tinanggihan. Go si Kim pero ‘yung project hindi pa sure,” Thess said in a text message to Bulletin Entertainment.
This was in reaction to a report posted by push_mina.com, dated Nov. 9, titled “Kim Chiu, pinalampas ang offer ni Jackie Chan na makasama sa isang Hollywood movie!”
Kim, explained Thess, was personally chosen by the karate action superstar when he saw her photo.
“I think pinili siya ni Jackie Chan nu’ng nakita pic niya,” said Thess.
Kim’s last movie was with her favorite leading man Gerald Anderson, “Till My Heartaches End.” It is said to be their last as a pair.
Meanwhile, Kim’s screen partner Gerald is reported to have called it quits with his rumored girlfriend Bea Alonzo.
A report by Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) posted Nov. 8 said the Gerald and Bea breakup happened during the final leg of the Heartthrobs tour in London last weekend.
According to talk, Gerald initiated the split, and that the break-up was not caused by a third party nor Gerald’s wish to rekindle his relationship with Kim.
Rather, it is said to be Gerald “protecting” his loved ones. Recall that a few weeks back, Gerald broke down at a presscon where he disclosed that he and his family have been receiving death threats. He then apologized to Kim for hurting her in the past.
