Kapamilya stars Liza Soberano, Anne Curtis, Erich Gonzales and Yassi Pressman are going to prove to everyone that no guy should mess with them as they star in their own action films this year.
Yassi Pressman for Born Ready. She is currently shooting the action-drama film. Pressman has been starring in the longest-running ABS-CBN action-serye “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” opposite Coco Martin. But this time, the audience will get to see her in action via fight routines in a film produced by Max Topplin, written and directed by Luch Balao, from Plus Six Three Pictures.
We Will Not Die Tonight has Erich Gonzales. Director Richard Somes and Gonzales collaborate once again in this violent action thriller film about Kray (Gonzales), a stuntwoman, an aspiring actress and all around racketeer who can’t seem to have a break – in her career and life. Like anybody who lives from hand-to-mouth every day, Kray’s only option is to remain relentless in aspiring to hit the jackpot someday. Ramil (Alex Medina), her cheating ex-boyfriend calls with good news one night – a ‘one time, big time’ chance to score some money, but not without risk. Kray agrees and meets up with the whole gang: Jonesky (Thou Reyes), Rene Boy (Nico Dans), Che-che (Max Eigenmann), and Ramil.
Kray’s group meets Bangkil (Paolo Paraiso) and his legion, and soon realizes they plunged themselves into something far more dangerous than what they are up for: a standoff ensues. Now, it’s a matter of survival and not a question of morals anymore. But it is too late for Kray and her team to escape? Will they survive this seemingly endless chase and live another day? Or will the lives of Kray’s group end in the misfortune of a botched deal gone into a total haywire?
