Sexy star Christine Bermas on Tuesday, July 26, can feel the pressure knowing that her film Scorpio Nights 3 is a remake of the hit Peque Gallaga classic movie.
To add to the pressure, Joyce Jimenez starred in that 1999 movie together with Albert Martinez. AJ Raval was also the first choice to star in this 2022 remake.
After Scorpio Night 3‘s premiere night, Bermas said, “Ako, oo, siyempre. Na-pressure ako noong in-offer sa akin [itong Scorpio Nights 3].”
The sexy actress, though feeling overwhelmed, was thankful that Viva chose her to lead the Lawrence Fajardo movie.
“Pero natuwa ako and alam mo ‘yung feeling na naghahalo ang emotions mo and super thankful and grateful na binigyan ako ng chance ng Viva and nag-trust sila na gawin ko itong project.”
Considering that there were three different versions of Scorpio Nights, Bermas stressed that she and her co-actors did their best to make their movie a “good one.”
“Hindi natin maiiwasan sa tao, kasi siyempre part part iyan eh. So iba ang sa Scorpio Nights 1, ‘yung original, iba rin ang Scorpio Nights 2, at iba rin ang sa Scorpio Nights 3. So hindi natin maiiwasan sa tao na iko-compare at iko-compare talaga nila ‘yung film.
“Pero ako, ang masasabi ko is binigay namin ang best namin dito sa film, ginawa namin ang best namin dito sa film. I mean hindi naman sa point na kailangang higitan ang 1 or 2 ‘di ba? At least nagawa mo ng maayos itong film na part 3.”
In this remake, Bermas also stars alongside seasoned actor Mark Anthony Fernandez and award-winning indie actor Gold Aceron.
Scorpio Nights will be available on Vivamax beginning July 29.
