Director Mikhail Red is dismayed over the intriguing issues to the cast of the “Block Z”, Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto.
“Sobrang exciting ng film kasi we’ve made so many game-changers sa movie, we did something different. Kahit ‘yung studio system, never in my wildest dreams na Star Cinema would do an R-rated zombie movie with these young actors, their first R-rated film tapos maka-cloud tayo ng very petty issues,” said Director Mikhail during the bloggers conference of “Block Z’.
We remembered last year that the team-up of Barretto-Garcia went through a controversy when Julia was linked to actor, Gerald Anderson.
“In fact, guys, no matter kung ano’ng fandom niyo, I hope you all unite for this movie. Kasi when you watch the film, you will realize this is not just the actors, it’s about their characters, doon kayo mai-in love sa characters nila sa journey nila and you will realize na they are all so talented that your be rooting for the ‘Block Z’ barkada to survive and I think ‘yun ang important,” Director Mikhail added.
“Kahit ano’ng fandom niyo, at the end of the day our priority is to survive and lahat ng perspective and indifference niyo is you will put aside ‘yun and magiging united kayo. I think ‘yun and message ng ‘Block Z’.”
