Actor John Lloyd Cruz is on the news again.


Not on girlfriend Ellen Adarna and their rumored coming beach wedding in Cebu, but on his coming movie.


This as former actress-turned-talent manager and producer Anna Bautista revealed she is eyeing John Lloyd Cruz to play noted Filipino painter Juan Luna in a biopic. 


Juan Luna is known for his award-winning works like "Spolarium" which are on display at the National Museum. He is the brother of Gen. Antonio Luna.

It was learned from Anna, who produces movies and teleseryes because of her affiliation with Viva Entertainment, the Juan Luna movie is lined up for production this year.

She said she personally chose John Lloyd to play this ambitious project.

“We’re still working on the script kasi historical, e,” she said. “Hindi kami puwedeng magkamali. 

“This is something na may appeal sa international market. I just don’t wanna concentrate sa Filipino market kasi mas global na dapat ang isipin mo,” she added. 

Since October 6, 2017, John Lloyd took an indefinite leave with ABS-CBN, his mother studio, due to personal matters.
