Jameson Blake, from indie to mainstream, stars in 'Haunted Forest' with Jane, Maris and Jon

Regal Films has revealed the other day the cast for its upcoming horror film 'Haunted Forest', which is reportedly one of the submitted entries vying for the last 4 slots in the Metro Manila Film Festival 2017.

I think it's the movie that was previously titled 'Hysteria' under the direction of Ian Loreños ('Alagwa', 'Mano Po 7: Tsinoy') and supposedly had Julia Montes, Arjo Atayde, McLisse McCoy De Leon & Elisse Joson and Mr. Joel Torre in the cast.

Now 'Haunted Forest', it still has the same director but with a brand new, equally interesting cast: Jane Oineza, Jameson Blake, Maris Racal, Jon Lucas and Mr. Joey Marquez plus Jay Manalo, Jerald Napoles and more.

After the new cast members were announced, I immediately contacted Jameson, who's in my "hotlist" since his Bingo TVC, to congratulate him on his first ever mainstream film.

The Hashtags member and former PBB housemate already made his film debut last November via the independent production '2 Cool 2 Be
4gotten' which gave him a Best Supporting Actor award at the 2016 Cinema One Originals filmfest as well as a PMPC Star Awards for Movies nomination. His next movie is another indie entitled 'Nabubulok', one of the Cinemalaya 2017 entries this August, and he'll be returning at the Cinema One Originals this year via 'Nay', co-starring with Enchong Dee and Ms. Sylvia Sanchez.

In a message sent to this blog, Jameson said that it's both an achievement and a challenge for him to finally cross over to
mainstream in less than a year since he made his indie debut.

"It's another challenge for me that I'd love to take, an opportunity for me to learn and be known more as actor of both indie and mainstream movies," he said.

In 'Haunted Forest', he will be playing the role of "RJ", and assures everyone that it's different from the roles that he portrayed in the movies and on TV.

"The role will give me a challenge kasi puro Tagalog ang dialogue ko,"
the 20-year-old Fil-Am actor told Mykiru.ph. "But I'm willing to take it. It will definitely help me with my Tagalog."

He and Jon Lucas (as Andre) are best friends in 'Haunted Forest', while Jane Oineza and Maris Racal, who are still fresh from working together in 'Bloody Crayons', play cousins Nica and Mich.

I'll definitely watch 'Haunted Forest' when it opens in cinemas later this year. Hope you'll also watch and support this exciting movie. - Mykiru.ph
