It seems that Nadine Lustre has been pulled out of a movie. Director Jun revealed this through his Twitter account on March 26, 2018.
In his response to a netizen, Direk Jun wrote: “#SorryNotHappening #MovingOn.”
Another netizen asked Direk Jun to clarify and he pointed out that Nadine will no longer star in The Nurse due to scheduling problems.
He explained, “Scheduling conflict. Been waiting too long and it’s taken too much of my time. Going to Japan 2x to prep is no joke. Time to move and let go and recast. Thanks for the interest, guys.”
Direk Jun followed this up by posting: “My film. My rules.”
Nadine was supposed to star in this horror film that also features Lorna Tolentino. Produced by the IdeaFirst Company, The Nurse is set to be filmed in Japan.
In January 2018, Direk Jun posted on his Twitter account: “So I just heard that The Nurse is finally happening.”
Direk Jun is the filmmaker behind critically acclaimed films that have been recognized abroad including the Paolo Ballesteros-starrer Die Beautiful. His latest film was the Judy Ann Santos-Angelica Panganiban starrer Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes.
