Arjo Atayde is leading the cast in the upcoming thriller The Rebirth of the Cattleya Killer, based on the 1996 Star Cinema film Sa Aking Mga Kamay, starring Aga Muhlach.
The 1996 film tells the story of a serial killer who preys on women who have been unfaithful to their husbands.
The Rebirth of the Cattleya Killer is a project under ABS-CBN’s International Production and Co-Production division.
“First of all, ABS-CBN never fails to surprise me all the time with all these characters. It’s one hell of a story. It’s one hell of a character, and it’s not normally done here. This is one of the most powerful stories that they’re gonna remake. I am proud to be part of it. Hopefully, the Cattleya Killer could be one if not the possible door to ABS-CBN stepping into the foreign industry,” said Arjo.
Dan Villegas will be directing The Rebirth of the Cattleya Killer, and he will be working alongside the local producers of another Almost Paradise, another ABS-CBN international co-production.
Along with other projects from around Southeast Asia, the upcoming series is part of the 2021 Full Circle Series Lab, a talent development initiative by the Film Development Council and French film company Tatino Films
