Here’s the official movie poster of LIHIS, a political drama with a bit of gay romance starring Jake Cuenca, Joem Bascon, Gloria Diaz, Isabelle Daza and Lovi Poe.
The tandem of Jake Cuenca and Lovi Poe are back on the big screen not as lovers, but rivals for the affection of Joem Bascon.
‘LIHIS’ is based on the screenplay of Ricky Lee under the direction of Joel Lamangan. It is the premiere director’s entry for the Sineng Pambansa 2013 Director’s Showcase. The movie includes steamy scenes of Jake and Joem. It is quite similar with the popular gay-themed Hollywood flick ‘Brokeback Mountain’ with military guys this time.
Also included in the cast are the mother-daughter tandem of Gloria Diaz and Isabelle Daza.
Lovi Poe is set to star in another drama film under Joel Lamangan for Regal Films. Tentatively entitled ‘LIHIS’, it serves as her reunion movie with My Neighbor’s Wife co-star and rumored suitor Jake Cuenca with award-winning actor Baron Geisler. This is a different type of love triangle because Jake will be torn between Lovi Poe, who will play as the wife and Baron Geisler, his lover. According to news reports, Jake Cuenca is set to have intimate scenes with the two. The movie is set to be released by early 2013.
