Filipina actresses Kathryn Bernardo and Dolly de Leon are teaming up in the dark comedy “A Very Good Girl” to be directed by Petersen Vargas for ABS-CBN Films.
The two movie artists’ previous films were historic and told stories about Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), with Bernardo marking her return to the big screen after the all-time highest-grossing Philippine movie, “Hello, Love, Goodbye”, was screened internationally and received critical acclaim in 2019, and first Filipina Golden Globes nominee De Leon’s 2022 international film “Triangle of Sadness” winning recognitions from the Oscars and Cannes’, among several other award-giving bodies.
