Julia Barretto to star in debut film

Teen star Julia Barretto is set to make her film debut via the upcoming movie, Para sa Hopeless Romantic, slated to be released next year. The film is part of Julia's multi-picture contract she recently signed with Star Cinema.

In the movie, which was based on the best-selling book written by Marcelo Santos III, Julia will be paired with Piolo Pascual's son Iñigo Pascual. They will be joined by the JaDine love team, comprised of James Reid and Nadine Lustre, who were catapulted to fame via the box office hits, Diary Ng Panget and Talk Back And You're Dead.

In an interview after the contract signing with ABS-CBN executives, the Mirabella star said it is a dream come true for her to finally join the Star Cinema family.

"I am so excited. This has been a dream of mine, to sign under Star Cinema and it’s a multi-picture contract so I’m really really excited," she said.

She added that she'd like to work on rom-coms and drama film projects. "My dream projects -- as an artist, I have a lot -- one of them, siguro I want to do a rom-com since I’m very young also pa. But of course drama also. I want to get to that point as well," Julia said.

Julia also said that they are almost done filming Para sa Hopeless Romantic which is a co-production of Viva Films and Skylight Films, the indie film arm of Star Cinema. Also in the cast are Shy Carlos, AJ Muhlach and Cherrie Gil. It is directed by Andoy Ranay.

Apart from films, Julia, who's turning 18 on March 10, 2015, will also be busy preparing for her debut celebration and an upcoming teleserye next year.
