Is Kris Aquino backing out from her MMFF 2015 film with Herbert Bautista?

Kris AquinoThe Queen of All Media Kris Aquino made a series of intriguing posts on her Instagram account early morning of Wednesday, October 7.  The first 3 posts were cryptic but after her followers started asking questions about what she was talking about, the Etiquette for Mistresses star finally provided hints as to what she's going through on a final post.

Apparently, the controversial actress-host's request for her upcoming movie was not met by the producers.  The cinematographer she particularly asked for can't do the project because of scheduling conflicts.  Hence, she had to say no.

This is about a film, and just 1 request on my end after endless compromising to honor my commitment... But w/ a storyline that would lay bare all my insecurities- the treatment given to me had the harsh but realistic words: "Sya si Kris- ang babaeng laging di pinipili... " And yet, I was a good sport and said GO, let's do it. But tonight I got word that the only person i asked for, my cinematographer just couldn't do the project because of scheduling conflicts- I said NO... His job was to hold a mirror to my heart & soul for you to see in our movie, and I knew I'd be in good hands... And it just couldn't fall into place... In tackling this movie, I was taking the leap of faith of reopening already healed wounds- until I realized tonight, what for? After all my track record of professionalism can't be questioned, my Kris Tv family, close friends & I worked hard to have 68 block screenings for #EtiquetteForMistresses starting tomorrow- I believe I've done my utmost... And now i'm doing what is best for me. Simpleng alaga lang sana sa isang project w/ a pressure packed timeline... It just didn't fall into place. And I know enough to prioritize taking care of me... That's why I choose to walk away. And put myself first, not because I want to be difficult, but simply because I've earned the privilege to say NO w/ courage & dignity. Good Night. THE END.

Kris posted the quote, "Dear Tummy, sorry for all the butterflies. Dear Pillow, sorry for all the tears. Dear Heart, sorry for all the damage. Dear Brain, you were right" with the caption, "This is about a film, and just 1 request on my end after endless compromising to honor my commitment...

While Kris did not mention the film's title, she could only be referring to All You Need Is Pag-Ib9ig, her upcoming film with former flame and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, Bimby Aquino-Yap and KimXi (Kim Chiu and Xian Lim love team) which is due for a Christmas Day release as part of the Metro Manila Film Festival 2015.  The project was previously rumored as not pushing through due to the on and off relationship of Kris and Herbert.
