MANILA, Philippines - Hollywood actor Dean Cain, who played Clark Kent/Superman in the TV series “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” (1993-1997), will arrive in Manila this week to shoot a movie with Jericho Rosales in the lead role, and also starring Gary Valenciano, Inquirer Entertainment learned on Friday.

The movie, titled “Subject: I Love You,” will also feature Briana Evigan (“Step Up 2: The Streets”) and Filipino-American Dante Basco (“Take the Lead,” “Hook”).

The film is about the controversial “I Love You” computer virus that gripped the modern world in terror in the year 2000. Principal photography started March 3. “Subject” will be shot around Metro Manila, according to Andrei Aquino, vice president for business development of Radiant Studios Inc., the producer.

$5M budget

Radiant Studios Inc. is a subsidiary of Radiant Era Holdings, LLC., a US-based holdings company. It has set a $5 million budget for the film, added Aquino.

Jericho plays Victor, a security guard who falls in love with American deejay Butterfly, portrayed by Briana. Gary plays Jericho’s best friend Choy, the guy who created the virus, which Victor sends through an e-mail. Dean is the villain James Trapp and Dante is Nicky, a friend of Choy and Victor.

Dean will be in Manila for two weeks. Briana, who arrived on Thursday, will stay till the end of March. Dante arrived on March 1.

‘Blown away’

“It’s an open door that I’m glad I walked through,” Gary V told Inquirer. “As to where this will lead, I do not know, I did [pray] for new things to do and here is one I believe will come my way in the years to come.”

Angeli Pangilinan-Valenciano, who manages Gary V and Rosales, said she was “totally blown away” by the turn of events.

She recounted: “Francis dela Torre, the FilAm director, wanted to take Gary and Echo back to the US to work with Dean and Dante. When Echo auditioned for the role, he had no idea about the actors he’d be working with. It brought us joy to watch him being treated equally, as a pro.”

The film, co-written by Jovie Saddul and Dela Torre, may be released at the end of the year.
