Fans are speculating that Liza Soberano is about to star in Hollywood movie, Lisa Frankenstein, after what appears to be some sort of leak occurred on social media.

The movie from Focus Features will be the directorial debut of Zelda Williams, daughter of the late actor Robin Williams.

The announced cast so far includes Cole Sprouse and Kathryn Newton. The script was written by Oscar winner Diablo Cody, who's known for the movie Juno.

Liza Frankenstein is a zombie rom-com set in 1989. The synopsis of the movie that has been released describes it as being about an unpopular high school girl named Lisa who accidentally re-animates a handsome Victorian corpse during a lightning storm and starts to rebuild him into the man of her dreams by using the broken tanning bed in her garage.

Possible role in movie?

So what's Soberano's connection to the movie? Well, she hasn't been announced as part of the cast. However, eagle-eyed fans of James Reid, who is Soberano's manager, spotted a post linked to the movie which tagged the actress.

Jessie Stafford, who owns Los Angeles-based event production company JSLA Events, had reshared a post by Kathryn Newton about the first day of shooting for Lisa Frankenstein. Newton shared photos of the clapperboard and director's chair for the movie set.

In Stafford's repost, she tagged Zelda Williams, Liza Soberano, and Transparent Arts, an artist management agency that represents both Reid and Soberano.

Stafford wrote in her Instagram Story: "Sending you and your team all the amazing energy to kill this film!!!"

That obviously implies that Soberano is somehow part of the team working on the movie. What that role is remains unclear, but fans think that she has an acting role in the movie.

If Soberano indeed has a starring role in Lisa Frankenstein, this would be the Filipino actress's Hollywood debut.

Stafford's Instagram Story post is no longer available to view, but Reid's Twitter fan page, James' REIDers, posted a screenshot of it.

Lisa Frankenstein's IMDB page currently lists only Cole Sprouse, Kathryn Newton and Joshua Montes in the full cast of the movie.
