28 Feb – Director Sigrid Bernardo said that she was a little disappointed that Claudine Barretto did not end up in her new movie, "Untrue".

As reported on Push, the filmmaker who spoke about the new film recently, revealed that she actually wrote the script thinking of Barretto as the star.

"I really did it for her. It's really sad. I don't know what the issue is and don't want to intervene. I just had to move on and be like, okay, who's the next actor?" she said.

Bernardo later found Barretto's replacement in actress Cristine Reyes.

The director also stated that Barretto was originally excited for the project, and that they were looking forward to working with each other.

"It really is a pity. But it's okay. I'm sure there will be something else. I am still excited about working with her one day," she added.
