How pivotal are Matteo and Christian's characters in 'The Ghost Bride?'

Yes, "The Ghost Bride" is Kim Chiu's first-ever solo film in her 11-years-and-counting career, but she also has two gorgeous and talented men beside her as her love interests - Matteo Guidicelli and Christian Bables.

"Si Christian 'yung kanyang (Mayen) love noong high school tapos biglang naglaho...," Direk Chito said at the Bloggers Conference of their film recently.

He added, "Si Matteo ang medyo may pagka-complicated 'yung sitwasyon niya. Actually meron na silang agreement nung character ni Mayen, to get married, until something happened."

So how did the acclaimed director choose Matteo and Christian as Kim's leading men in the film?

"I wanted to get a leading man na well number one, frequently hindi ko pa talaga nakatrabaho. Si Kim kasi I worked with her sa 'Etiquette For Mistresses,' and then of course 'yung horror na 'The Healing.' 

"I wanted somebody not so familiar with us in the movie. Of course kilala naman sila ni Kim dahil puro taga-ABS(-CBN) din naman 'yang mga 'yan. Pero in terms of chemistry, also on-screen, actually hindi naman msyadong naging problema 'yon kasi they are all serious actors naman, at the same time their characters naman are, it's not really a love story so nagre-rely talaga ako sa performances nila," Direk Chito explained.

"I wanted to get somebody na bago din sa horror, bago rin sa genre na ganyan. Mas exciting din siya for me as a director kasi hindi ko alam kung papa'no nila  ia-act out 'yung sa loob ng ganyang genre," the blockbuster director further explained.

Direk Chito then stressed that Matteo and Christian's characters are not the typical "knight and shining armor" for a main heroine.

"But both men are very important to the character of Mayen in the movie," he noted.

"The Ghost Bride" is slated to be released in cinemas starting November 1!
