When Regal Films came to Star Magic and made an offer for a film project that will be directed by Jose Javier Reyes (Direk Joey Reyes), actor MATTEO GUIDICELLI accepted the offer in a heartbeat.
During an interview with Matteo last week, he said that it was his dream to do a film project with Regal and also to work with direk Joey – so accepting the offer was like hitting two birds in one stone for the fil-italian racer turned actor, model and singer. He specifically stated that what he really wanted was to be part of Regal Films’ Shake, Rattle and Roll movie, and that too will also come true for this very talented young man since he will be starring in Shake, Rattle and Roll XV in a part entitled Flight 666 together with Lovi Poe. This will be Regal Film’s entry in the 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), so expect this to come out in December.
The stars are aligning just right for Matteo this year, after winning the Best Actor Award for the Cinema One Entry ‘Saturday Night Chills’ in 2013 together with Rayver Cruz and Joseph Marco, the 24 year old hunk also won the heart of Pop Star Sarah Geronimo. And now he’s engaged in a lot of film projects just like Regal Films’ SOMEBODY TO LOVE which took the hearts of many movie-goers last August 20 during its nationwide opening.
Matteo plays the role Tristan Villarama whom he described as filthy rich and in a ‘friends-with-benefits’ status with the role of Isabel Daza. The story goes, Isabel after years of being a F%cK-buddy of Matteo announces that she’s going to tie the knot with somebody else – the dilemma is that the news brought Tristan (Matteo) to a realization that he has taken love for granted for so long and is paying the price for it with new love interest Carla Abellana. In a way, you could say that the title of the movie best describes Matteo’s ultimate goal in the story as Tristan.
SOMEBODY TO LOVE is a film about modern-day romance defining love with all its twists and turns. It’s a film about the lives of 15 individuals whose stories are told all at the same time in a single frame.
Aside from Isabel and Carla, Matteo has substantial interaction with Maricar Reyes (her sister), Jacklyn Jose (he mom) and Jason Abalos in the movie. Other stars of the movie are Iza Calzado, Ella Cruz, Kiray Celis, Albie Casino, David Chua, Jackie Lou Blanco, Natalie Hart, Manuel Chua and Beauty Gonzalez.
Matteo said that working with Direk Joey was really ‘cool’. It was his first time working with the veteran director and found him as very supportive, fast and very fun to work with. Aside from Direk Joey, Matteo also dreams of working with Direk Peque Gallaga and Direk Eric Matti.
During High School, Matteo dreamt of becoming the very first Pinoy Formula 1 racer and then fell in love with singing and acting after getting introduced with Dr. Casanova (Theater Prof) and Ms. Floresca (Music Teacher). But he revealed that it wasn’t after doing ‘My Cactus Heart’ with Maja Salvador that he took acting seriously.
Right now, he’s focused on putting credibility in everything that he’s doing and thankful to everyone who appreciates all his efforts.
