Richard expressed his excitement after being told that he will star with Claudine Barretto on his next film project:
“It’s really exciting for me and it’s a surprise na makakatrabaho ko si Ms. Claudine Barretto kasi hindi ko na-imagine na makakatrabaho ko siya sa isang pelikula, she’s one of our finest actresses today. It’s really an honor to be able to work with her,” he said.
Richard’s next tv project, on the other hand, is the reboot of the Mars Ravelo fantaserye Captain Barbell. GMA is offering model Georgina Wilson, Richard’s ex-girlfriend, the leading lady role in the said fantaserye. Georgina has not decided yet if she will cross-over to acting and leave modeling.
While working in his upcoming movie and fantaserye, Richard is also among being considered to host the third season of Survivor Philippines. The position vacated by Paolo Bediones is also being offered to Dingdong Dantes and Ryan Agoncillo. Ryan declined so the stint is now between Richard and Dingdong. Richard is hopeful for this project because it will be his first time, if ever the stint is given to him, to host a reality program.
