ABS-CBN broadcast/journalist Atom Araullo is set to star in a comeback film of critically-acclaimed director Mike De Leon.

According to entertainment columnist Noel Ferrer, Araullo has agreed to star in the movie Citizen Jake because of the Master Filmmaker (De Leon). Citizen Jake refers to "the world of citizen journalists, social media and politics" which the director described as "hybrid film of sorts".

De Leon whose works include unforgettable masterpieces like Batch ‘81, Kisapmata, Itim, Sister Stella L, Kakabakaba­kaba, Kung Mangarap Ka’t Magising, and Bayaning Third World in 2000 will start filming next year - 2017.

"I have a real journalist playing a fictional journalist­ in an investigative crime ­story with political overtones," De Leon said.

For Atom's part, who would have thought that he who has retired his reportorial job in ABS-CBN, would try an acting job? Before becoming one of the youngest top journalist in the country, Atom was a graduate of BS Applied Physics at the Univeristy of the Philippines.

“I just couldn’t say NO to Mike de Leon. I am taking this leap of faith because I believe in his ability to produce films of exceptional quality that are always imbued with social relevance”, he said.

Atom had an acting background in Ateneo Children’s Theater.

By this time, Atom is finalizing the script of the film and Direk Mike said that it might be his last movie. The team is also looking for an actress who would play as his love interest in the movie.

OMG! Sarah Geronimo shocked after she caught Matteo Guidicelli in bed with other guys

Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo got the shock of her life when she tried to surprise her boyfriend Matteo Guidicelli who's currently in Cebu for his Matteo Made In Cebu concert.

Sarah caught Matteo with two other guys - one of which is his concert director Rowell Santiago - in bed where one of his hands was found at the top of his director's chest.

Seems legit?

Well, that's the story this #MannequinChallenge video wants to tell which was uploaded by @igramsarahg on Instagram. Matteo's group has jumped into the latest craze on the Internet. Aside from this, they have uploaded a few more videos on Instagram.

The video, somehow, has truthiness in it as Matteo wasn't really expecting for Sarah G to come for his concert. In one of his interviews, Matteo was asked if Sarah would come and he answered,

“I don’t know if she is coming because she is in Japan. She is busy. Siguro if she is not busy. We’ll see."
