If the Easter story tells us anything, it’s that we always rise again.

It’s no secret that Kris Aquino had a rough 2016. She’s still not on TV, she’s still finding her way on the Internet—there’s no real concrete plans that fans haters can look forward to.

Until now.

On Instagram Sunday, Kris Aquino revealed that she was offered a role for a “Hollywood studio movie that will begin shooting soon.”

She quickly followed it up with another post, this time showcasing her suite at The Peninsula in Hollywood. Uh huh, Krissy is already in Hollywood “to meet Chris Lee, my agent to sign my contract.”

Oh, how exciting!

It’s almost comparable to a roller coaster: On March 23, Kris was approached by Grammy award-winning Broadway producer Jhett Tolentino. “He was helping a Filipino-Chinese-American agent friend reach me to ask if I’d want to audition for a big Hollywood studio movie,” Kris narrates.

She had to submit a reel in 72 hours; Kris delivered in 48. “I passed 5 levels of intense scrutiny and was offered a role. It is surreal to be reading the script from a major Hollywood studio watermarked on every page with my name,” she describes the experience.

She can’t yet disclose anything so all we can do is guess…and snoop around.

Now, we’re wondering: Are we reading too much into the following? Kris Aquino posted what’s below on Instagram about four days days. In case you missed the memo: A movie adaption of Crazy Rich Asians is currently being made.

And then the bomb: Preview.ph on Monday afternoon revealed that Kris Aquino has indeed landed a role in the much-awaited movie.

For a year, i experienced rejections. A part of my spirit broke. There were 2 shows i lost because hiring an Aquino for TV was a political risk not worth taking… But something happened March 23, 2017- a Tony & Grammy award winning Broadway producer, Jhett Tolentino contacted me through Cong. Len Alonte and Manang Nene Chan. He was helping a Filipino-Chinese-American agent friend of his reach me to ask if I'd want to audition for a big Hollywood studio movie about to start filming. The pressure was I had to submit my reel in 72 hrs. I felt I had nothing to lose, so we went for it. 48 hrs after Jhett's call, on March 25 we mounted an audition shoot in Manila Peninsula. Thank you ARMADA, Direk Ricky Villabona, Jules Dacanay, DOP Shayne Sarte & her team, Juan Sarte, Nante Alingasa, Kimi Yap, my finance guru Nicko Falcis, Alvin, and the entire Kris Online team, plus Atty Joji's Quantum Post Production for the unwavering faith. We shot, they immediately edited & color graded, both my audition scenes & video BIO. Sunday we sent the high definition material. And we waited. And PRAYED. Tonight I fly to Los Angeles to meet Chris Lee, my agent to sign my contract. I passed 5 levels of intense scrutiny and was offered a role. It is surreal to be reading the script from a major Hollywood studio watermarked on every page with my name. I signed a non disclosure agreement so until they reveal my participation I can't share any details about the movie & my role. But today Easter Sunday- I wanted you to know my story… I pray it gives you encouragement & hope. I am proof that in life doors will shut & there will be heartbreaking setbacks but FAITH in God's plan will open new, unexpected doors. We just need to trust in His Love, Provision, Restoration & Perfect Timing. Grace is unmerited; it's God's Gift we humbly receive with a heart overflowing with Gratitude. To my siblings & sons- I share this blessing w/ you. THANK YOU for being my strength. ❤️
