Iza Calzado Finds a room in 'The ECho'


Fuzz and Wuzz About Iza Calzado is I believe and I guess over. She was announced yesterday to be reprising her role as the battered wife in the hollywood screen remake of Sigaw. Iza was rumored for so long to be playing a role in the movie which no one could really confirm if will happen. I have checked a couple of blogs and news from the net, since IMDB had listed her not showing the close and open parenthesis sign of rumor. I guess I believe she will be playing the part officially. Hayy...Ang saya-saya. Kewl

According from a blogger in IMDB....

It's official guys! IZA GOT THE PART! She'll be reprising her role in the American remake of "The Echo"!!! Hurray for Iza!!! Iza Calzado gets 'The Echo' role By Janet Susan R. Nepales, Ruben V. Nepales Inquirer

(She was thrilled) was how director Yam Laranas described the reaction of actress Iza Calzado when she learned that she had landed the plum role in Laranas' Hollywood remake of "The Echo." Laranas had fought for Calzado to reprise the role of the battered wife who haunts an apartment. Roy Lee, the producer of "The Echo," agreed, saying, "She was perfect in the original. Why shouldn't we get her for the remake?" The management of GMA Network, where Iza has a TV show, has allowed her time off to film in Toronto starting on August 20, the director said. Laranas sounded just as thrilled for Calzado when he called in London from Toronto to share the good news.
