Broadway stars Lea Salonga and Eva Noblezada is set to star in the upcoming film ‘Yellow Rose’ directed by Diane Paragas.
Lea and Eva, both known to have played the lead part of Kim in the highly-acclaimed Broadway musical Miss Saigon, will also be joined by stars like Liam Booth, Dale Watson, Gustavo Gomez, and our very own Princess Punzalan.
Lea announced the news on her Twitter account, with Eva confirming that the film is definitely happening.

Lea again posted about Yellow Rose just this morning, stating that Eva is actually the one who did the ‘heavy lifting’ in the film. It’s considered to be Eva’s official debut film.
This is actually happening! (To be totally honest, Eva does most, if not all of the heavy lifting. I’m just happy to be a small part of this effort!) https://t.co/IqTPbokedG

Yellow Rose is a film about a 17-year-old Fil-Am Rose Garcia (played by Eva) whose dreams of becoming a country singer gets interrupted when her mother was arrested by Immigration authorities in the U.S.
We’re still waiting for more details about the film and hoping for the trailer to drop soon!
