John Lloyd Cruz's Next Project? A Tricycle Booking App
For his latest project, John Lloyd Cruz will be launching his own tricycle booking application. The app that the 37-year-old actor plans to start in Cabuyao City, Laguna will be called Trike Now.
On Monday, Cruz personally presented his Trike Now project to city officials. According to a statement from the City Information Office (CIO) of Cabuyao, the actor discussed his own project in front of Cabuyao mayor Rommel Gecolea.
The actor-turned-politician Laguna first district representative Dan Fernandez and officials of the tricycle operators and drivers ’association (TODA) of Cabuyao were also present to hear Cruz’s project proposal. Photos taken from the day of Cruz's project presentation were posted on the Cabuyao CIO Facebook page.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sent a message to the Cabuyao city government to find out what the status of the project John Lloyd presented for the city is. However, no response was received at the time the report was published.
Aside from launching an app that will make it easier for Cabuyao's citizens to ride a tricycle, Cruz's return to showbusiness has also been confirmed. It was on January 27 that director Olivia Lamasan, managing director of ABS-CBN Filsm, confirmed that Cruz will return to film this year. A reunion movie with Bea Alonzo is set to be the actor's next project, with the title No Goodbyes.
According to Lamasan, film production will begin in the "first quarter of this year." She said: "It’s a collaboration with [Cruz] himself and Bea. So, tuloy iyan, tuloy ang project. That’s one of the big projects that we have this year."
The project is the signal for the return of showbiz by Cruz, who has been on an indefinite leave to Star Magic—ABS-CBN's talent management agency—since October 2017.
