His time as one of the vilest antagonist characters ever to appear on ABS-CBN’s currently long-running hit action teleserye “Ang Probinsyano” opposite star Coco Martin may have already ended earlier this year in explosive fashion. But actor Baron Geisler is not worried about fading back out of the limelight anytime soon. While he is enjoying a nice long break following the production schedule of the primetime soap, Geisler is also privy to certain preliminary discussions. Said talks are about casting him back in the big screen that will start work next year. Even better, it will be an international production.
The Manila Bulletin has it that Baron Geisler is being tapped for an international movie project that will start production the following year. In an article for Push, the actor notes that he is crossing his fingers for the film to materialize as promised by 2020, with the US-based producer having been in touch with him for some time. As befits an international project, filming is rumored to be globe-trotting according to Baron, with shooting locations in the Philippines, Thailand, Mexico, and stateside in New York and Washington DC. Said producer actually visited the country and Geisler only weeks before, and has messaged the actor that she is looking forward to working together with him.
In the meantime, the former “Bungo” of Cardo Dalisay’s bane in “Ang Probinsyano” was able to get into another local film project soon after his time in the series was done. This movie has him being cast alongside Christopher De Leon, Piolo Pascual and Joel Torre under the direction of Laurice Guillen, though the title was yet to be revealed. For his part, Baron remarked that his role in this movie, set in Mindanao, had him learning and speaking the Maguindanaoan dialect. Geisler also described the project as a blessing.
All in all, it has been a mostly productive year for Baron Geisler, who once had something of a “bad boy” reputation in the showbiz industry for certain workplace improprieties and questionable behavior. Only last year, the actor voluntarily entered rehabilitation for alcohol addiction, his second after an earlier period in 2011. At present, he is out and active in work but also considers his own self as a “work in progress” by God. He attributes his success at staying sober and out of trouble to the patience shown by family, friends and workmates, and he hopes the public can see the progress he made.
