Nadine Lustre will no longer be starring in the horror flick "The Nurse," its director, Jun Robles Lana, said on Twitter Tuesday.
Lana, the filmmaker behind box-office hits such as "Die Beautiful" and "Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes," was responding to a question from a fan of Lustre about the upcoming project.
Using the hashtags #SorryNotHappening and #MovingOn, Lana went on to explain that a "scheduling conflict" set back the progress of "The Nurse."
Lana said: "Been waiting too long and it’s taken too much of my time. Going to Japan 2x to prep is no joke. Time to move and let go and recast. Thanks for the interest, guys."
He followed up that tweet with: "My film. My rules."
"The Nurse," which was billed as a solo starrer for Lustre after a string of romance flicks with real-life boyfriend James Reid, was first announced in August 2017.
Viva Entertainment, the company managing Lustre and the co-producer of "The Nurse," has yet to address Lana's statement, nor has it confirmed that the actress will no longer be part of the film
Lustre recently wrapped up filming for "Never Not Love You," her sixth film co-starring Reid. The romance-drama, written and directed by their frequent collaboratoer, Antoinette Jadaone, will hit cinemas nationwide on Black Saturday.
