Cameras have started rolling for the Richard Gutierrez-starrer ''Seduction'' that sees him angtsy and sexy, far different from the type of roles he has done before. The movie co-stars Solenn Heussaff, Sarah Lahbati and Jay Manalo, and is helmed by Peque Gallaga of ''Scorpio Nights'' and ''Unfaithful Wife'' fame.

This early, Peque is all praises for the good looking actor, who impressed the former when they worked together on TV series ''Sugo'' in 2005.

''I was watching him work so I knew what he could do as actor. I've been itching to work with him again since then,'' Peque said in an interview held at Oasis Bar near Paco Park where they shot scenes last Nov. 30.

The director described Richard's character in ''Seduction'' as ''antipatiko'' and ''utak pulbura'' who is torn between two women each of whom has different personalities, ''fire and rain'' as Peque puts it.

''Si Solenn ang 'fire,' kumbaga exciting but destructive. Si Sarah naman ang 'rain' who's very conservative, mabait, life giving. Ang seduction dito ay hindi physical kundi more of psychological. Na-seduce dahil sa pagkatao.''

Peque added that in his upcoming film, ''walang kontrabida'' and that ''hindi ito movie na pagandahan [lang] ng quotes.''

Richard is excited to go out of his comfort zone, saying that he'll do ''everything'' to deliver on the challenge.

''Siguradong magugulat ang mga tao sa mga eksena kasi first time nila ako makikita this way. It's such an honor to be on this set and to be working with such professionals,'' the actor said.

Solenn Heussaff told Bulletin Entertainment that the story of ''Seduction'' is not about ''the other woman'' but more on extremely different and even complex personalities.

''Seduction'' will start screening in theaters on Jan. 30 as the opening salvo film for 2013 of Regal Entertainment, Inc.
