Tini Stoessel is undoubtedly one of the most important artists of the moment in Argentina. With their songs ringing so much in Latin America like in Europe, the ex Violetta he knew how to earn a place in the world of international music. However, she does not forget her beginnings as an actress and in 2018 shot a dramatic movie that had Jackie Chan as director and screenwriter. It was never known about its premiere again, but a track already excites its fans.

Three years ago, Tini was invited to the show Short by Lozano (Telefé) and commented: “I was filming in China in Shanghai. Jackie Chan is a beast, an eminence. I don’t know how all this happened to me”. And to alleviate everyone’s curiosity, he told how he came to be linked to the project: “I usually do castings and the production saw one of the auditions I did for another movie with a similar character. They liked it and they chose me”.

As it turned out, it is the first dramatic film directed by the martial arts expert actor. It will be titled The Diary and it will be loaded with romance set in the 30’s. “It was a very nice and learning experience. He knows a lot, he is very humble and very loving”, Remarked once again Martina Stoessel, who made her television debut with the project Disney Channel, Violetta.

Also, the owner of hits like Lie to Me with María Becerra, he stated: “In the movie I had to speak in english, so I learned dialogue to sound as natural as possible and not seem forced”. The film completed its shooting in Prague and, as Tini herself implied, she had scenes in which she must have to sing. However, the project that culminated in 2018 never saw the light and its fans are already beginning to worry.

In November 2020, Tini was interviewed on The Morning Angels (El Trece) and explained: “I guess with everything that happened (the Covid-19 pandemic) It must have been late. I don’t know when they plan to release it, surely shortly. A year can go by, as can five. They are things that happen in the cinema”. But it seems that it would be less than planned: his fans discovered that in IMDb the date is stipulated for 2022 and would have the presence of Kevin Kline, Nah Centineo y Andy Lau.
