Angel Locsin and former onscreen partner Richard Gutierrez will be seen together again in a movie.
One of the popular love teams of the mid-2000s, Angel and Richard topbilled six big screen outings since 2004. The two were most previously paired in the 2007 drama “The Promise.”
In an ABS-CBN article, Angel said she is excited to work with Richard anew.
“Bago ko pa narinig iyong story ay sinabi na sa akin na, ‘Are you okay with working with Chard?’ Sabi ko, ‘Game, anong oras iyong call time ko?’ I’m very excited na makatrabaho ulit si Chard. Sobrang nami-miss ko siyang ka-trabaho,” the actress said.
Same with Richard.
“Iyong nararamdaman ko ay more excitement,” the actor admitted. “And at the same time, I consider this a challenge kasi it’s a big movie and iyong role ko requires a lot from me so I will definitely prepare. Pero more than anything, I’m excited.”
The movie also stars Angelica Panganiban.
In a separate article on Push, Richard said the movie will see a lot of firsts in his career.
“Ang daming first, like first time ko makaka-trabaho si Angelica, and after 10 years makaka-trabaho ko si Angel dito sa Star Cinema. I consider this as a new chapter,” he said.
Richard keeps mum on the possibility of him transferring to the Kapamilya network.
“Abangan nalang natin ang mga susunod na kabanata pero for now I’m really excited to be part of this project,” he said.
The as yet untitled film is also a reunion project for Angel and Angelica, who were last seen together in the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival entry “One More Try.”
The two struck a close friendship following their breakup with their respective partners.
In an Instagram post last month, Angelica told Angel: “Hindi man fairytale ang simula ng friendship natin, naniniwala akong may happy ending tayo.”
“I’m very excited na makakatrabaho ulit si Angelica after ‘One More Try,’ si Richard naman after 10 years sobrang na miss ko siya ka trabaho and exciting kung papano ulit kami sa mga eksena, ’yung mga nuances namin, kung papano namin tutulungan ang isa’t-isa parang ganu’n,” Angel was quoted to have said.
According to the report, the movie will be about sisters-in-law who find themselves torn apart by accusations of infidelity.
