WATCH: John Lloyd Cruz, Jennylyn Mercado team up in 'Just The 3 of Us'
MANILA, Philippines – Last February, Star Cinema has confirmed that John Lloyd Cruz and Jennylyn Mercado is set to work together for the first time in Just the 3 of Us, helmed by director Cathy Garcia-Molina.
A long teaser of the movie has just been released, showing Jennylyn and John Lloyd in several hysterical scenes from this new romantic comedy.
In the movie, Jennylyn plays Aqui, an airline stewardess who has had a long-time crush on Uno (John Lloyd), a pilot. Deeply infatuated and obsessed, she stalks Uno wherever he goes.
One time, however, she confronts Uno and drops a bombshell revelation: she's carrying his baby.
"Nabuntis mo ako, dahil diyan sa bw*sit na ngiti mo (You made me pregnant because of that annoying smile of yours)," Aqui tells Uno, who replies, "Nginitian lang kita, nabuntis ka na? (I just smiled at you, and now you're pregnant?)"
Aqui pleads for support from Uno, and he sets up a condition: if the baby is not his, Aqui will stay away from him. But as the two spend time together, will love bloom along the way?
This is the first time that John Lloyd has worked with Jennylyn. In a recent interview, John Lloyd said that he was very excited about how his film with Jennylyn will turn out.
"I’m very excited, kasi after the film or in this film, makikita natin kung ano ba talagang meron or pwede sa amin dalawa (we'll see what the two of us have) as far as doing a movie is concerned," he said.
