Bea Alonzo and Alden Richards are reportedly teaming up for a movie.
According to Pep, the two are set to star in the Philippine adaptation of the 2004 Korean movie A Moment to Remember.
The two stars are set to take on the roles first popularized by Korean actors Jung Woo-sung and Son Ye-jin. The movie is reportedly a joint project of Viva Films and GMA Pictures and will be directed by Ruel Naval.
Neither Viva nor GMA pictures have responded to questions about the project, which is reportedly set to begin shooting in January 2021.
A Moment to Remember is based on the 2001 Japanese drama Pure Soul. It tells the story of a couple’s love that will be tested after the woman is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
Son Ye-jin won the Best Actress award in a Foreign Film at the 15th China Golden Rooster Award and Hundred Flowers Film Festival in 2006 for her role in the film.
The project would be Alden and Bea’s first theatric pairing after they starred in a shampoo commercial in early 2020.
Alden last starred alongside Kathryn Bernardo in 2019’s Hello, Love, Goodbye.
Bea recently left Star Magic, her management of 19 years, and is now under the management of Shirley Kuan. – Rappler.com
