Confirmed: Bea Alonzo, John Lloyd Cruz to star in new movie
MANILA, Philippines – Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz fans, there's going to be something new to look forward to from the hit love team very soon!
At the press conference for the One More Chance DVD release Friday, July 31, the pair confirmed that they're going to be starring in a new movie, with director Cathy Garcia-Molina at the helm. The film may be shown sometime this year, but there are very few details surrounding the story.
“ But let me just clarify na to this day na hindi pa rin, I think bahala na sila Direk Cathy magpaliwanag na, but I’m sure ang mga tao magtatanong na is this a part two, is this a sequel? Or this is going to be another story? Maski kami ni Bea, wala pa kaming alam. So hahayaan na namin ang Star Cinema na magsalita tungkol soon,” John Lloyd said. (
(But let me clarify to this day, nothing yet, I think Direk Cathy and the others will explain it, but I'm sure people will ask if this is part two, is this a sequel? Or this is going to be another story? Even Bea and I do not know about it. So we will leave it to Star Cinema to make the announcement.)
Bea and John are among showbiz's most celebrated love teams – particularly immortalized in Pinoy pop culture for their now iconic roles as lovers Popoy and Basha in tearjerker One More Chance back in 2007. They last appeared on-screen together in 2012's The Mistress.
Until then, you'll next see Bea in The Love Affair, where she co-stars with Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta. And there's always the newly remastered DVD version of the movie, plus a novel version of One More Chance until we next see Bea and John on-screen together again. – with reports from Alexa Villano/Rappler.com
