Will fans get 'One More Chance 2'? Bea, John Lloyd weigh in
MANILA, Philippines – Will fans ever get a sequel to the much-loved One More Chance?
This was the question reporters asked Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz during the launch of the movie’s remastered DVD and book by Juan Miguel Sevilla at the Fairview Terraces. While both are open to the possibility, they're treading carefully when it comes to that topic.
“Iyon nga yung tinatanong sa akin ni Direk Cathy [Garcia-Molina] kanina, but mahirap siyang sagutin eh. Hindi siya ganun kadali. Ang sabi ko lang sa kanya [Direk Cathy], kung makakapagtayo ng magandang kuwento at konektado pa rin sa totoong kuwento ni Popoy at ni Basha, eh bakit hindi?” John Lloyd said.
(That was the question Direk Cathy [Garcia-Molina] asked me a while ago, but it's very hard to answer. It's not that easy. I just told her, if we can have a great story and it's still connected to Popoy and Basha, then why not?)
"Pero kung pipilitin lang natin, siguro para sa akin, pangit kasi pag pinipilit. Lahat ng bagay na pinipilit, pumapangit,” he added.
(But if we force it, for me, it won't come out right. All things that are too forced, usually deteriorate.)
Bea said that she agrees with John Lloyd but was very happy that the fans are requesting a sequel.
"Siyempre nakaka-excite na may clamor, na gusto ng mga tao," Bea said. ”Pero kahit ako mas nangingibabaw 'yung kaba, kung kaya ba naming gawin.”
(Of course, it's very exciting that people want it. But for me, I'm more nervous if we can really pull it off.)
During the Q&A with bloggers and the audience, the two answered questions about the movie and even grilled each other about those famous lines. (READ: Bea Alonzo, John Lloyd Cruz share their favorite ‘One More Chance’ lines)

At the same event, Bea and John Lloyd confirmed that they would be starring in a new movie together. But it's important to note that there's no news at all about the plot. (Confirmed: Bea Alonzo, John Lloyd Cruz to star in new movie)
“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 laming alam. So hahayaan na namin ang Star Cinema na magsalita tungkol soon,” John Lloyd said.
(But let me clarify to this day, [there's no information] yet, I think Direk Cathy and the others will explain it, but I'm sure people will ask if this if this is a sequel? Or this is going to be another story? Even Bea and I do not know yet. So we will leave ito to Star Cinema to make the announcement.)
As for working on the new movie, both Bea and John Lloyd expressed their happiness to be doing another film. The two last worked together in 2012’s The Mistress.
“Pero oo, yung mga trabaho at mabigyan ka ng pagkakataon na makabatuhan mo uli si Bea pati si Direk Cathy this time and we might have the same writers, so napakalaking celebration sa aming lahat,” he added.
(But yes, this work, and the chance to exchange lines again with Bea and [work with] Direk Cathy this time, and we might have the same writers, so there's a lot for us to celebrate.) – Rappler.com
