Award-winning actors Angelica Panganiban and Gerald Anderson will be working together in the big screen for the first time in a sexy drama movie under Star Cinema. This was announced in a story conference held Friday.
The untitled project will be directed by Ruel Bayani, who gave us No Other Woman and One More Try. The director said that this Angelica-Gerald film will depart from his previous films in a way that there will be a "quiet and restrained" attack this time.
Direk Ruel also said that the movie is a big challenge not only for him but also for his actors.
"We want to keep it cinematic, engaging, emotional, compelling. Napakahirap na itimpla no'n... [To me, this is a challenge to make a film that is] sexy, mature, quiet, and restrained. Iba 'yung gano'n, eh. Pag hinuhuli mo 'yung porma, hindi mo agad mapi-pinpoint, at 'yun ang challenge para sa'kin doon," he told ABS-CBN News.
Meanwhile, the director also revealed that Angelica and Gerald will have many love scenes in the film, the story of which he describes as "a different kind of love that will obviously appeal to a more mature audience."
"There will be a lot of love scenes because when you talk about passion and mature love, hindi naman maiiwasan ‘yun (sexy scenes) kasi you're not young and confused anymore. Iba pag 'yung mature ka na. It's adult, I can say that. It's an adult kind of love story, adult kind of drama."
Gerald Anderson and Angelica Panganiban will be starting to shoot for the movie on Monday. The film is slated to be released this year.
