The movie version of hit daytime teleserye Be Careful with My Heart will no longer push through according to one of the lead actors Richard Yap aka Ser Chief.
In an interview with entertainment site PEP.ph, Richard confirmed that the movie version of the love story of Maya and his character Ser Chief is not getting its big screen version anymore.
"Uhm, baka hindi na kami gagawa ng Be Careful The Movie. Kung next year baka, pero ibang theme na siguro. Ibang story na siguro," Richard told PEP. "Official na wala nang movie," he emphasized.
The said version is supposed to be Star Cinema's official entry to MMFF 2013 but the movie outfit withdrew the film from this year's festival (read related story here). Star Cinema explained that they decided to pull out the movie due to the "tight schedule" of the cast and crew.
"In a way we were really [saddened], kasi hindi namin kaya pagsabayin sa sobrang ano ng taping namin. Kahit tapusin muna yung teleserye, hindi natin masabi," Richard said talking about the cancellation of the film.
"Basta hindi talaga puwedeng pagsabayin, mahirap on the part of the ano, siguro, the writers," he added.
Although there will be no movie version, fans of Be Careful with My Heart should not worry because they can still follow Maya and Ricky's love story on TV until next year.
"Naka-hanggang next year pa ang show, kasi it depends, e. Depende kung what the audience wants or what the viewers wants. E, medyo ayaw din naman matapos muna ng management," said Richard.
When asked who he wanted to be his leading lady if ever he will star in his first movie, Richard revealed that he's looking on Dawn Zulueta and Anne Curtis, aside from his Maya loves, Jodi Sta. Maria.
