Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo and Indie Prince Coco Martin will be paired in an upcoming movie. The still untitled movie of Sarah and Coco will start shooting next week according to reports.
Sarah Geronimo and Coco Martin attended the story conference for the said movie last February 6. The movie is another collaboration of Star Cinema and Viva Films and will be directed by Jerry Lopez Sineneng.
According to Coco, he was both nervous and pressured working with Sarah in this movie.
"Siyempre 'pag sinabi mong Sarah geronimo, mataas ang expectations ng tao. Sanay ako sa mga indie [films], kumbaga ito ang nakasanayan kong mundo and then ngayon papasok ako sa mundo ng mainstream at si Sarah Geronimo pa yung makakasama ko. Honestly, napakalaking pressure po para sa akin," Coco told ABS-CBN's Mario Dumaual. [WATCH THE VIDEO HERE]
Meanwhile, Sarah is equally honored and pressured to be working with Coco, who is one of the most-awarded actors of his generation.
"Galing galing niya talaga eh so dapat talaga sa pagkakataon na ito, makahabol talaga ako sa kanya," Sarah said.
Sarah and Coco will be joined by actress-host Ruffa Gutierrez in this movie, who said that she's very excited to be working with the singer. She also revealed that it was actually her first time (during the storycon) to meet Coco Martin in person, who she found cute.
Ruffa will be playing Sarah's mentor and will give one of the twists in the story.
The movie will be Sarah and Coco's first big screen team up. However, the two were already paired in the short-lived musical series Idol (stylized as 1DOL) way back in 2010.
