For the first time ever, Kapamilya actress Kathryn Bernardo and Kapuso actor Alden Richards will team up in a film.
In an Instagram post of Star Cinema, Tuesday, March 12, it showed that the two big stars from the rival networks already met up to make this project official.
“So stoked!!!! Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina’s upcoming film will star Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards!,” Star Cinema said.
In an interview with Star Cinema, 22-year-old Bernardo admitted that she’s feeling nervous about this new movie. “Kinakabahan ako and nae-excite kung paano kaming dalawa. For sure I am very happy, nervous, and excited.”
On the other hand, 27-year-old Richards said that he’s grateful for this wonderful opportunity. “Yung thought na Star Cinema, tapos Kathryn ang makakapareha ko, tapos Direk Cathy, parang total package na ‘to,” he exclaimed. “Wala na akong mahihiling pa. Sobrang saya ko na I was given the chance to be here.”
When it comes to storyline, box-office hit director Molina shared some details. “The story is about two strangers meeting, and parang strangers talaga sila in real life,” she said.
Molina also shared that the genre will be romantic- drama and it will be shot in Hong Kong. “It’s a story about kabataan, mga millennials na OFWs. It’s a romance drama pero hindi mawawala ‘yung sundot ng comedy,” she ended.
Thee two talented actors are both part of the country’s leading love teams. Richards is the other half of “AlDub” with Maine Mendoza, while Bernardo is in “KathNiel” pair with Daniel Padilla.
