After they first worked together in the recent Metro Manila Film Festival entry Segunda Mano, Dingdong Dantes shared that he will be working with Angelica Panganiban again in Star Cinema’s upcoming movie with the working title One More Try. “It’s been a year na halos so siyempre I’m happy to work with Star Cinema again. Siyempre they gave me such a wonderful experience exactly a year ago,” he said.
Dingdong will play the role of Angelica’s husband in the adult drama that also stars Angel Locsin and Zanjoe Marudo. During the story conference for the film last May 8 at the ABS-CBN compound, Dingdong said he was very excited to start work on the project soon. “I feel very fortunate that I was given another chance to work with her so I’m very excited. Wala pang target date. Basta ang importante nagsimula na yung storycon so it’s going to start pretty, pretty soon. Sabi nga ni Direk, yung script is a work in progress. Kahit na on the set itself ay maraming maaaring magbago so malaking bagay rin yung mga personal input namin kaya exciting siya,” he said.
The 31-year-old actor also admitted that this will be his most daring role yet. The movie’s director Ruel Bayani had previously announced that One More Try plans to surpass the success of Star Cinema hit No Other Woman which he also directed. “Hindi pa naman namin napapag-usapan pero yung pagiging daring or siguro pagiging sexy nito is just a result ng pagka-kumplikado ng plot ng storya. I think kaya siya magiging daring dahil yun yung magiging resulta ng pagka-kumplikado ng plot. Siguro mas maganda na tingnan ko in the aspect na hindi siya very common na mangyari plus the fact na napakaganda ng storya so we’ll just give our best in the movie,” he said.
Dingdong said he made sure to ask permission from his home network before accepting Star Cinema’s offer. “Oo, hindi naman magiging possible ang lahat ng ito kung wala yung support ng GMA, particularly si Jimmy Duavit, si Atty. (Felipe) Gozon at saka si Miss Annette (Gozon-Abrogar) so I’m very thankful na pinayagan ako ulit to do another movie,” he said.
The heartthrob also said he is also looking forward to working with Angelica and Angel. “You know sa liit ng industriya, there will really come a point na makakatrabaho mo at ma-e-encounter mo ang iba’t ibang mga artista and I think this is the time na mangyayari yun,” he said.
The talented actor also said he and girlfriend Marian Rivera have already talked about One More Try and she approves of his new endeavor. “Of course, in fact she’s very supportive of it. Ganun naman kami sa mga kanya-kanya naming projects eh, we support each other. Dahil sa totoo naman eh kumukuha kami ng lakas sa isa’t isa,” he explained.
