Coco Martin is excited about doing an adaptation of 'Hihintayin Kita sa Langit' in 'Walang Hanggan'


121711-coco-main.jpgAfter the success of Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin for which he received awards and nominations from various notable organizations like the Gawad Urian, the KBP Golden Dove Awards, Golden Screen Awards, and Star Awards for TV, Coco Martin has definitely come a long way from his humble beginnings as an indie film actor.

Next year, the 30-year-old actor is set to headline another major primetime series entitled Walang Hanggan, which is adapted from the classic 1991 film Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit. Coco will be reprising the role of Richard Gomez (who will also be part of the cast of Walang Hanggan) while Julia Montes will be playing the role originally played by Dawn Zulueta. "Sobrang excited kami. Alam namin kung gaano namin pinaghirapan yung proyekto at bilang first time ko din makakasama sila Mr. Richard Gomez, Ms. Dawn Zulueta, si Ms. Susan Roces at Ms. Helen Gamboa," he shared with Push.com.ph.  

Coco said that he is currently gearing up for the major Kapamilya project, making sure to do a lot of research on romance dramas from the past. "Wala namang sobrang matinding preparation. Basta ang ginawa ko lang yung manuod ng manuod ng manuod ng mga love story noon. Ang sabi ko nga, panibagong challenge sa akin ito kasi first time ko gagawa talaga ng pure love story," he admitted.

Coco said people can expect to see him in a different kind of drama this time. "Malaki ang kaibahan nito sa mga dati kong nagawa kasi talagang nakaka-in love ito eh. Talagang pa-i-in love-in kayo dun sa story. Hindi ko pa masasabi kung may action eh. Pero definitely mas focused talaga ito sa love story and about family. Family drama din siya," he explained.  

For Christmas and New Year, the talented actor said that he is really looking forward to spending more time with his family. "Wala pa talagang mga plan po, baka sa bahay lang, magpapahinga and then siguro magtutuon ng time para sa family. Resolution ko kasi for next year is sana ma-manage ko yung time ko sa work at saka sa family kasi medyo sobrang busy ako ngayon na nawawalan ako ng time sa family," he admitted.

Coco also quashed any speculations people may have about him transferring networks. "Masaya ako. Nakikita niyo naman lahat ng ginagawa ko. Sobrang saya ng pasko sa ABS-CBN. Thank you at Kapamilya ako," he said.

Next year, among the projects Coco has lined up are movies with Judy Ann Santos and Star Power Grand Winner Angeline Quinto.
